3. No, they don't, but

I'm not sure if this is true
Although early voting is not available, Connecticut's closed primaries have same-day registration, which means that if an unaffiliated voter were to miss the deadline to register for an election, they could register and vote in person on the day of the primary.

4. It's a little complex

It's closed, but it is not all that hard to change from unaffiliated to Dem. It seems a bit confusing about the deadlines for from Repub to Dem.

12. Voting should not be this difficult! We are able to transfer millions of dollars in minutes ...

for millionaires and billionaires, but we make most of the "common folk" jump through three hoops to have a say.

Today I spoke with a nurse in Pa. her shift as a nurse on Tuesday happens to be 7-7:30 so she doubts she will have time. Last week a spoke with a NY transit employee, we spoke for almost 15 minutes (my longest call ever) he had bought a home north of the city in 2005. We know 2005 was at the height of the housing bubble, between work and a doctor's appointment he doubted he would have time to vote.

The Dems, if they truly were interested in all votes, should be doing more to make people aware of the deadlines in each state. Still it should not be this hard!!!

11. I don't get it

How is it that a candidate can go from state to state drawing thousands upon thousands of people, yet be "second?"

How is it that the candidate who can barely roust up 400 people is the leading candidate? How is that?

Somebody 'splain.

13. I can't...

It's never made sense...

UNLESS you consider that the entire election system is not supportive of any honest candidate, as it does NOT fit into the math model as set forth by the corporations.

15. Like this morning...

I caught the first minute of some of the Sunday morning blather shows...

Rump, Hill, Rump, Hill, Rump, Hill...

Kasich.

And it's over for Bernie.

16. Fits that model very well, doesn't it?

I'm willing to look the corporatist driven neo-feudalism script in the eye and say, "I'm not buying your wad of shit programming anymore, so how do you like dem apples?"
