Re: POTUS-DONALD TRUMP-and U.S. Politics catch-all

Three parties is a fantasy. The essential struggle is progressives vs conservatives. A third party only really dilutes one of those. It's daft that, for example, social conservatives have to align with economic conservatives, though. Those things are not the same. A person's views on global warming...
