The GOP has "gone astray", as far as representing "people". They now represent big corporations, and not conservative citizens. (Does that sound democrat?) I do remember the failed attempts of George Wallace and Ross Perot with their American Party/American Patriot Party/ whatever. Third parties don't fare well in this country. But, mark my words, Republicans aren't going to fare very well in Nov 06, and Nov 08, depending on the war situation, which is the great wild card.
If the democraps regain control of either branch of Congress, we can watch millions being spent on impeachment and repeal of the tax cuts accompanied by social program expansion designed to guarantee that less than fifty percent of the people pay the taxes while more than fifty percent get a dole of one kind or another. And we can forget about constuctionists on the subpreme court and throughout the federal court system. And you want to talk about illegals and porous borders along with impotence in dealing with worldwide terrorism and Islamism?
