States' Rights Took Beating Almost 100 Years Ago

I came across an interesting fact that the 17th Amendment changed the voting of senators from the states' legislatures to mimic the general population vote of the House.  Was that intended to give the people more of a voice?

So, states' rights were diminished in 1913.  Wonder how that will play out as the federal government takes on more power and control of our citizens' lives?
