Desperate Democrats Make New Rule To Enforce Democrat Only Standard.
The Democrats are having a tough time accepting that Trump and the Republicans are doing so well. They will really be in a bind this upcoming midterm election if the Democrats fail to win any seats. But apparently, they are more concerned that Bernie Sanders may try his hand at the Presidential election in 2020. The Democratic National Convention has indirectly expressed their feelings on the issue by putting through a new rule.
“At the time a presidential candidate announces their candidacy publicly, they must publicly affirm that they are a Democrat,” the rule says. “Each candidate pursuing the Democratic nomination shall affirm, in writing, to the National Chairperson of the Democratic National Committee that they: A. are a member of the Democratic Party; B. will accept the Democratic nomination, and C. will run and serve as a member of the Democratic Party.”
The new rule makes it so Sanders will have to commit to being a Democrat. When he usually runs as an Independent.
It seems like the Democrats are afraid of a split ticket. Since Bernie Sanders divided the vote when it came to the Democrats in 2016. But really it is their own fault. The primary was rigged against Sanders and Hillary should not have made it through the primaries because of it. If they had been thinking rationally they would have gone with Sanders, he was polled to have a chance to beat Trump. But with Hillary bankrolling the DNC he was guaranteed to lose.
So the corrupt DNC paved the way for a Trump victory.

The Senator, however, has already found himself an in with the Vermont Democrats who have claimed they would still see him as a Democrat regardless. Mark Longabaugh, senior adviser to Sanders’ 2016 campaign commented on this odd new policy.
“I don’t have any worries that Bernie Sanders could meet the criteria to run as a Democrat in 2020, but it always puzzles me that there are some Democrats who want to do this and promote this,” Longabaugh said. “I scratch my head and ask why they would want to make the party more narrow and more exclusive.”
“We just came off a devastating presidential loss in 2016. It would seem to me the actual impetus would be to expand the Democratic Party. I just, for the life of me, don’t see any motivation for this beyond personal spite,” he added.”
But seeing as the election is not until 2020 that is still enough time for the DNC to sabotage the Democrats again, guaranteeing another Trump win.
