Bernie Sanders, What Are You Even Doing Now?

Closed primaries are a safeguard against ratfucking.

Requiring primary voters to be registered with a party to participate in the primary does not guarantee that no one will register just to try to sway a primary in a troubling direction, but it is a major deterrent which prevents that from happening en masse.

Anyone advocating for open primaries and caucuses while a foreign adversary is meddling in our elections, and the sitting president and his governing party are doing nothing to stop it, does not give a single fuck about the state of our democracy. He only cares about what benefits him personally.

Not exactly news about Bernie Sanders. Just more proof.
