the reason for the parties losing members is because each party has tended to simply go too far!

Nawp. It's because neither party has gone far enough. Neither party has accomplished anything, no meaningful legislation has been passed.
We're still talking about the ACA and it was passed 12 years ago.

Voters have lost faith in either party delivering equitable legislation. Why side with one or the other when neither delivers the goods.

Good coffee, good weed, and time on my hands...
