Well, I think that America would be better served by four political parties which essentially line up as follows (although this may turn to three, the way things are going):

  1. Progressive/Greens
  2. Traditional Democrats (free market, pro military, populist)
  3. Traditional Republicans (free market, pro military, corporatist)
  4. Libertarian/Freedom Caucus

Although………it seems that the middle two, because of the trauma they apparently experience because of Mr. Trump, may merge into one.

But, you’re right. Unless people have the courage to vote for whoever they wish, without this “you’re handing such and such to the other side”, we’ll never get there. And part of the reason is this high stakes game known as the “Supreme Court Lifetime Appointment” which makes party unity all the more important.
