Yes, Actual GOP primaries, as in disallowing Democrats to participate in GOP elections such as happens in NH and Iowa. Blue chips, red chips, paper slips, and other assorted childish game-playing will now give way to actual Republicans, and only Republicans voting for the 2012 GOP nomination, and frankly, it’s about frigging time. How ludicrous is it that Democrats can sign in as Independents or an “undeclared voter” in the NH GOP primary, vote in it and then turn around and walk out still an undeclared voter? Obama-sheep are allowed to go in and throw their votes in the NH primary for whoever they feel has the best chance to lose against Obama. Likewise in Iowa, as this article exposes how nonsensical that circus of a media sham has become.
This is from nh.gov on voting in the NH primaries : 3) If you are a registered member of a party, you may change your registration at any primary, however, you will not be allowed to vote in that primary. Undeclared voters may declare a party and vote at any primary. The law allows an undeclared voter to declare a party at the polls, vote the ballot of that party, and then change their party affiliation back to undeclared simply by completing the form available from the Supervisors of the Checklist at the polling place.

The rest of the 2012 GOP Primary/caucus schedule may be viewed here, courtesy of UPI. Up next, on Sat. Jan 21st, 2012 will be the South Carolina primary. Apparently, Democrats can vote in the 2012 GOP Primary elections, but will give up their eligibility to become a National Delegate, as seen at examiner.com:
And since voters are not allowed to partake in the primary races of more than one party, anyone voting in the Republican Presidential Primary on Jan. 21 cannot participate in the vote at their county’s Democratic Party precinct meetings. That lack of vote on March 3 would thus exclude a delegate wannabe.It wouldn’t just affect individuals personally, either; in fact, it could lower the state’s ranking in the order of presidential primary races for 2016.
Next up after S.C. on the 2012 GOP Presidential Primary schedule will be Florida, on the new earlier primary date of Jan. 31st, 2012. Florida is known as what is commonly referred to as a “closed primary” meaning only registered Republicans who had registered by the close of business on Tuesday, Jan.3rd, 2012 will be allowed to vote in the 2012 GOP Presidential primary. Early voting for the Republican primary is scheduled for Jan. 21-28. Times and location vary by county. Please visit the Florida Division of Elections for specific information regarding the county you live in, specific places to vote in the 2012 GOP primaries, and other voting rules. Keep in mind that the Republican National Convention will be held in Tampa, Florida on Aug. 27-30, 2012.
While the media, which heavily promotes the DNC agenda of today, spews opinions about past GOP Primary/Caucus results in relationship to the actual general elections results constantly, they seem to deny the staunch realities of what happened in the 2010 mid-term elections. The 24/7 media coverage of the Iowa and NH early primary/caucus votes are designed to do one simple thing: Nudge people’s perceptions as to what GOP candidate is to be deemed “electable.” Remember that in 2008, Mike Huckabee pulled off an improbable win in the Iowa caucuses? If this was so important at the time, then why did John McCain receive every single one of Iowa’s delegate votes in 2008?
Now the media is once again telling us that South Carolina and Florida should be easy wins for the establishment GOP nominee, Mr. Willard Romney, based on… his “historic” wins in NH and Iowa. Will the voters once again be led by the nose to vote for Mitt Romney by the multi-million dollar media blitz, or will they make a stand and vote for someone who has actually cut the size and scope of government and has shown the political aptitude to wipe the floor with Barack Hussein Obama in the 2012 Presidential debates? Newt Gingrich certainly qualifies. So does Texas Governor Rick Perry, except for his difficulties expressing his stances on the issues at times. Jon Huntsman has inched forward lately… in the Liberal Northeast region of America. South Carolina and Florida are political light years away from the mainly Liberal Northeastern U.S. So is Iowa for that matter. Only time will tell who will win in the actual 2012 GOP primaries of South Carolina and Florida, no matter what the media and big money political operatives tell us. Get informed, get involved.
