John Fremont to Donald Trump, Lifespan of the Republican Party

Back in 1854 a group of people decided to create a new political party. They arrived at the name, Republican. Two years later, they selected their first candidate to vie for the Presidency. Their man was John Charles Fremont.

For the record, Fremont did not win. Both Fremont and Know Nothing candidate Millard Fillmore (who was also the last Whig President) lost to James Buchanan, who served one term.

We now find ourselves 154 years later and it seems that the Republican Party of yore, may now be exiting. This is a result of many things, including The Tea Party, and a mostly hypocritical group of women and men taken with dividing the nation through Skullduggery (among other things).

This has culminated with the antics of still President Donald J Trump. A person incapable of even acknowledging that he might well have lost. A person who has vowed to fight tooth and nail and never concede.

Is it possible that in regrouping, along with the can't-happen -soon-enough expiration of a certain Kentucky Senator and a booze infused self-demolition of a certain South Carolina Senator, will continue under the banner of Republican or will they instead, choose a more noble route and find a new name and agenda?

@Sturgis,
perhaps we should swap names and return to our past namesakes missions.

do this every 100 years or so.
