"What do the party bosses have against the voters in the 45 states who haven't voted yet? Why do they think that Montana shouldnt be heard from in a race that is obviously quite close and competitive and intensely fought. What are they afraid of? Why not let the process play out in the way intended? Could they just be defending the status quo that lets them have power whether Romney wins or Obama wins? I wouldnt be surprised," Mr. Miele says.
"The current primary system was invented to put power in the hands of the people and to take it away from those power brokers in Washington, D.C., and in state capitals. Dont let big media and big government tell you that your vote is irrelevant," he adds. "Vote your own conscience, not for the candidate that Bob Dole and John McCain tell you will win in November. After all, what do they know about winning?"
