So you think we should follow a failed model (third party) rather than a politically successful model (liberals taking over the DNC from within)? No thanks.
The difference, and it's a BIG one, is that the Democrat Party has always had liberals in positions of power. Enough to allow them to effect change in party rules that made the liberal takeover possible.

Republicans, OTOH, do everything in their power to shut conservatives out of leadership positions. The Party Platform debate at the last Convention, for example, turned into a conservative purge.

They've made it crystal clear that conservatives are no longer welcome in the Republican Party, and are willing to do whatever it takes to keep them out.

Except to vote.

That's not entirely accurate. It wasn't that long ago when the Democrat party were openly racist, homosexual baiting and had a huge KKK contingent. The Marxists spent time and effort taking over the party, and they have succeeded. There hasn't been an effective third party in the history of our country. The Whigs died before the Republican party was born. I am saying we need to take over the Republican party, not shoot ourselves in the foot by going third party.
