- I Am BernieOrBust commented on Open Primaries President John Opdycke on Boston Herald Radio 2017-03-23 00:38:35 -0400I live in WI where we have open primaries and same day registration. 2016 really woke me and millions of others up as to how politics are run/manipulated in this country. I have always voted in the primaries and just “assumed” that all the states had open primaries and so did most everyone I talked to in this state. Our Bad, we should be paying attention and now that we are, I am outraged at our system of “DeMOCKracy” Since our government is run by “Private Parties” the tax payers SHOULD NOT have to pay for their dog and pony shows. Thank you for all your work and efforts to help right these wrongs.
