The GOP is a third party. They replaced the Whigs.

After which (not immediately after, mind you, but later on), the Republicans and Democrats came up with ways to tweak the system so that no other third/minor party could upset the two-party apple cart.

Or to put it another way -- if conservatives don't have the numbers and resources to take over the GOP, then they don't have the numbers and resources to take on the GOP and DNC combined.

Yup. Short and well stated. Bears repeating.
