    have primaries. They deride Republicans for "falling in line" at the end, but don't recognize that expecting Democrats to fall in line at the beginning is even worse. At a minimum, their candidates don't get any free press. Of course, that makes the paid propagandists happy.

    The corporatocracy doesn't like democracy.

    We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.

      Also, a primary forces a candidate to get out there and visit the whole state, BEFORE the general.  So besides the free press helping the eventual candidate, it also makes the eventual candidate a better candidate when it comes time to fight the Republicans.  

      Please, please, please let there be a vigorously contested primary.
