    Both parties better wake up to the FACT that most Americans are fed up with the games played by TPTB to control what ought to be simple, straight forward nomination and election processes.

    We the People are perfectly capable of making our own choices and frankly resent things like “super delegates” and people who get more than one vote.

    Maybe sooner than they think, people will ask for their names to be put on the party’s ballot and then the people will be permitted to choose at the primary level.

    And hopefully some day soon Independents will be permitted to participate in the process. There is an effort already going on to see that that happens. Independents make up 42% of the national registered voters and yet are precluded in this State and some others from voting in the primary.

    We need to clean the back room dealers out because they so often skew the results.

      INDEPENDENTS CAN VOTE in the primary – and WILL, this year…mark my word. They’ve had enough. So have I.

        The only way in NJ is to stop being an Independent and register as a Republican or a Democrat. Now that can be done even on election day but it takes a very long time if you go that route. Better to do it ahead of time.
        Then after the election, Independents have to go and register again as Independents.

        More and more states are allowing Independents to vote as Independents but many States like NJ are not going along with the program. There is a large movement in California going on right now that hopefully will spread.
