People Infiltrating the Club

Jane Sanders says primary process "Wrong." Going further she says the process is alienating potential voters and weighted to favor establishment candidates.

More than the primary process the two party system itself is the bigger problem. It assures the American people only have to decide between two people. The rise of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump really illustrate the masses becoming more involved in the long-range political process. The upcoming primary in New York State illustrates party politicking at work. In order to vote in the Democratic primary a voter in New York State would have had to register as a Democrat by October 9th, 2015! How in the world does this give independents and non-affiliated voters any say or part play in our democracy?
