Georgia Congressman Paul Broun Wants To Repeal The 16th And 17th Amendments
Conservatives claim to love the Constitution. It’s those pesky amendments that mucked everything up. GOP Congressman Paul Broun thinks the country began going to Hell in a handbasket with Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson. Now, if only we could get rid of taxes and the popular election of senators.

BROUN: Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson started this process of socializing America, and they did it with the, Woodrow Wilson, particularly, pushes the 16th amendment that taxes income directly, and the 17th amendment that allows the direct elect of US senators, because the US senators intially were supposed to represent the states. […] I’d like to see the 16th amendment and the 17th amendment to be repealed finally, and that’s going to be a long process.
