    Our Democratic Party members voted for candidates at our meetings. Were you ever a member? Did you do the [sometimes tedious] work of interviewing candidates who appeared at meeting to ask for our votes? If you call yourself a Democrat, do you participate in any way other than voting?

      Our Party should have the right to pick our candidate. It's our party; it's our candidate. We did the work, then we ask for the votes, door-to-door. If others don't like that, they should form their own party, pick their own candidates, do their own damn work.

      •  In Washington State offices are held by PEOPLE (0+ / 0-)

        The Constitution of the state cares not one wit about parties.

        The system of voting here does provide for a form of party affiliation on the ballot. I would grant you that I would like to see it adjusted so that a party could identify it's preferred candidate.

        Overall, we get better results, higher turnout and so far, it has favored Democrats and progressives.
