The original Democratic party was used to control the American Black population and other minorities including religious then swerved over to join the formation of worker’s unions (even government employee unions, in other words government employees for the most part belong to two unions, their employees union and the government which is also a supporting union). They moved toward progressive to increase their membership promising high wages for less work via the unions and government agencies. They did not tolerate and still do not support right to work but instead support group adhesion or pay to work.
Money represents their belief of a persons qualification, the more a person can contribute the more they are recognized.
Progressive becomes socialist usually starting rightly to help the elderly, handicapped, ill and poor but quickly becomes a talking point for votes where they try to force the population to contribute to the welfare or share the wealth with their perceived voters. Socialism cannot support itself so in time the cost creates a serious loss of the middle class as their cost to live increases and their income stagnates or drops; while at the same time the government people and the wealthy become even more wealthy. Socialism does not produce anything except higher cost of living and in time the money will dry up because people or workers will soon get tired of working for nothing when they are not allowed to keep anymore of their money than those not working at all or are part-time receive.
Normally at this time the fringe communist party disappears only to surface quietly in the socialist party. This leads to a massive government and the removal of the rights that the people have been accustom to, it’s a very slow process starting back as far as the 1962 Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev who promised to bury Capitalism in American from the inside; assuming he meant the government.
What normally follows is an up-rising of the workers along with the anger of the people who have been receiving free handouts in some cases for all of their lives and who can no longer get these handouts join to overthrow of the existing government, the time table of this is reliant on the amount of capitalism that is allowed to stay, such as it is, in force (China is an example because Hong Kong was returned to them, that economy is carrying China along with the bad US policy and it will continue to carry them until they decide that it is time to kill the golden goose “which they will” and the US policy changes. This could mean war or absorption of its neighbors.)
The original Republican Party was formed to assist business and factory owners and naturally went out to end slavery because slaves were not paid for their work which did not benefit the north but did the south, one was mostly manufacturing and the other large plantations. This imbalance along with the agreement that slaves could only be counted as ¾ each instead of one each in the census that determined the number of representatives from each State in the US Congress set the country’s coarse toward civil war.
The Republicans embraced Capitalism but not necessarily workers which contributed to the formation of unions in the US. This made unions necessary but a union is progressive and socialist by nature so in time they will become top heavy and fail.
Many republicans favored progressive ideas and in time leaned toward socialism, this allowed the progressive party to push through many rules and laws that hurt the American workers. This came about because they were much more interested in staying in office rather than working for Capitalism and the American people.
This year everybody can see the cure of the Republican Party because of the Republican Primary that was just completed, seventeen people running and a businessman coming out on top.
We are still waiting to see if the Democratic Party chooses to correct their socialist problems which are turning quickly toward Communism.
It is evident from history that Socialism/communism always runs out of money to support themselves then need to strip its people of their belongings and after that they find it necessary to attack their neighbors in an attempt to resupply their cash reserves (once again China and Russia). This creates wars.
Capitalist governments rarely attack their neighbors except possibly through trade deals.
