We have to find a way to stop the Democrats from crossing over and voting in the Republican primaries. I know it’s legal for them to do it, but it violates the spirit of having the primaries. They have been selecting both candidates.
Another thing we could do is move the first primary from Iowa and in a place, like, oh I don’t know, Oklahoma. You know, a place that still values Conservatism and let the chips fall into place from there.
The GOP would be better served if they held their first primaries in states like Utah, Oklahoma, and Wyoming, instead of Democrat states like Iowa and New Hampshire.
I believe that is entirely up to the party in each state whether or not the primary is “open”. So it would be easy to change.
I don’t see why any party would have an open primary. I can understand the “jungle” style primaries where everybody runs in a first round. But to have a partisan election and let people from your adversary party vote, I just don’t get why that is not a recipe for mischief if not disaster.
The problem really wasn’t Romney, it was that all the good alternatives to him either didn’t run or self-destructed.
I mean what the heck happened to Rick Perry?
