Fact The two major U. The parties changed over time as platform planks, party leaders, factions, and voter bases essentially switched between parties. Today it is the opposite in many respects. Below we cover the details of what changes occurred and what they mean in context… and explain the history of the Democratic and Republican party in the process.
This ends with Jackson vs.
Adams where the parties switch back to a two-party system. The tensions break the two parties into a number of factionssome of which take their single-voter issues party planks with them like Know-Nothings and Free-Soilersbut the general two-party system and the ideologies of those parties is otherwise retained.
This ends with the rise of Progressivism where the Democrats begin to become increasingly progressive under figures like Bryan despite their conservative factions.
This party system really sets the modern struggle of free-enterprise gilded age factions vs. Starting in this era the Great Migration begins and this changes both parties by changing the location of a future geographic voter base once Voting Rights happens.

Very real factors divide us in very real ways in any era, but electoral-based maps and even county-maps can be misleading as they only show majorities. Keeping in mind we today are new generation. In Charlottesville we saw the Dixie battle flag of the Southern Democrats being waved by Republican Trump voters who were standing up to protect the statue of the Southern Democrat rebel army leader General Lee.
Meanwhile, the progressive American liberal-ish antifascists marched against these groups with the progressive social justice movement Black Lives Matter in abolitionist spirit. In the old days all those factions were in the Democratic party except the old Progressives of Republican party who would have marched with MLK, voted for Teddy, or stood with Hamilton or Lincoln, and the Know-Nothings who have always been Republican, Whig, Federalist, or Third Party.
Today the socially conservative factions generally vote Republican and the progressive factions generally vote for the Democratic party. So yes, Thurmond and Goldwater are fine places to look, but is as fine as any other place. History is complex enough without twisting the story of the South and the progressive factions into a modern pretzel.
Some factions have always been for small government, some for big government, the parties and times changed and the factions changed along with them, all of this is interconnected.
Also party loyalty is a factor. Add to that the fact that some of those interests change, and we have a rather complex situation. Consider also, Martin Luther King Jr. We are talking about different factions duking it out district-by-district, not cartoon characters.

The flag of the Southern Democrats is now flown by the southern Republican. That is a big hint when all else fails to sway someone. Both are right-wing populistsbut one is a southern populist and used to be Democrat, the other is a northern anti-immigrant populist who allies with elitist pro-business conservatives and was always of the Republican line.
They are very different types of Americans, only united on some social issues, and they actually used to be on different teams, even though today we may think of both as Republican Tea Party voters.
