No, I agree. A Constitutional Republic needs two viable parties to
work properly. The trouble is, that the devils bargain with the
Southern Strategy has come full circle. What we call Wingnuttery is
actually not the Republican Party nor loyal conservatism. What we now
have in charge of the GOP, are the remnants
of the conquered secessionist ideology of the Old South. Their beef is
with the Constitution itself, or those parts that are either explicit
or have evolved liberally into things like progressive taxation,
separation of church and state, total equality under the law and a
whole host of public laws that insure fairness and accountability, such
as privacy, and laws of God versus those of Men.

The conflict is currently intractable IMO, and who knows what will emerge out of the ashes of the also conquered Conservative Movement.
