14. Proud of what Michigan has done.
The problem is how the media and big donor money games the system so only their chosen candidates gets heard. Take away the right of the media to control the dialogue. We need a national primary and demand free air time , since the media only rents the airwaves from us. Reaon for a National primary with free access to all certified candidates. Say, Oregon / Washington could go before are at the same time as Iowa, New Hampshire. Think it would have been a race between Obama or Clinton. Who goes first , games the results to favor the preferences of the non urban states and eliminates people such as Edwards. I have had enough. If some other states limits my choice of candidates, I take it personally.
