I think we shouldn't bail out the republicans because I favor democrats but they are two sides to a quater. You need that second opinion , you need somebody to argue against your case unless it will be a one sided race. The democrats will be enjoyed that they are failing because less competition and less competitors.

THe political party makes us have compettion and we can hear too sides of the people. Without the republican party the government wouldn't survive. Democratic Party wouldn't be shocked at the hearing the crash of the Republican Party, i think they would love to hear that news because they can know take over ehat they want, and everythig thry want in there favor.

No we should not save the party. We should let wahatever happens take its course. No one is ever going to be satisfired therefore it is only fair if they have two side equally arguing. Yes it may get a little hectik and rough during election times, but its is civilied fighting. If there is only one party in charge of the country and one goes away then they will be civil wars and revolts. The other republicans will give the democrats a hard time to run the country.

I believe that we cannot survive without the republican party. Even though some democrats might disagree, but the fact is that sometimes during an issue, the democrats might take advice or think twice from the republicans. The Democratic party will celebrate to the destruction of the Republican party. Democrats will have no fight against the Republicans. There will be just one group with a leader telling their issues and there will be only one side rather than two.

The Democratic party might react in a negative way because you always need an opponent to compete against. There is always another point of view in things, so if the democratic party does not have another party with different views, people might stop supporting it. There are many roles of a political party. They are based in the voice of people. one person with a certain point of view can not do the same amount a group of people believing the same things can.

The GOP should be saved to sustain balance between all three branches of the government.

If the GOP wants to continue to the same policies they have proposed then they deserve to go defunct. Policy shifts have become unavoidable, and that is how the survival of the Republican Party will occur.

Their policies on universal health care, immigration reform, and the environment is key to their survival.

Not all political parties remain forever, but it is up to the voters to decide the future of the Republican Party too.

George Washington's theory is correct that there must be more than one party to have a flawless party system. I think it would be impossible for another party to make anything close to a legitimate run at the other parties because of the overwhelming power they have. I also think that the two party system is okay because the parties disagree on so many issues that are basically two sided. People sometimes forget that you don't pick an issue based on a party, but a party choice can be based on an issue.

I think it is very important for us to have two different political parties. The reason for this is we need something to compete against.Something to make us better. I don't think we can survive without the Republican Party because, they make very good points. The democratic party might be happy with just being withing themselves. But it wouldn't make sense. If there's a democratic party alone, its pointless. Why is there even a party if there's only one party.

The role a political party plays is a way for everyone's ideas to be expressed. People can get together with similar views and needs. Unfortunately, a lot of time the majority's consensus may not be what many American's agree with. I don't believe we can survive without the Republican party, It isn't democracy unless everyone has a voice.

I think we should'nt save the GOP. The government we live in is a democracy where we build it up and make it our own. Many life decisions we make and our country makes are all buisness based and thats how deals are made through money and harsh cuts. So why cant we cut the GOP its not dangerous, some smaller party will rise and take its place.

I agree with Omar when he said "you need someone to argue against your case unless it will be a one sided race." Everyone needs a second opinion at one point in time. If there was only one side with only one opinion to every situation, there will eventually be chaos. The Democrats need the Republicans just as much as the Republicans need the Democrats. They are like Burger King and McDonald's. They can't survive without the other.

I don't believe that bailing out the republicans is a good thing, even though the democrats probably will disagree. Without the republicans there would be no competition, and we need the competition running in order for the political parties to stay stable. If there would be just one party that can have a lot of disagreement, but there would be no other party to challenge them.

If the Republicans fall their will be no balance in the government. No one to tell the other side no if that idea is a bad one. It would be like one person running our country. Both parties need each other to tell the other weather their making the wrong choice. the country needs both to tell us what the other is up to.
