Wait, I thought the Democratic Party was already a socialist party. /sarcasm

Also, socialists already have their own party: https://www.socialistpartyusa.net/

Our system effectively allows for only 2 parties.  3rd parties split the vote on one side and throw the election to the other.  And in a simple-majority voting system, moderates tend not to want to throw their vote away anyway.

When a 3rd party candidate does rise (Anderson, Perot, Nader all come to mind), after they split the vote, the party they "split votes from" generally shifts its platform to absorb those voters.  And the 2 parties resume their duopoly, carefully splitting the voter base right down the middle and distracting people with wedge issues while generally carrying on the work of the donor class.

I would say Bernie's influence on the democrats is being felt.  So is Trump's.

This question demonstrates a lack of understanding of the Democratic party. What you see as socialist, they see as liberal.

Will the Republican party be a white nationalist party, or will they form their own party? This question demonstrates the same naivete.

Better question would be what level of socialist services are Democrats willing to consider. Healthcare, definitely, but what else?

Better question would be what level of tolerance to immigrants are Republicans willing to accept? Where is the line between an immigrant and a native?

I don’t think the scholiasts will form their own party because that would split the (D) party in two, and neither would have a chance to win an election.

A few years ago when Pat Schroeder (sp?) and other dims bailed out of the party, I thought it was because they saw that party becoming a black party.  Well, the dims retained their black lemmings and kept going.

Now this whole socialist bit is not like before ... it is a totally different philosophy.  Having said that, Bernie is the enigma.  An avowed socialist who ran as a dim.  And that sweetheart from the Bronx makes Bernie look like a rich guy with a trophy.  But back to answering the question … it looks to me like it will become a DINO party (gotta keep the name for the sake of legitimacy) and actually become socialist.

- Socialist Democrat Party? - shouldn't there be accurate true representation of what the party is?

If every socialist in America suddenly evaporated (as they should), the Democrat Party would be cut by 75 percent.
