  •  I do think a political duopoly exists (1+ / 0-)

    Neither party can long survive the absence of the other. It would fission in two quickly if we remained with the same Constitution... or that lone party would quickly shove the Constitution out the door to lock itself into a monopoly on power.

    I see Democrats in that scenario as more likely to calve into two or more successor parties. (then back to two).

    I see Republicans more likely to go the single-party route. Everything in their rhetoric, agenda, processes, approach to elections and governance, etc. suggests a much higher comfort zone with authoritarianism.
