  •  I absolutely believe the Evangelicals should (4+ / 0-)

    form their own political party... The Christian Repulican Party (like European Christian Democrats).

    Similarly, I believe the Libertarians should split and form their own Libertarian Party leaving the corporate Republicans complete control of their own Businessmans Party.

    Obviously as a Democrat the splitting of the Republican Party appeals to me for strictly electoral reasons. But in reality I heartily approve of the idea of a multi-party system and frankly hope that the long term result would be the splintering of the Democratic Party into its multiple constituent parties also. Pipe dream I know but a multi-party system would be good for us in the long run.

    •  Could work with a better voting system (0+ / 0-)

      There are many alternatives to how we cast and count votes, which would better reflect popular will and allow relatively stable multi-party systems. See the book "Gaming the Vote".
