DNC installs a loyaty test

Yes they did. The Democratic National Committee Rules and Bylaws Committee passed a new rule that gives Chair Perez absolute authority to decide if a candidate is loyal to the establishment Party line. The candidate's “public writings and/or public statements [...must] “affirmatively demonstrate that they are faithful to the interests, welfare and success of the Democratic Party of the United States.” It's just one more tactic for the DNC to handpick the corporate Dems they want to represent their Party. It sounds like something Dump would do. This might be the last straw that gets progressives to leave that corrupt and decrepit Party beyond reform or repair. Nah, they'd have to grow a spine first, unlikely.

It seems if progressives ran as independents against both corporate Dems and Repugs they just might win a majority vote. If the last election proved anything, the majority of voters hate both establishment Parties. Dump would still have won had the Repugs put up someone else and he ran as an independent. Unless of course Sanders had run as an independent too. If ever we needed a strong spine that time is now.
