66. Or the other issue
Allowing newly minted,inexperienced active Dems to be given help in running for congress or the US Senate who have no loyalty to the Dem party and very little history or background by which we can determine their political record.

This should teach us how incredibly dangerous it can be to let novices appear out of nowhere, raise lots of money online, get lots of support, then suddenly turn and become highly destructive to the party and its candidates when things don't go their way.

I'm all for opening up the system to create a Dem "farm team", but not allowing dark horse candidates to gain prominence in major races who we don't know or trust.
