the two party system is broken, and has been for a long time. The growing number of Independents in this country is proof enough of that. Elections have become less about who will do a better job, and more about who you are least afraid of. The ability to spend more money than the other guy is also part of the problem. Fundraising limits are pointless when all it takes is the formation of a “Super PAC” to get around them.
The Republican Party you used to know doesn’t exist anymore, and neither does the Democrat Party you used to be against.
