And Another Thing That Gets Me Fired Up

The democratic and republican parties in the state of Washington will hold caucuses on February 9th. They will also hold primaries on the 19th????

A 1988 initiative mandates a primary. hence we have A primary. The democrats will hold a primary on the 19th and if you swear on a stack of bibles that you are a democrat they will hand you a ballot and you will fill it out and then they will crumple it up and toss it in the waste basket. Gee thanks

The republicans aren't much better. At least they are giving some weight to the primary
in choosing delegates.

While it is important to vote. Both parties have banded together to do everything in their power to thwart the will of the electorate. I an am disillusioned by both parties and I will not be participating in their primacaucuses.

I wonder what the constitionality of ignoring a vote would be. Even with the primay, you need some way to pick delegates. The Washington Primary is known as a "beauty contest" where the media can see how the nomination is playing out.
