She sounds fine. I had planned to vote for Maya Wiley, but was informed that it would be illegal for me to do so from California. Damn Republicans.

So it's easier for v63 to vote illegally in the NY general, than for an Independent to vote in the primary?

It's not illegal for independents to vote in a primary in New York. It's the same as me getting to vote on matters that happens in your house. Primaries that aren't closed should be illegal.

In one party cities like New York and rural areas most everywhere primaries are tantamount to election so closing primaries denies a vast swath of voters a choice. On the other hand, party bosses love closed primaries.

I could say that about your house. I should get a say too, right? Parties aren't public institutions.

And another thing. It's not the Democratic Party's fault that you're not interested in winning. Not interested in succeeding. Not interested in growing your numbers. Not interested in competing for support. Not interested in accomodating someone that doesn't agree with you via collaboration.

They only reason they open is so that outsiders can game the party. Same thing with California's jungle primaries.
