You have 1 or 2 percent of the parties registered voters that participate in these straw polls and caucuses that seldom reflect the nominee. A state should just send the number of deligates they are allowed to the convention. Fight it out there to decide the nominee. Thats the way it was designed to work. What do they mean?

"Stupid elections that are meaningless"? These aren't "new" things for "now". Are you wanting to change the government from a republic to a democracy? Is that kind of where you are going? Do you know why we have straw polls, caucuses, and primaries? It's kind of important why. Can you tell us why they exist and should be replaced and replaced with what? tferretti, Um, “Now” we have straw polls, caucuses, and primaries? “Stupid elections that are meaningless”?

Let the republicans and democrate have their conventions in August or September, get together and choose a candidte they think can win. These primaries are a waste of money and time. The the only purpose is to increase the advertizing renenue for the media. Now we have straw polls, caucuses and a bunch of other stupid elections that are meaningless and only used to give the media something to releive the boredom..

This freedom is all too often an exaggeration. At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies." -Mark Lloyd (Obama FCC Czar on controlling free speech) This is an old piece of agenda from Vladimir Lenin who said, "It is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed." There's a reason the current leftists are saying similar things as the old Marxists and it's no coincidence. It;s time people compare the two. It will help understand where the left is trying to take the nation and why they look to limit 1st and 2nd amendment rights, use the press as propaganda leverage and a community organizer, and gain further control over the people by debauching the currency to hurt the middle class to drag them down and creating hatred for the rich causing class warfare which will cause the proletariat to rise up to tear the top down, which will collapse the economy. Then the nation can be reborn in Marxism. “It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press. This freedom is all too often an exaggeration.

The point is that America has become so divided that we need COURAGE and TOLERANCE and AUTOMATIC MECHANISMS to keep us afloat. We don't need you're angst, we don't need your knee jerk reaction to what someone said or if they had a (D) or an (R) beside their name. But instead of comprehending the points being made by the people on both sides of the political spectrum, you trot out worn cliches of TREASON! Good job for a group of mouth breathers. Did your ancestors happen to be Buffalo Hunters? Somehow all of you idjits missed the point and leapt right to proving it.
