    we're moving in a direction that favors the Big Money people. As imperfect as the system is, we're going in the wrong direction.

      By that I'm guessing you mean the candidates with the most money right?

      If so what is the difference? The candidates with the most money usually wins anyway even in a longer race because they have staying power.

      I get you sentiments I really do. But I think the answer to your dilemma is campaign finance reform not a longer primary season.

      And truth be told spending on presidential races has got so out of hand and given that money is free speech I don't know that we can ever have meaningful campaign finance reform sad to say.

      Yeah there still is public financing that is available now but it just is not enough money to compete.
