THE U. S. SENATE FILIBUSTER RULE DAYS ARE NUMBERED!!!
Somebody needs to explain the facts about the role of the U. S. senate in terms of states rights. I wrote many years ago that the people gave up their real power when they allowed the government to seize the social and family provider role for its self. 

Whoever is the provider is the real boss and has the final say like it or not. And on the other hand the states also gave up their real power by enacting the seventeenth amendment. Before the seventeenth amendment state governors and legislatures exercised almost total control over their two appointed senators. 

When senators were appointed they answered to their state governor and state legislature and didn’t need to depend on special interest to get reelected. Sure, it was extremely political and bitter on who would be appointed, so the states took the course of least resistance and decided to let the people decide. 

Constitutional-wise U. S. representatives were primarily designed to represent the people in congress, and U. S. senators were primarily designed to represent the states in congress. In this writer’s view the senate filibuster rule days are numbered because if the republicans doesn’t end it, when the Dem’s get back in power they certainly will.

How in the hell can the states maintain a check on an all powerful out of control run-a-way big government when it can't control it's own two senators. 

PS: No one truly knows, but this writer will take a shot in the dark and say: There is a better than 60 percent chance that the senate republicans will go over the 60 mark in 2018.
