Let's check the facts:


A breakdown of the parties in the U.S. House of Representatives. ... 197 Republicans. 232 Democrats. 1 Libertarian. 5 Vacancies *. Live Floor Video. *Hunter (R) ...


As of 2020 there are 26 Republicans and 24 Democrats holding the office of governor in the states. There are 4 Democrats and 1 Republican (one is also a ...



In the 2014 United States Senate elections (the last regularly scheduled elections for class 2 Senate seats), the Republicans won nine seats from the Democrats and gained a majority in the Senate. Republicans defended that majority in 2016 and 2018, and now hold 53 Senate seats.


Cumulative numbers
As of October 2, 2020, Republicans controlled 52.01% of all state legislative seats nationally, while Democrats held 46.77%. Republicans held a majority in 59 chambers, and Democrats held the majority in 39 chambers. One chamber (Alaska House) was sharing power between two parties.[4]

Yes, reps are dying breed. Look at Palm Springs...100 queer political control now. Even the Pope is going for queers.

40% of the USA, so I've been told, favors socialism.

Only a numbskull would say conservatives are flourishing in America.

Yes, we may squeak by with Trump in 2020, but so what. The writing is on the wall. Do you have a plan 'b'?

The constitution doesnt lay out a socialist government. You communists can feel free to move to China.

Do you support the repeal of the 2nd ammendment as well? How about the first? 14th?

This is the same tired nonsense liberals spew every time they get confident. We heard it in 2008 and 2016, that gave us 2010 and Trump. The same thing always happens. Liberals get a little power, liberals abuse that power and go too far. People who voted for liberals grow up and realize those liberal ideas were crap and the Republican party ranks are filled again. The more radical and idiotic the liberal ideas, the more new Republicans they create.

NO but the democratic party is and as fast as the New York Times. It's a race to see which one dies first.

The domination of either party is guaranteed to resurrect the opposing party.
Just like RWer stated that The Next Republican President Hasn't Been Born Yet.

If PROG-think says it's so count it projections and/or opposites. In that respect they're informative.

You mean you dont want to give 70% of your income to the government?

Isnt it interesting that rich liberals like Bill Gates dont give their money to the government, but instewd set up charities? Why dont they trust the government to spend their money effectively?

Bill Gates and his pals won't give a penny to an American.

Sadly, it’s a two party system and anyone they says Party X is dying or dead isn’t to be taken very seriously. Both of these dreadful parties are here to stay.
Oh yeah? Please tell me where this mythical "two party system" is codified. Who founded it and when? Show us a reference or a link to the document. I've already searched the constitution throughly and there's not a word of it there.

I never said it was codified or in the Constitution. What I am staying is that Americans have an unhealthy relationship with the duopoly which means niether party isn’t going away anytime soon.
