The Whig party collapsed in the mid-19th century because they couldn't agree on the issue of slavery. Do you think that a major political party will collapse in a similar way over an issue within the next 50 years?

I think that the GOP could collapse if the progressives in the party cling to power instead of switching parties.
And I would welcome that, personally. We could finally get the cancer (progressives) out of the party.

Progressives in the GOP? That's a laugh.

The parties seem pretty united, don't u think? I mean dems and repubs are getting along worse than ever, but I don't see any intra-party conflicts splitting any party up. Did u have an issue in mind with the Q?

The Tea Party and the establishment Republicans seem to be disagreeing more and more lately.

The democrats have stuck through it with Obamacare and same sex marriage. The repuicans have stuck through it with the opposite. It would be something small.

No. They both have a stranglehold and a complicit media to maintain their dominance.

I really wish all parties would be abolished.

No. I think I know what you're alluding to and it will never happen. The Grand Old Party is here to stay.

At this point, the two parties are too entrenched. Whether or not a multiparty system is better than a 2 party system, I don't see that happening here, especially with the electoral college and the fact we use first last the post

This is what it was supposed to say: at this point, the two parties are too entrenched. Whether or not a multiparty system (by which I mean 3+ major parties) is better than a 2 party system, I don't see it happening in the us, especially with the electoral college and the fact we use fort past the post

I hope so. Parties seem to get in the way of democracy.

We don't have a democracy.
