"Peter" has some thoughts on open primaries.
Once again the Republican establishment is showing us how utterly stupid they are. Having open primaries is letting the enemy inside the tent.
Trump has won in states with open primaries. Cruz has won only in states with closed primaries. Cruz is clearly the choice of the conservative base of the Republican party, while Trump is clearly the favorite of democrats voting as Republicans. Sure, Trump also has some Republican voters, but not enough to win without the help of the non-Republican voters.
Why don't we have open general elections, too? Then anyone, citizen or not, could help elect our leaders....Stupid idea, right?
