65. Political realignment

 

We are in the midst of one. This is poli sci 101 and the theory emerged first in 1955. I forgive you for not having a clue of what I speak off. You should be excited though. The Democrats are going back to the past and becoming a party friendly to business.

This would be the 7th political system and it started to be way obvious in 2008. The process is well underway. You are a conservadem. You essentially won. As to that third party you keep alluding. Either the Rs are going back to 1852, or going away and like physics, politics abhors a vacuum.

I know most partisans have not one clue of how the political system they clam to understand actually works or evolves. But the FDR coalition is in tatters. For the record, a symptom of this is the number of people who have left both parties. Look on the bright side, the business republicans have a new home. When Charles Kock for all intents and purposes endorses HRC we know the process is almost complete.
