If it doesn’t happen, then it’s a moot point.
But if it’s reduced to only 30%, it’s not electorally viable. That party will disintegrate. Just like the Whigs did.
A party which cannot compete electorally, isn’t going to just continue to exist in any real fashion. You can’t have one of the major parties in our system just crawl along with such a tiny amount of the electorate.
It’s ridiculous to think that everyone in the Democratic party agrees with each other 90% of the time.
We understand that’s not reality, right?
Within the Democratic party, it’s not monolithic. There is a spectrum of different ideas.
Our political system can’t have just one party. If the GOP goes away, you’re gonna get a split. That’s what happens.
At this point I don’t see where this discussion is going. We can just move along, as the point of the thread is actually the notion of center-right ideas, as opposed to the crazy extreme that is the GOP right now.
