I wonder what a second republican party, made up of these people, would be called?
They could always resurrect the Whig Party (although with Trump in charge, they could drop the "h").
I was not familiar with the history of Whig so I had to research, apparently there is the 'old school' history and now the 'modern' version with a new symbol, the all seeing Owl. The Owl is an Occult, freemasonic symbol, unlike the current elephant or donkey. In the original Whig, these people were anti masonic, so what happened with the new modern party, founded 2007? Are they now occultist?
This would explain why 2008, these nut jobs came out of the woodwork in anticipation of the first black president and modern gay civil rights movement. ""Immediately after the election of November 4, 2008, a push began to attract moderate and conservative Democrats, and members of the Republican Party (GOP) who felt disenchanted with both the GOP's failings and its perception as moving further to the right""
I agree, if the party splits, the Modern Whig would be appropriate. They must be forming a 'new religion' as well because the Owl holds spiritual, dark side powers
Modern Whig Partyhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Modern_Whig_Party
The Modern Whig Party is an American political movement whose stated intention is to be a "party for all of us." Founded by military veterans in 2009, the party describes itself as a mainstream, middle-of-the-road grassroots movement representing voters who do not strictly accept Republican and Democratic dogma.
The general platform of the Modern Whig Party relates to fiscal responsibility, strong national defense, and integrity and pragmatism in government. Members of the party have won a handful of local elections, either under other party labels or as independents. In recent years the party has not nominated candidates for any major office. The Modern Whig Party underwent a major overhaul of its structure and leadership in late 2014 and re-launched in the spring of 2015.
Whig Party (United States)
The Whig Party was a political party active in the middle of the 19th century in the United States of America. Many of the early Presidents of the United States were members of the Whig Party. Along with the rival Democratic Party, it was central to the Second Party System from the early 1830s to the mid-1850s. It formed in opposition to the policies of President Andrew Jackson (in office 1829–37) and his Democratic Party. In particular, the Whigs supported the supremacy of Congress over the Presidency and favored a program of modernization, banking and economic protectionism to stimulate manufacturing. It appealed to entrepreneurs and planters, but had little appeal to farmers or unskilled workers.
It included many active Protestants, and voiced a moralistic opposition to the Jacksonian Indian removal policies. The "Whig" name was chosen to echo the American Whigs of 1776, who fought for independence. "Whig" meant opposing tyranny. Historian Frank Towers has specified a deep ideological divide:
Democrats stood for the 'sovereignty of the people' as expressed in popular demonstrations, constitutional conventions, and majority rule as a general principle of governing, whereas Whigs advocated the rule of law, written and unchanging constitutions, and protections for minority interests against majority tyranny.
The Whig Party nominated for president such national political luminaries as Daniel Webster and their preeminent leader, Henry Clay of Kentucky. The Whig Party also nominated for president war-hero generals William Henry Harrison (in 1840), Zachary Taylor (in 184
, and Winfield Scott (in 1852). In its two decades of existence, the Whig Party had two of its candidates, William Henry Harrison and Zachary Taylor, elected President. Both died in office. John Tyler succeeded to the Presidency after Harrison's death in 1841, but he was expelled from the party. Millard Fillmore, who became President after Taylor's death in 1850, was the last president under the Whig label.
The party self-destructed because of the internal tension over the expansion of slavery to the territories. With deep fissures in the party on this question, the anti-slavery faction prevented the nomination for a full-term of its own incumbent, President Fillmore, in the 1852 presidential election; instead, the party nominated General Winfield Scott. Most Whig Party leaders eventually quit politics (as Abraham Lincoln did temporarily) or changed parties. The northern voter-base mostly gravitated to the new Republican Party. By the 1856 presidential election, the Whig Party had become defunct. The Constitutional Union Party enjoyed a moderate measure of success from conservative former Whigs (particularly in the Upper South) in the 1860 presidential election. In the South the party vanished, but Whig ideology as a policy orientation persisted for decades and played a major role in shaping the modernizing policies of the state governments during Reconstruction
