Republicans are more lockstep in their salutes to big business.
Republicans almost without exception block any legislation that would seek to mitigate climate change/global warming chaos.
Republicans are more naked in their prejudices against women's rights, Black Lives Matter, and the rights of Latinos.
At the Presidential level, whomever is given the keys to the Oval Office serves the same Dark Money/Dark Power Interests. That's where the "fusion Zone" most notably exists (that morphs both parties into an allegiance to "Special Interests" = those with $ and power).
You will find more diversity among Democratic Congressmen and women, and Democratic Senators whereas Republicans, almost to the last one standing, will all close ranks in support of the most odious of policies.
So there is a LOT of difference in the Senate and Congress (not in the Presidency or much of the cabinet appointments who tend to be individuals vetted by the Deep State and already having proven their loyalties to those covert entities).
As Mr. Atcheson has pointed out (and I've done likewise often in the past), so long as Big Money owns all operations and controls the metrics of who can be seen and heard in media--along with who can fund the high costs of media advertising--it will support those persons on "either side of the political aisle" prepared to do its bidding.
The system has been purchased.
Lobbyists were not always this thick and dense in Washington.
Before Clinton signed away the Fairness Doctrine, 5-6 major broadcast corporations were not positioned to define and control 90% of the "news" and "culture" that the majority of citizens read, hear, and see.
Prior to Citizens United there were efforts made to thwart the purchase of politicians and lawmakers.
Prior to the 911 false flag and the ensuing lock-down cum War on Terror, academics spoke up. There was far less fear of being punished for showing anything less than deference to the maniacal new War State.
In addition, income gaps were not this vast until the two shocks--NAFTA (and its decimation of unions, staple of the Middle Class) and the stock market crash of 2008--from the Shock Doctrine reverberated far and wide.
These things happened by Gradual Accommodation.
Until the poison fruit of NAFTA emerged, people didn't realize what was at stake. (Some did, like Ross Perot).
Until the poison fruit of the eviscerated Glass Steagall Act showed up, people didn't realize what economic repercussions would follow. (Although some did, and as usual, the critics were silenced.)
Until the poison fruit of a captured mass media showed up (with Fox and others LYING to make a case FOR War of Aggression), the fallout of this form of Pravda like mind control was not understood.
People are a product of the culture and times in which they find themselves.
Blaming individuals for attempting to stay afloat in toxic currents, rather than taking aim at those POISONING the waters is a very strange approach. I believe it's a Talking Point akin to the ones hot off the Koch Brothers' think tank presses that insist that the Black community has no initiative (rather than no jobs); or that public schools are failing (once they're under-funded to produce that outcome), or that terrorists are destroying the world (after the War On Terror created them and that very outcome), etc.
These are inverted narratives used to prop up the Inverted Totalitarian System in which we--meaning most citizens of most nations--live.
