@Bill- I'd appreciate it if you would do two things- first, read Louisiana's so-called 'jungle primary' law and then compare it to what is written in the open primary initiative and report back to the readership. If you're honest, you'll see some amazing differences. Second, when you're reading the open primary initiative, pay special attention to the Level Playing Field section. It addresses the need to for all qualifiers for candidacy to be the same, hence the name LEVEL PLAYING FIELD.
As to your assertion that independents need to be advised that they can vote in either party's primary election, I'm fairly certain they understand this and it is no comfort to them. To say that party candidates should be the only candidates is extremely limited thinking.
Looking forward to your report!10 months ago
