Propose National Presidential Primary


Letter to the Editor, November 2004

I am a Republican who voted for Kerry. That doesn’t mean I was enamored with Kerry. Quite the opposite, I was one of the many that voted against Bush sensing that he wasn’t up to the job.

I never see this mentioned but I think the way the candidates are selected is atrocious. Why should the whole country be forced to vote for presidential candidates usually selected by the insignificant states of Iowa or New Hampshire.

I propose a nationwide primary three months before the general election to select the Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates. This would save time and money cut down on negative campaigning and gives everyone a say on every candidate
