Well it looks like another rich out-of-touch republican idiot is going to run away with the republican nomination this year. I guess I’m very much on the liberal side of things as far as my political and social veiwpoints go, and I just can’t grasp my mind around how republican policies are in any way smart or good decisions. I cannot fathom how Mitt Romney has any appeal, or Newt Gingrich, or Rick Santorum for that matter. The only republican candidate I would even consider voting for is Ron Paul…his policies make so much sense to me, and I can’t understand why he trails everyone else in these primaries!?! But about a week ago I realized why: only registered republican voters can vote in the primary, and like I said, republicans just have a different way of thinking. And it led me to think, “Shouldn’t everyone be allowed to vote in any primary, regardless of party?” I mean I think the whole “party” system is dumb anyway, but as an example - there are a lot of people who are not registered republicans that like Ron Paul, and would like to see him be president…shouldn’t they have the right to vote for him in the primary, so their voice can be heard? Shouldn’t ALL Ron Paul supporters, or any of the other candidate’s supporters, be able to vote in the primaries, regardless of their party, in order to actually vote for them for president down the road? I mean isn’t that a better representation of what the people actually want? Just a thought…
