Just let the same corrupt states first in line every year and wonder why the primaries produce such disappointing results.
"A deficit is what you've got when you haven't got as much as if you just had nothing. If we tried any of this, we'd end up in jail, but the government gets rid of its debts by nationalizing them. That's like the alcoholic who solved his problem by pouring the booze in all of his bottles into one big container. Himself." (Charlie Farquharson, edited for spelling)

Corrupt or not, how come Iowa gets to pick for all the rest of us?  That's what happens because the candidates that lose in Iowa and other early states, which are small, drop out long before most of us can have our say about who we like.

1.  Stop allowing non-Republicans from voting in primaries.

2.  6 months as a registered Republican to vote in primaries.

3.  No retreads.

4.  One socon.

5.  One libertarian con.

6.  RINOs to the back of the line.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Agreed. In my state, registered independents can vote in primaries. They just have to tell the poll worker which ballot they want. The fact is that most conservatives register as independent here because they don't want anyone to know they're not Democrats. I've actually had business owners tell me it would hurt business if they appeared to be Republicans. I say hooey, not with the state getting redder and redder each election cycle. It's frustrating to see people so scared to "fish or cut bait."
