That pretty much covers it. Except of course for the stupidity of people who vote against their own self-interest.
You just described the Democrat party as well.

The question shouldn't be "how is the republican party still around" but why do we still cater to a 2 party system? The ideals of all Americans can not be put into just 2 party's who are absolutely no different from one another.

I'm pretty sure George Washington made a reference to the dangers of a 2 party system in his farewell address. We should probably listen to the man, he might have known a thing or two.
