3 parties

Our democracy works best with two parties. However, at this time there are three parties: Democrats, Republicans and Republican’ts (known as Tea Party or Freedom Caucus). During the Obama years, the Republicans and the Republican’ts acted in unison to oppose everything that Obama tried to do. Now that the Republicans control the White House, the Republicans cannot govern without some assistance either from the Democrats or the Republican’ts, and the Republican’ts are still in opposition to everything.
