For the next republican presidential primary they should use a popular vote.

Have some televised debates then put it to a 50 state vote.

1. That would never work well, they would get outrageous candidates that would muck up the system.

9. Does it require one?

I'm pretty sure they're free to choose their candidate-selection methodology in just about any way they see fit.

5. Are you offering solutions for them that would help them win the general?

Fuck 'em. Let them figure it out.

From what I've heard from them so far, they still don't see it.

They continue to think it is their messenger, or their delivery. They don't get the obvious truth.....

America doesn't like their message.

6. Why not just have it reflect reality?

Make it a telethon ...

whomever raises the most amount of money gets the nomination for candidacy ...

7. I think bikini jello wrestling would be the way to go.

My money's on Paul Ryan, if they go that way, cause he's so buff
