1iKhanTue 24th Jun 2014 Yep, I'm bringing up politics, but hey its a general discussion thread, so it works. Right now the Republican Party looks more fractured than it has been in years, maybe even since Teddy Roosevelt's time. If you ask me, I'd divide it into 3 different factions of groups trying to make the party more appealing. 1. The group trying to adjust the party's social message for modern times (Marco Rubio, Chris Christie) 2. The Republican establishment trying to compromise more with the Democratic party on fiscal issues, but won't budge on military or social issues. (Dick Cheyney, John McCain) 3. The Tea Party trying to increase the party's appeal by refocusing strongly on the party platform. They seem divided among a. Within this there are the groups of more libertarian minded people who want to refocus mostly on fiscal issues (Rand Paul) b. More far-righters who want to focus on every thing, social, military, and fiscal (Paul Ryan, Ted Cruz) What do you think will become of all this fractioning? Personally, I believe that we may very well see one of them fraction off into a 3rd Party, and we may see the 2016 or 2014 votes split between the Republican Party and this other Party. My guess is we will see many landslide victories for the Democrats. And just for some perspective, I'm personally a libertarian-conservative.
