Can we please just get one basic thing straight here? Mandating open primaries would be unconstitutional. The political parties are private associations of voters. They are entitled by the First Amendment and the Supreme Court's ruling in NAACP v. Alabama in 1958 to freedom of association, including the freedom to allow only members of the organization to participate in their decision as to who to back for political office. If they CHOOSE to allow non-members to weigh in on their choice in order to improve their prospects of backing a winner, they are entitled to, but they cannot be forced to.

While we're at it can we also get straight that registering for any party, including the Green Party, is NOT even really becoming a "member" of that party. Did you join the party's Central Committee? No? You're not even really a member. Registering a party preference is nothing more than a request that you get that party's ballot in the next primary election, and thereby a tacit nod of support to that party. It is not actual membership.

So, sorry folks. Insisting on standing by your "independent" or "no party preference" status, instead of taking five minutes to register for the party who has a candidate you support on their primary ballot is pure chicken shit. If you can't even go on record on the voter rolls as wanting that party's ballot, and take 5 min. to change it if your preference changes, then you deserve not to vote in the primary.
"Voting is not a RIGHT in this country," but it should be! Until voting becomes the right and not the "privilege" of every citizen, the two major - corrupted political parties will continue to throw up roadblocks that dis...

Actually, those "private associations - Democrats and Republicans" have rigged the process to be the only game in town --- No third-party candidates have ever gotten one single electoral vote since the two major parties formed agreements with corporate TV and fixed 15% poll ratings in order to be part of televised debates. They just blackout media coverage of anyone except the "private associations" - I personally see these "parties" being kicked to the curb by the next generation.

WTF does this have to do with Christmas, or any holiday for that matter.  You need to be forced to watch A Charlie Brown Christmas 500 straight times, not to mention having your electricity cut off for the entire month of December every year from now on.
