View Diary: Herman Cain says conservatives need a third party (202 comments)

Comment Preferences

  •  The Republican Party will go the way of the Whigs (6+ / 0-)

    The right to lifers and racists will splinter off and try to form a third party, and the fiscal conservative / strong defense  /  socially more progressive wing of the party will forge on, attempting to pick up independents to make up the losses experienced when their anchor constituencies bail out.  

    It will take them years to rebuild their numbers, but there will be two parties again. In the interim, the Democratic Party will hold sway.  Most of the fighting will be intramural, like when we have to nominate someone in 2016.   Hillary won't be progressive enough for most kossacks.   That field is wide open.
