I for one like this; allows more time for the populace to get to know the candidate and what they want their "establishment" to stand for. Plus this like the a 2 year super bowl for any political science majors out there. The caucus are ran like a focus group. For instance, everyone knows California is primarily liberal--- hence why the republic caucus in California is so important to a republic Caucasus. Each party is able to gather the demographics of the state and project long term outcomes. If they can't win after a certain point, the PACs, even common people will realize its' a lost cause. You can't caucus because your independent as I am. The last time a caucus went beyond party lines we called it Watergate. The Dollar is a monetary based on trust. The value of the dollar is factored by who & how leads our trust, like the The President. So Putin can back Trump---- Hillary & Bill keeps campaigning speeches around the world--- Bernie just does what Bernies does... I don't think its' a joke. Even editorials and column pieces all have bias, Hunter S. Thompson taught me you can't eliminate bias--- at least for the most part. With Mainstream Media I know they have more money than the candidates themselves, and are more bought by exclusive interviews than money. How they spin it from there is up to their professionalism, which is why I personally stick not to just FOX, CNN, or CBS--- but between them as to see how they disseminate bullmanure. Editorials are also a great forum of free-journalism, but at that level that seems who can SEO the best. "Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around the laws." - Plato What if I told you the Pultocracy leaves loopholes in the laws they're entrusted to make in congress so they could abuse those holes for themselves? The Democracy that knows about it be like, "We don't get paid enough to care."
