Follow the money. It surprises me, 40 years after Watergate, that there are so many people who still don't get it. It's not about political ideology or theory. So, quit following the campaign talking points and witless talking heads. There's no difference between the two parties because the core agenda is always the same; power and money. If the other guy's idea is good for stealing stuff, then they're for it. Most of what's destroyed and continues to destroy the country is done by bipartisan agreement, with some fighting over who controls how much of what business (as usual) "concession." They use different spin. They lie sometimes to pretend to be different. But in the end, they'll be telling us we want "leadership" (to ignore what we want and drive the agenda) and less "partisan bickering" (so they can agree to things they were elected to oppose) so they can "get things done" (that they shouldn't be doing). The "compromises" might work out some final tuning re: who controls how much of what business (as usual) "concession." It's not government as conceived by the Constitution. It's just organized crime or the ordinary sort trying to pretend to be something else.
Correlation does not prove causality!
