End caucuses.


Natural experiments have occurred, where states have a caucus, and then a 'beauty contest' ballot later, along with their primary for state and local and other federal offices.

In each instance, the caucus result been contradicted by the general balloting, usually by striking margins. Caucuses do not reflect the sentiment of the voting public.

"When things are not called by their right names, what is said cannot make sense. When what is said does not make sense, what is planned cannot succeed. When plans do not succeed, people become uneasy. When people are uneasy, punishments do not fit crimes. When punishments do not fit crimes, people cannot know where to put hand or foot."
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
