There are no parties. There is one ruling class, they pretend to be "on the right" or "on the left" in order to fool us into thinking we've been given a voting choice.
In reality, it doesn't matter which side gets elected, they always obey the same agenda. Bigger government, more debt, less individual freedom. The "left" grows government by increasing the welfare state, the "right" does so by growing the military industrial complex. Both sides always vote together on things like the NDAA, patriot Act, CISPA, etc.
The only issues on which they pretend to disagree, are those which they can use to divide the public, but which have no real effect on their power (such as abortion, gay marriage, prayer in schools, etc).
