    Thanks for this post! Very helpful. Quick question: Why are you voting Yes to Constitutional Amendment 3? I’m terrified Nixon will get re-elected and go nuts appointing liberal judges!

      Currently, all the justices up for retention seem to be Pro-Choice / Liberal. So, if Nixon gets in, it’s not like he’d be changing them from Conservative to Liberal.

      It sets up a situation where a Conservative governor could appoint 4 Conservatives to the Nomination Commission… …along with the 3 from the Missouri Bar (typically liberal).

      The 4 Conservatives appointed by the Governor (the elected representative of the people) could outweigh the lawyers and lead to good Conservatives on the bench.

      It gives the Governor more power as well as accountability to the task and reduces the power of the unelected lawyers. We can vote the Governor out if we don’t like the choices.
