  1. IVN – Re: Virginia Loyalty Oath: Party Over Country

    I’d make the parties fund and administer their own primaries or caucuses or whatever.

    If I as a taxpayer am not on the hook for any of the costs of the primary, then why should I care about how a party picks its candidates?

    @RichardWinger
    @mikewb1971 “U.S. political parties never wanted primaries at all. Primaries were forced on them.”

    Who exactly forced primaries upon the political parties in the United States, other than elected officials from those same political parties (most likely Democrats and Republicans) ?

    And that makes me wonder if the lawsuits you brought up above were anything but token opposition.

    The GOP and LP seem to have the same sort of relationship that MS Windows and Linux have.

    No, the LP isn’t going to be taking over any time soon. But every election cycle (Windows release), the “dominant” side of the relationship (MS, GOP) loses a few of its adherents.

    #11 — The State Constitutional bar to idiot voting doesn’t seem to have been the slightest bit effective, under either meaning of the word “idiot.”

    Maybe. At this stage of the circus, if I had to pick a Republican, it would be Rand Paul.

    Under NO circumstances will I endorse, vote for, or otherwise support Christie, Carson, or Bush.

    Neither hemp nor pot are sold in bottles. Which means that those intending to throw bottles from the hotel balcony have to get them from some other product.
