I truthfully ask this

Can someone explain to me why we can't have a national presidental primary election day where all states vote versus all the states pushing theirs earlier to one-up each other and "matter more"?

While we're at it, can someone explain why a flat tax won't work too?

And I'm being totally serious with these questions. If you can answer them in a non-partisan manner, I would really appreciate the response.

I would also like to see answers to these questions, as by my logic they are much more efficient and legitimate for a national poll than the current one-upsmanship that goes on today. I would only like to add a subquestion to your first inquiry:

Why can we not have a national holiday for election day?

With work being a fundamental reason for a large number of people missing their chance to cast their ballot, it would seem logical to have the polling day be a federal holiday. It would also help separate the lazy from the overworked. Since we could never please the electorate by moving the elections to the weekends like many countries, we could at least offer up a day where work would not be an excuse.
