Oh, agree 100%. I've been having a double worry. The GOP falling apart, and the DNC corrupting beyond recognition in the absence of opposition.Candidly, I'd love to see them destroyed, annihilated, obliterated in the next election.
However, in the (wider) interests of democracy, and the public good, a second "party" or political group that can offer some form of legal, legitimate (and yes, yet coherent) opposition is necessary.
In Europe, the GOP and DNC would be 5-6 separate parties. The concern is really how would a system that is designed for 2 opposing parties tolerate the conversion to a many-party system. If you think about it, the DNC has Manchin and Sanders (I know he's kinda independent). How can you come up with a platform that renders these two guys compatible?! You can't.I think we should have the current Democratic Party and then something to the left of it. Joe Manchin and the other right-leaning Dems can stay in the party, and the moderate republicans might come in too. The GOP is so far to the right, they are approaching fascism.
