An outsider on the Republican Party of late
An outsider--a non-partisan third party with a rather huge indictment of the Republican Party in recent years:
"Let's be blunt and acknowledge the biggest threat to the world's biggest economy are the cranks and crazies that have taken over the Republican party. Despite President Obama's goodwill and strong efforts, the national interest there was held hostage by the rise of the extreme Tea Party wing of the Republican Party. There can be few things more alarming in public policy than a political movement which was genuinely prepared to see the government of the United States default on its obligations in order to score a political point." --Australia's deputy Prime Minister and Treasurer, Wayne Swan.
