political theory

Oregon is in 44th place out of 50 to vote in the primaries next year.

The options will be pretty limited by the time Oregon gets its turn to vote..
May 18th is the date set for Oregon's primary, and 43 other states will have already decided who their presidential pick is before Oregon gets to.

Who will be left standing by then to choose from?

Why do the voters of Oregon allow their leaders to screw them in such a manner?

It appears by the schedule that their are TWO super Tuesday's early in the primary cycle, and the first one is full of conservative states.
