    Default I want a playoff system

    If the politicians insist on launching 8 candidates and come through my state with them all intact.... I want to re cast my vote when 6 of them drop out. I do not believe my vote counted or voice was heard during the primary and the landscape would look much different had we been down to 2 or 3 candidates when they came to okla primary season.

    thoughts?

    My problem with the current primary season was that the outcome was decided by certain states with relatively low electoral votes....No offense to those of you that live in Iowa, SoCarolina but they do not reflect the views of the nation..

    I would be in favor of a National primary or even a regional primary...but the current primary season is way too long, and the early states have way too much influence

    I had a huge problem with the Primary debates. The media picked the winners by giving the presumed winners most of the speaking time and not allowing different opinions to be heard. The Primary debates are suppose to be about hearing a debate and the differences among candidates. All the time was given to Romney, Gingrich and Santorum.

    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    The other problem with the primary season is either make them all vote or al caucus and the winner take all system is BS

If you don't like it, too bad, go pout somewhere else because this is the way it's gonna be. He is definitely an anti-union guy. That's irrelevant, he will make the tough decisions to right the ship. He has proven that already. All political beliefs aside, he's doing the best job of any governor in recent memory. I didn't like him at first, but the more I see how he is making things better here, the more I like him. I'd vote for him if he ran for president.
