I personally doubt that the multiparty system is any better since you're just dividing up people into even more groups and creating less consensus on issues, and no one wants a one party system, which will happen if the Democrats keep tripling down and alienating independents.

A multiparty system doesn't create less consensus, because that consensus is not there in the first place. The two-party system creates artificial consensus and requires you to support things you don't agree with when they're presented alongside more important things you do.

A multiparty system (at least in its ideal form) allows you to vote for the parties that address specifically the issues that you feel are important; combined with a decent voting system (i.e. not FPTP) it means you vote more for ideas than for people.

Yeah, if you want to really see how bad a dual party system fucks over everyone, just look at the never trumper republicans, or the bernie bros.
It just fucks everyone.
