Sunday/ six political parties, not two

American political commentator, professor, and author Robert Reich posted a thesis on Facebook and Twitter that says America actually has six political parties, and not just two.  So to get any significant legislation done, the Senate and House leaders have to get a coalition of two or more of these ‘inside’ parties to agree.   (For the record, I am an anti-establishment Democrat).

The six ‘parties’ inside the broad categorizations of being Republican or Democrat. Trump and his loyal supporters are in a party of their own, neither Republican nor Democrat (even though Trump is officially Republican).  As with Trump, his supporters want money, power and attention – and they want to get even (whatever ‘even’ even means).  An example of a coalition is shown in pink.
