I think there will be a "Values" party or maybe even a "Dominionist" party ... because Libertarians, by and large, aren't going to accept the shenanigans of the Religious Right ... ala Barry Goldwater.

good OP and I especially liked this piece of knowledge: "The average U.S. citizen is MORE qualified to dictate the politics of this nation than any group out there!! "
Well-said my friend

S&F for your OP. I think that's two in our mutual history here at ATS. LOL.
I kid, of course.
Obviously there are groundswells against both major parties, and goodness knows it's long overdue.
The entire primary process needs to be reworked. Political parties should be outlawed.
The People should be given the power of referendum, initiative and recall via a Constitutional amendment.
It is important not to let "raw democracy" reign, as history does show us that we are subject to mob mentality and that can perpetuate horrors untold ... however ...
To be told at every National Election that we either have to eat the plate filled with feces or the one with the feces with ground glass in it ... is long overdue.
... and the Democrats day is coming as well ...

Reagan had to deal with a Democrat majority House of Representatives all 8 years.
"Not every idea put forth by our dreamers-perhaps not even a small fraction- are workable, practical or even desirable by the majority."

What about the democratic party collapsing also? Do You think they actually support Your typical blue collar worker anymore? I for one enjoy seeing both parties being destroyed from the inside. The two party system hasn't supported the American people in a long time and thankfully people are waking up to that fact.
