It was designed to be the “conservative institution” by the same Constitution that deemed African-Americans were 3/5ths of a person.
It might be time to rethink. Along with the anti-monarchical movement in England, there is also an anti-House of Lords movement.
What exactly was the purpose of the “House of Lords” in America? For surely, that is what the “Senate” is.
The Romans did no better job relying on their “Senators.” It was in their name the “Republic” was founded, and it was they who also betrayed it.
So maybe the real reason the Senate is “dysfunctional,” in the eyes of so many, is because it is time to say ‘bye-‘bye.
I welcome any so-called “Constitutional Conservatives” to reply.
