As the Republican field turns into even more of a reality television show, the Bernie or Bust movement has picked up steam over the past month or so as well.

So here we are, and in this primary season it seems the only way to surely keep parties intact is to back the anti-establishment candidates. Yet, the party elites cling to their power...but in time it seems they will lose the war in the near future, regardless of the outcome of this battle.

The GOP will be fine once this election season ends. It was Donald Trump who poisoned the waters; if he never entered it would've been a mundane, civil GOP race.

The democratic party is always one shouting lunatic short of fracturing. We have been on a great run, getting our collective house in-order after the backlash of the 70's, and it may break into crazy again, however, I don't think this split will break anything. I don't think Sanders will run as an independent. I don't think we will bicker at our convention.

I may be (and am) completely frustrated with Clinton. I am on the fence if I will vote that spot at all. I WILL show up to support all the other Democrats running that I can vote for.

The GOP has been imploding for a long time. This will hopefully be the catalyst to finally spark its reformation and rebirth.
