    move the senate from popular election back to being appointed by the state legislators and we would have a much different federal government

    One of the biggest mistakes back in 1913 we ever made was the 17th amendment to the US Constitution.

    Everyone is a tax payer and everyone owns property. Property in the 1700's was considered things a person owns, like slaves or a wife (JK), not just land. BTW not many people own there house outright.
