    1. I would be shocked

    If the DNC permitted an acceptable candidate to reach the general election. The dismissal of the fraud lawsuit, albeit on technical grounds, has only emboldened them to be cheaters in every level of government.

    4. Interesting

    Their discussion of democratic party reform vs new party was interesting.  I have gone back and forth many times on this subject.  I do think it would be ideal to reform the party but I don’t think the ruling class will allow it.  Whether or not the democratic party is reformed, the barriers in place to prevent new parties should be taken down.  It’s probably not unreasonable to have some restrictions, but it shouldn’t be as high a bar as it is to get on the ballot.

    5. Good discussion …

    ..up until the end, when they both seemed to be defending Antifa. Sorry, I think those people are counter productive.

    6. With the release of a statement from Nacy Pelosi, one might ask themself

    is Pelosi an Antifa Nazi?  Of course not, but she needs to clarify the difference between Anti-fascism and Antifa.

    Republicans might say, during a campaign, that Pelosi is pro-Nazi because she is against Anti-fascism; therefore, the New Democratic Party is pro-Nazi.  That would point the finger away from Trump, and his supremacy beliefs.

    8. He can only be cheated by the Democrats if he runs as one. Hope he's not that

      9. Amen to that. I agree that the situation requires action on both fronts;

      we need to work on reforming the Dems from within (which is what the Repug led DLC set out to do in the 1980s, and that’s what brought us to today), WHILE building a viable third party that will attract the vast majority of Independents who are disillusioned with both major parties. If we can’t reform the DNC by 2020-which means ditching the superdelegates- he needs to run as a third party candidate, or back someone who is.
