I’m from Vermont where we have had open primaries forever and it’s great. It works, and we have one of the healthiest democracies in the country. The only purpose behind closed primaries is to consolidate power away from the general populace.
You admit in your article that you are a Clinton supporter. That’s honest, though it means, to me, that you are ethically and morally compromised, so of course you advocate for closed primaries. You want to see power further consolidated away from the general populace.
Shame on you.
