The only reason the GOP is still around is because third Party candidates get excluded from the Presidential debates & it's very difficult to get 3rd Party candidates on the ballot. This is due to the duopoly wherein both the Ds & Rs agree to legally squeeze out any 3rd Party challengers. I'm fairly sure that if 3rd Party candidates were in the Presidential debates & had easy ballot access, the big government loving, Constitution trashing Establishment part of the GOP would collapse. Instead it appears that the nation will collapse financially before the GOP is reformed or replaced by a 3rd Party. The Democrats will remain the big government, tax & spend Party that wants to "redistribute the wealth".
