Getting back to the fundamental flaws of the presidential selection process, especially during the primary season, it may well be that the few caucus voters think that they have a particularly important stake in voting for one candidate rather than another. After all, politics is about the distribution of scarce resources.

All the same the people will vote for the biggest handout.

Simplement l'angoisse comme il est intéressant quoi que ces sujets était perçue s'il y avait tout sens devant derrière ? ? Sûrement, le problème compétent, mais je pense on ne sait pourquoi qu'en dispersant les suppositions personnelles nous ne contribuerons pas du tout...

Good evening. The gambling known as business looks with austere disfavor upon the business known as gambling. Help me! I can not find sites on the: addiction drug rehab treatment. I found only this - cocaine treatment. Don choose people who are weak or who have an alcohol problem. Principal investigators - gloria krahn, ph. THX :o, Prudence from Austria.

Cheryl, yes, yes, yes.
In today's New York Times, Gail Collins describes the craziness of caucuses in Texas the other night. For her column, see:

This is not a way to select presidential nominees.

I think that this should be covered more by the media.
It sounds like an rediculous process to me.
I think most people, like myself, have no idea that the Caucus's are so shoddy.
The same with the issues in Florida and Michigan. Most people in the Country had no idea what was happening in these states.
I bet that most of the citizens in these states had no idea what was going on as they went out to excercise thier right to cast their vote.
It appears that most of the citizens in the Caucus States also had no idea how the caucus worked and so it favored the very youngest voters who love to attend rallies.
In the United States of America,
EVERY CITIZEN SHOULD HAVE THEIR VOTE COUNTED.
EVERY CITIZEN SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO HAVE THEIR VOTE COUNTED IN PRIVACY.
I sounds to me like the Caucus process is designed for people who like confrontation,
who are young and have time to hang out in uncomfortable conditions and have a pep rally.
I think if the News Media covered these issues American citizens would reject the Caucus Process and the Punishing of Citizens who had no say about the date of their primaries.

The Caucus process should be eliminated.
The RNC AND THE DNC should be the ones punished for trying to deny voters their right to vote, not the Florida and Michigan voters.
