Must we say if were gay?

I read with interest the article by Jim Larsen, Party declaration required to vote, in the Jan. 16 Whidbey News-Times.
I didnt really know who I should send this to. So this seems like a good place to start. Besides, I would like to know how others feel about this.
The Supreme Court ruled that open primaries are unconstitutional. Well so is asking a person if they are gay.
The entire voting system should be overhauled. There shouldnt be a primary. If someone wants to run for any office, then they should only be required to obtain a certain number of signatures for them to be eligible for that position. There shouldnt be Democrats or Republicans. OMG! Did I really say that? Heaven forbid! All national elections should be done by popular vote from the qualified citizens of this nation. No electorial votes by Congress.
Now I may not always do my part as a natural citizen of this great nation, but I do try to.
Now that we have allowed someone to change the law and require me to declare a party, they have all lost my vote. I vote for the person who I feel is qualified without regard to party.
That right has been taken away from me, so now I wont vote.
