The Tennessee Judiciary
The Tennessee General Assembly must return to the constitutional method of putting judges on the bench:
There is nothing in the Tennessee Constitution about Judicial Nominating Committees, Judicial Selection Committees, or "retention votes." The so-called retention vote was an invented contraption designed to give the illusion of constitutional compliance while the judicial branch of government became completely aloof from the general public in this State. The intent of the framers of Tennessee's Constitution be damned, because the judicial elites in Tennessee long ago decided that the founders of this State were wrong, and that voters are just too stupid to choose the judges who will rule over us.
