    My opinion is that America is ready for that. A third party won't do any good. ( A fart in a whirlwind.) The GOP needs to get back to what it use to be, once upon a time. Before the whacko hijacking.
    I do agree if the GOP got back to say, Eisenhower times, they would pull a lot of voters away from Dems. 1956 Republican platform:
    Provide federal assistance to low-income communities

    Protect Social Security

    Provide asylum for refugees

    Extend minimum wage

    Improve unemployment benefit system so it covers more people

    Strengthen labor laws so workers can more easily join a union

    Assure equal pay for equal work regardless of sex

    Yes, that is when I used to be a proud republican. Back in those days, people pretty much kept their politics to themselves and voiced their support, for whatever party, at the voting booth. Democrats and Republicans both were American first, above all.

    Now, we have the choice of Dumb or Dumber. And I will leave it up to the individual to formulate their own opinion as to which is "Dumber." However, statistics show, by party identification, which is considered "Dumber," by most Americans, at this point and time.

    This whole thread and premise is idiotic because it ignores how conservative ballot measures went down in flames and liberal measures soared. And that's with a low overall turn out and a low democrat turn out. Furthermore, many Republicans had relatively close matches in states that should have been easy wins. A Democrat in several states shouldn't have even been a threat yet both state and national parties threw millions at redder than red states to hold on to seats. The GOP won, but to say that voters rejected liberalism when liberal ballot measures hands down won, GOP seats that should have been safe required millions in spending and with a very sad turn out is asinine.

    Liberalism, no

    Democrats, yes

    Although with fewer than half showing up, what was really rejected was democracy
