Republican Senator Chuck Hagel thinks a new third party might be useful.
I've got to say - I agree. Traditional Republican values seem well and good - folks like Lincoln and Roosevelt. But this modern "anti-abortion anti-gay stick our nose into your business and tap your phones without warrants" Republican Party needs to break itself up, decide what is its real values, and then go for that.
And maybe the same could be done to the Democrats when they start ignoring what's good for the people. In fact, I'd like to see 6 or 7 different viable political parties. Anyone have a good idea on what other parties they'd like to see get equal time in our politics?
