Parties Should Split Apart for the Good of the Country
The Republicans are in quite a situation right now with Donald Trump being the front runner and most likely nominee for the Presidency. The problem, is of course that most of the establishment R's do not like him and don't feel he's qualified to be President. In addition, Ted Cruz is in second place and he's almost as disliked at Donald Trump ! The situation is even worse when you look at the polls and recognize that neither of these candidates is likely to beat the unpopular Hillary Clinton. How could the R's have gotten this so wrong ?
The Democrats have a similar problem as Bernie Sanders is on the heels of Hillary Clinton and his socialist tendencies are starting to tear that party apart. They are not in the pickle the R's are in, but they'll get there eventually.
What to do, what to do ? I have a solution for both parties. Consider your country first. The political party is a tool for helping people to collect candidates that think the way they think. It is not an end unto itself ! No longer does either party represent the ideas of their party members. The massive increase in Independents would also indicate that a lot of people are not happy with either choice because they choose NOT to join either party. The point of both parties no longer exists to help citizens make a decision and their sole purpose seems to be to "out do" each other. Each party needs to split itself apart according to certain principals and ideals that would best serve two separate groups on the left and two separate groups on the right. I would also encourage that one of each party to the right and to the left be more moderate and willing to compromise and start moving forward with fixing the problems and challenges of our society. For the good of the country, split apart. I might also add, that whichever party decides to move forward in such a way is more likely to gain the massive numbers of Independents waiting on the sidelines for sanity to return to the political spectrum. Like me.
