Jr High Drop Out

The Ascendant Left

The GOP is steadily losing their voice. Not only have they lost control of every branch of government, but their own base is losing faith in their vision and their ability to realize that vision. Donald Trump may well have kickstarted the death spiral of his own party. While I'm liberal (though not a Democrat), I think this is bad for us all. Democrats need a counterbalance. In an ideal world, we'd see a multiparty system spring up by moving to a ranked choice or similar voting model at the state level. Barring that, we need a strong opposition party. The Left without opposition becomes the party of AOC and Bernie Sanders and, bluntly, that's not good. We need moderate voices in the conversation and moderation only exists when there's a need to counterbalance extremity.
