Many things continue to lead us down the path of destruction in this state and nation. When was the last time that any of you can remember a 80 - 90% turn out of voters? Most likely not a chance anywhere in this country. At the risk of offending some people I must point out the fact that Americans as a whole have become basicly lazy. We complain about things yet do nothing to fix it. Most whine that they won't vote because it does no good. This is true and false. If they continue to go major party all the time it is true. Closed primaries don't help this any. That is just a control freak action out of the major parties. Most elections across this nation have a 30% voter turn out at best. 51% of that doesn't mean squat. It sure does not give majority concent. Bad thing is many will vote the way they do because the want to pat themselves on the back for voting for a winner. Too many claim the smaller parties can't win. This is garbage. I see many coments which would put some of you all in line to go 3rd party. If the Major parties are in power with a 30% turn out, imagine an election with 80-90% turn out with the 50-60% difference going to someone other than the big two. Don't tell me it can not be done. It can! It's just a matter of people off their rumps and doing it.
