The latest attempt to preserve the two party system from competition

23 Jun

This earnest looking, establishment pajama boy explains why all parties should be in one primary so all but two establishment party candidates can be eliminated months before the general election, by having the two parties, with their corporate PAC money and union bused and managed voters, eliminate any competition in the primaries.

This is one suspects a direct response to the two parties losing so many voters to the ranks of registered independents (and also to non-voters).  It’s a repeat of when the Democrats and Republicans virtually outlawed new parties during the Great Depression, with tough new ballot access laws, because Socialist and other parties started electing mayors.

Does that mean they know we are teetering on the brink?  It’s the establishment’s way of saying “assume crash position?”
