QOTD: "Without the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, would be reduced to "just words on paper," Scalia warned. He also reminded audience members that the Founding Fathers did not deliberate over the Bill of Rights during the Constitutional Convention of 1787. Instead, they debated over structure of the federal government.

The most damaging change to this structure came in the form of the 17th Amendment, which provided for the direct, popular election of U.S. senators, Scalia said. Prior to when the amendment was ratified in 1913, state legislators would appoint U.S. senators. While this amendment was viewed as step forward for democracy, Scalia argued that it removed a key component of the constitutional structure the framers had put in place to protect federalism and state interests.

"You now have senators who have no connection to the state government, never been in state government and some of them have never been to the state," Scalia observed during his talk." --Kevin Mooney
