Just something for the Democrats to consider the next time they contemplate disenfranchising people.
To briefly recap, in 2008 the primary votes from Michigan were discounted by half or something in response to Michigan's breaking the Democratic rules.
This is not disenfranchisement. Your vote is only "franchised" for the election in November. The selection of a party's candidate is internal party business.
After all, the national conventions were invented so that party bosses, (who were elected in their home towns), could get together and decide who the nominee was. There were no primaries. Nobody's vote is guaranteed, because primaries are not public elections. They are internal exercises of the political parties.
Heck, I could start the Blickers Party, appoint myself Party Dictator-For-Life and decide to multiply the primary votes, (assuming I could get anyone to actually join the party), by their state's alphabetical position. So primary votes from Alabama would be multiplied by one, primary votes from California would be multiplied by 3, and primary votes from Wyoming would be multiplied by 23. It would all be perfectly legal.
