I want my party to be one which can win elections and dominate American politics. If we have wackjobs in our party who think Eric Cantor is too LIBERAL, when he's one of the most conservative members the GOP has in Congress, we are a long way from being that.

The European method has many smaller 'specialist' parties that often have to form coalition governments. In the US, we have formed our coalitions within two broad parties. Both parties by necessity, then, are 'big tent' organizations that are guaranteed to have wackjobs and those that are more and less right/left, big business/populist, etc.
