  •  Yes, nullification and succession. (8+ / 0-)

    Missouri fought on the Union side even though it was a slaveholding state.   A coalition of Dems and Big Money St. Louis Rs will keep Missouri in the Union again.  :-)  

    it's frustrating here (and there are times I wish the St. Louis metro area could secede from the state), but it's not the deep South and won't be.  Unlike Michigan, we still have closed union shops.   No right to work here.  Yes, there are a lot of numbnuts from outstate, but they do not have total control.  

    And the Missouri supreme court is liberal, I think 5 or 56 of the 7 are Dems.  

    Since 1992, there has only been one R governor and only for one term.  8 years Carnahan, 4 for Holden, and now it will be 8 for Nixon (up to 2016).  So 20 of 24 years will have a Dem governmor.

        Tha tmeans St. Louis and KC metro areas each get two senators, and the rest of Missouri goes bankrupt without our tax money.
