I understand in my state that, as an unaffiliated register voter, I am not eligible to vote in the primaries. My question is why, and who came up with this archaic system? There are certain democrats, and certain republicans, that I do support, but cannot control who gets to the general election because I refuse to take part in our nation's bipartisan system. Why, in 2008, is our voting system still so obsessed with only two parties?

I agree with you 100%. In my state of Minnesota, we have a lot of independent thinking voters, but they belong to a party otherwise they can't vote in a primary. However, the voters here are much more independent then on the national level. Another situation that needs to be fixed (and it probably won't) is when there are primaries, and a Republican can vote for a Democratic (or visa versa). Long live Jesse Ventura.
