Our state motto is "The People Rule," but limited candidate choices and a power-hungry legislative agenda threaten our ability to live out that principle.

Yes, let’s talk about open primaries. The fact that the legislature and business lobby have made ballot petitions almost impossible is a problem. A legislature no longer meaningfully shackled by term limits — and overpopulated with crackpots — is another problem. The electorate — entirely too Trumpified from many indications — is also a problem.
But try we must.
