DNC Writes New Rule To Exclude Bernie Sanders From Dem Ticket!

A new rule adopted by the Democratic National Committee will block Bernie Sanders and other political outsiders from seeking the Democratic Party’s nomination in the 2020 presidential election.

They will require all Democratic Party candidates to declare themself a Democrat to be considered for the Democratic ticket.  Bernie is an Independent, and a bit too far left for most Democrats, so this new rule should keep Sanders from causing a rift in the party up like he did with Hillary in 2016.

(What? I thought the Russians were to blame for Hillary's loss!)

Sanders' campaign manager, Jeff Weavers said:

“[Bernie] is considering another run for the presidency and when the time comes I think we'll have an answer for that. But right now he's still considering it.”

Bernie an "independent"?

Perhaps that's what he wanted people to think, because the Democratic Party is not socialistic enough for him, but, how often did he oppose any Democratic policy or proposed law?

If I was Bernie, I'd say I was a Democrat.

A similar thing worked for Trump didn't it?

Bernie is so far to the left even the Democrats try to distance themselves from him.  And Bernie is so far to the left he can't with a good conscious call himself a Democrat. Instead, he self-identifies as a "Socialist":

"I am not now, nor have I ever been, a liberal Democrat... Socialist is the political and economic philosophy I hold."

Democrat's desire to keep him out of the Party is understandable for 3 reasons:

He could never win an election.

He's principled, and not subject to Deep State manipulation.

He is anti-war.

Bottom line:   Bernie is useless to the DNC.

Bernie has principles all right, but they are the wrong ones.

In his long lifetime, I bet there was never a Communist War of "Liberation" that he didn't love.
I'm not buying Bernie as anti war. He's anti-American and therefore against the U.S. even defending ourselves.

I was actually what might be called (by Hillary) a "basket of usurpers.  People who did not understand that Hillary was entitled to be the next president for propping up Bill all those years and for playing nice with Obama after he usurped her in 2008.  That's the part that gets Hillary the most.  She's like, how can they not get this?  I was such a good sport to let Obama cut in line, but now it's my turn dammit!

The usurpers eo include Bernie Sanders, but also in the basket are James Comey, the Russians, Fox News (what's wrong with those guys?  the rest of the media certainly understood what Hillary was due), and of course Trump himself in collusion with the Russians.

If the DNC really does only allow Dems to be nominated, then DNC could lose tens of millions of votes from independents and third party members.

I'm pretty sure those votes have already been lost.

I hope they'll consider John Allison...

Jeff, I meant the votes from very minor parties that aren't the Green Party, Libertarian Party, Socialism and Liberation & Peace and Freedom Party, Justice Party, Reform Party, Pirate Party, or Constitution Party.

Well, add them up.

Those are the people opposing the TwoParties...

Illegal immigrants should form a party! They oppose the TwoParties too! Smiley

Edit: In the interests of maximizing factionalism,
I think the queers should form their own political party too, because the Two Parties might decide to kill them all or sterilize them, so they should join the coalition against TwoParty rule.
