The U. S. Republican party is one of the two main political parties available to US voters.
“It should have been evident to clear-eyed observers that the Republican Party is becoming less and less like a traditional political party in a representative democracy and becoming more like an apocalyptic cult, or one of the intensely ideological authoritarian parties of 20th century Europe.”
Mike Lofgren (3 September 2011) Goodbye to All That: Reflections of a GOP Operative Who Left the Cult 
Gary Allen wrote in Richard Nixon: The Man Behind The Mask in 1971 that "The fact is that the Republican party is now little more than a name. America's two-party system has quietly been replaced by the virtual dictatorship of an "invisible government."
