What Would You Do To Save The Republican Party?
The Politix Update column above opines that the Republican Party is intent on destroying itself. Okay, that’s the problem. What’s the solution?
If you believe that there must be at least two viable national political parties for the American version of participatory democracy to work, let alone thrive, then the Republican Party must be saved from itself. But how to do so?
Is the time ripe for a third party, either moderate refugees from today’s extremist GOP who want to rebuild the Party of Lincoln in a 21st century context or a party for extremists who no longer are welcome in the GOP?
Or must the party, as fractured as it has become, remain whole no matter the cost?
Your suggestions — the more comprehensive the better, with an explanation as to why you recommend a particular course of action — are welcome.
