Why haven't intelligent Republicans spilit from their joke of a party and formed a new one?
For decades, the only two parties in Canada which stood a chance of election were the Liberals (Democrats) and the Conservatives (Republicans). Today, the Liberals are shut out and the Conservatives no longer exist. Their party merged with the Reform party to create something new. While the Liberals have simply slumped into 3rd place, at best.
I'd say the differences between Canada and the US are trumped by their similarities, and think if the Americans who identify as Republicans but aren't batshit crazy made their own party, they'd stand a fair chance at replacing the current Republican party within a decade.
What say you? Particularly those of you who identify as Republican?
