Repeal The Seventeenth Amendment

Ravnwood has a brilliant piece up on the 17th Amendment and the erosion of states rights .

I'd just ad, as a former Vermont resident, that I am glad they are looking in this direction. Vermont probably has the fewest miles of interstate highways in the entire country, and according to Steve is only recieving $10 million a year in Federal Funds anyway. It seems to me that the state would take in well over $10 million in increased tax revenue just on the sale of beer to the kids in Burlington . . . . let alone through all the additional skiers and snowbaorders the state would attract during the winter.

Sounds like a great plan to me (both repealing the 17th Amendment and the 21 Years Old to drink law)
