It is a matter of degree, the far left of the democratic party is a small minority and has no real voice in the party.<quoted text>
In all honesty both sides have a fair number of ignorant votes. And in all fairness we need both sides to keep things from spinning off into lunacy either to the right or the left. I think we'd be better off with a third and possibly a forth party with as much clout as the two we currently have. We could also stand to have the ones we've got go through a bit of a maturation process so both sides could sit down like adults and work things out for a change.
Not so with the far right for the Republican party, who are currently vetting every nominee. Rush speaks to them every day, they will only watch Faux news.
3rd party is likely to happen in the next 20 years, the republicans will spin off the Tea Party
But like other 3rd parties I dont expect it will survive.
