Good Afternoon, Dave

re: "I would not do away with primaries - instead I would do away
      with Plurality and leave primaries to any party that still
      saw value in them."

I believe the discussion was more about opening primaries to the public 
than to eliminating them.

re: "I see value in parties - Green, libertarians, socialism,
      etc., let voters with particular desires work together."

Absolutely, but there must also be a way for those who don't subscribe 
to any party to participate in the electoral process.  They have no 
voice at present, and that's the rub.
