The problem with political parties is any member can't sway too far away from the party line. They have their way of doing things and they can't change it (as long as their demographic supports this). Instead of toeing the party line, politicians should look for methods that actually address the problem or issue. The examples of this are too numerous, but one example could be "trickle down economics". When a leader adopts a policy of actually solving problems (which they may need to go against the party line), they usually receive high popularity, and rival political parties no longer have a platform.
