  2. He entirely misses the point! When they changed the constitution to have Senators elected directly, it gave away too much power to Washington! The reason it was changed was so the Cabal could get the Federal Reserve established. The Senate kept blocking their efforts. The purpose of the Senate IS to protect the rights of the States. We no longer have a balance of power, and any tin pot dictator in DC can take us to war, or do anything they want to, and the States have no say in it.

  3. Its political satire man, and the point he made is what he said in the end. If we elect them we prove them right...That if those who think that the people should have no right in who runs their Senate, then those people can't be trusted. His point, is that Senate is corrupt. Very corrupt, that if there is one piece of US Gov. that is the most corrupt. It is the Senate, everything passes through it. So don't vote for those, who wont stand up for you. That's his message.
