It is absolutely ridiculous to ask to get rid of the Senate. This is obviously a Democrat idea because most of the most populous states are Democratic and the removal of a Senate would take power away from the smaller Republican in states. An argument for publicly funded elections is a much more cohesive argument than one to rid our government of the Senate. Forcing government run elections would very efficiently take money out of politics if the guidelines are strict and made sure that they are followed. If you actually think removing the Senate, one of the most important governmental bodies that makes the United States what it is, is a good idea, you have no place in our Constitutional Republic. The Senate protects the minority. Just because you don’t like that minority doesn’t mean you should be allowed to take their protection away.
