Primary elections

It is my desire that the U.S. primary elections were available to everyone, to vote for anyone, regardless of the political part affiliation 1. In fact, I would not make a requirement to affiliate to a specific party at all.

Why? If I am registered, for example, democrat, but I see that the choices of the Democratic Party are not “presidential” material, then I would like to be able to vote (even at the primaries) for the best of the other party. Am I making any sense?

The upcoming Presidential Elections will be very interesting (they have already been, having started one year –or more– earlier).

  1. Aha! What I want is called “open primary”. Unfortunately, Florida primaries are closed
