When I Make the Rules: Primary Election Edition

As Supreme Rule Maker, I would decree a national primary election day on the second Saturday of May instead of this poorly designed system of choosing a leader. Since I will be Supreme Rule Maker, elections will actually be pointless but still better than letting Iowans and the folks from New Hampshire picking our presidential candidates.

Mr. ThirtyWhat and I were just talking about this ... why isn't there a national primary day the way we have a national election day? Is there a point in having Iowa and New Hampshire vote first?

I agree there should be one day where all states should hold their primaries. But if you want to take this a step further and have total election reform, reduce the number of signatures required to even get on a ballot and get rid of gerrymandering. Both Republicans and Democrats in office bastardize the voting districts to insure their next win. I am for keeping the electoral college though.
