5. Wish I were angrier. Just US democracy disillusioned. Will write-in.
This early-primary seems a win-win for the right-wing benefactors.

1. Angers voters so they might not vote in November. (And, not illegal unlike caging.)

2. Reduces the ads and coverage so the candidate will be LESS well known.

3. Reduces our expectations for democratic systems, and reduces our desire to stand for democratic action.

4. If Kucinich were to win it could be dismissed on several levels: only one, no others to easily choose, no ads, low turnout (likely).

It's easy to buy a bunch of Republicans.
It's easy to buy a few Democrats.

..and we just don't get mad anymore.
