The Democrat National Committee has announced a big rule change 🤧

But there seems to be some confusion of opinions about just what the "goals and objectives" are.

Some say it's something about the Super-Delegates.

Some say it targets Bernie Sanders !!

What are these tricky Democrats up to now?

Definitely something wicked and sinister I suspect.

DNC Rule Change May Seek To Shut Out Bernie Sanders

The Democratic National Committee adopted a new rule Friday aimed at preventing non-Democrats, such as independent U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, from seeking the party’s 2020 presidential nomination, reports said.

The rule change, adopted at a DNC meeting in Providence, R.I., requires all candidates for the party’s nomination to “run and serve” as Democrats, Yahoo News reported.

Some supporters of Sanders — who caucuses with the Democrats despite declining to declare a party affiliation — say the move was motivated by “spite” after Sanders gave Hillary Clinton a run for her money during the Democratic primaries in 2016.

But a source told Yahoo News it was actually part of a push to limit the power of so-called superdelegates — which, ironically, has long been a goal of Sanders.’

Sanders running as an independent kills any chance that the Democrats have of beating Trump in 2020.

I hope they don't block Bernie out. He does a great job of dividing their base voters and most of the country sees him as the hypocrite living off of the peoples tit his whole life that he is.

Ironically running as a Democrat would probably do the same thing, because they would never let him lead the party. The leaks about the collusion and rigged primaries in 2016 is proof of this.

I think the Dems let him run in 2016 because they wanted him to bring the millennial/college vote into the Democrat fold then hand off the baton to Clinton for the win. I don't think they expected him to get such a populist following and it scared them... so drastic measures were taken. Now it looks like they are taking preemptive action to try and stop him from running again.

I hope he's in there too. To real Patriots, he could end up being one of those gifts that just keeps on giving.

I continue to find it absolutely ASTOUNDING that there were people that actually supported that shrub.

The rule makes sense. Why shouldn't someone be a democrat to win the democratic nomination?

So are there mega delegates just in case the super delegates vote the “wrong way” yet? I mean just because it is called the Democratic National Convention there zero reason to think the process SHOULD be democratic.

Wait.
What ?
They (the DNC) virtually made an Independent named Bernie Sanders run as a Democrat....
So , an Independent running on the Democratic ticket.
So , an Independent HAS to run on the Democratic ticket to run for President ?
?????
Is DWS still running the show behind the scene?

Rule change doesnt make sense to me Bernie ran as a Democrat. So according to their rule they would need to exclude democratic socialists problem is thats a large part of their base. This would litterally be cutting off your nose to spite your face. No party can win now withoit reaching out to independents their numbers have just gotten to big. This is also the reason trump will be reelected.

Sadly no one listens and we will get a second term of the orange potus. Cant make your entire policy how much you hate trump and expect to win.

This is leadership with its fingers on the pulse of its people.

The country shows STRONG tendencies for Independent leanings and the majority of independents share common ground with Democrats,

"So lets shut them out and isolate ourselves" .

Friggin brilliant. Wow.

I think you are overstating the opinion that independent voters primarily lean left. I think most independents are centrists, who try to distance themselves from radicals on both sides.

Frankly, I think the radical liberals scare them more than the right wing nuts.
