Certainly not as they're currently constituted.

The most astute observation I've heard in recent years about this subject came from a human resources expert at an industry conference I attended. He said the problem with today's political process in the U.S. is that the two major parties are aligned in a way that made sense 40+ years ago when we were an industrial economy, but don't make sense anymore. Now, you have an upside-down scenario where the Democrats are the war-mongering corporate globalists and the Republicans -- only by default, not by principle -- have become more of a nationalist/populist party.

I'd generally agree with your colleague's observation. You only need to go back to 2015 to see how the war mongering corporate globalist faction unleashed financial war on the State of Indiana for being the first to pass a religious freedom exception bill to allow Christian businesses to opt out of demands by the sexual deviant crowd's demands to join them in the celebration of perversity.

Indiana and every other state contemplating such legislation ended up watering it down to the point that it became nearly meaningless. The Country Club/Corporate war-monger class is drifting over to the Democrat party if they can't staunch the Populist/Trumpian rise.

Neither party has any core beliefs. They never really have. Their belief is the party. Increase the power of the party. They have a base they pander to for those core votes, but it’s lip service.
