Amendment 3 is an example of why the legislature shouldn't be in the Amendment business. If you or I wanted to get an Amendment change on the ballot, we'd have to collect 600,000+ signatures and pay upwards of 10 cents a signature for verification. If the grifters in Tallahassee want to do it, they just vote on it, which is why we get obviously partisan Amendments like this one. Not very fair, is it?

I voted no on 3 but as you can see some people are so concerned with partisan politics they are to naďve to look at finer details.

If they're that concerned/consumed with partisan politics, they vote the way their party tells them to, and don't look at the details at all.

I voted yes on it. In the world of gridlock and ultra partisanship that we live in today we need to make little things like this easier to accomplish.

Interesting. So you think it's a good idea to allow the OUTGOING Governor to replace retiring Supreme Court judges on the same day he leaves office instead of letting the Governor-elect do it? Even for Florida this is a sneaky way to pack the courts.

I understand at times this will work against my own politics. I'm a democrat, and if this law passes Scott will no doubt appoint a bunch of judges that I probably won't like, but in the future maybe a democrat will appoint judges I do like.

I am a millenial. And I have only ever known the most ruthless partisan obstructionism this country has ever seen. I want the governor to have more power to get things done.

The outgoing governor????
If not reelected, it would seem that 'the people' decided they did not want anymore decisions made by him.
