    I'm at a loss to bring to mind any law that would be violated were the parties to simply do so.

    Again, though, the parties want desperately to maintain the illusion that "the people" have made the final selection, without necessarily always letting that reality play out.

    The party presidential primaries are a relatively new occurrence. Before said that's pretty much what they did, just choose their candidate.

    That's exactly right. They are private organizations and if you are not one of them it is none of your business.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.
