20. The problem is...
... that a front-loaded primary system heavily based on fund-raising prowess results in the nomination of candidates who are already sold out to moneyed interests before you ever get to pull a lever in the general election - and before 75% of us even get to pull a lever in a *primary* election. Explain to me why the Democratic stronghold of California has no say in who the Presidential nominee is, for no reason other than the date of its primaries!
