After all the "distillation" and debate of policies put to the electorate and party members, will the DNC simply cheat to install their preferred candidate like last time?

Projection at its most obvious.

Yes, because marching in lock-step behind a leader is so much better than a forum of ideas and policy.

 

I am curious to see who the Dems choose from a menu which ranges from Republican-lite to social democracy.

I agree the U.S. right in the age of "trump" is too far right. The republicans are basically a VERY far right wing white nationalist party, almost 100 percent. It's shocking and tragic that such EXTREMISTS now control the white house,  senate, supreme court and nearing massive dominance in the judiciary. In other words, they are almost in TOTAL POWER in the U.S. Far right wing white nationalist extremists. Let that tragedy sink in. 

 

The democrats though if you are being honest are a majority CENTRIST or left CENTRIST at best. This congressional "squad" indeed are further left than that but hardly off the charts left. It is FOUR people. Four people. The "trump" supporting republicans -- almost all of them now. 

 

How exactly are centrists (which actually reflect a solid majority of actual American people) supposed to work productively with far right wing white nationalist extremists? I don't have a clue. I think the USA is now majorly screwed. 

Don't fret. It's only bread and circuses for the masses.

Remember back in 2016 when nobody and the main stream media gave Donald Trump a prayer of winning the Presidency?  Remember when everybody thought Hillary had a lock on the Presidency?  Yep, me too.  Make no mistakes, barring election fraud of non-citizens and dead people voting Democrat, Donald Trump will be President again. 
I don't follow your logic.

I make smallish monthly contributions to three different Democrat candidates.

I think the money would be better spent on beer and hookers, at least you would get a result at the end of the day.

"The Squad" and other rabid progressives are ripping the Democratic Party apart to the amusement of conservatives, Republicans, and no doubt Trump himself.  Personally I wish that independents and moderates from both sides of the aisles would get a clue and form a third party as the right is too far right and the left is too far left and neither party looks out for the interests of the average citizen.

 

No small amount of irony that Obama warned of forming a circular firing squad and the brat pack chose the nickname "the squad."

I would like to think that it's gotten past the logic of the one with the most $$$ wins.  I don't think DT spent any ad money on his campaign until a few months before the general election.

 

A sad truth is that the biggest advantage the GOP has is their adversary is the Dems, I won't go into details.

Though I've always found the GOP distasteful, I'm really surprised at how low they let themselves go, I mean allowing their president to defer to Russia and N Korea, insult the military and intelligence agencies?  This is really through the looking glass stuff for those of us who remember what they were in the previous century.  I know the Soviet Union is no more, but it's like the Cold War is still on, and the US is capitulating.  It used to be the liberals who were told "go back to Russia!"

It is important to know who is taking corporate money and from which corporations. Until the money is out of politics, the name of the game is the same - protsitution politics.

 

My easy solution - Public funds of a set amount. Then we can see how the candidates behave following a budget. This would lend insight into their fiscal aptitude.
