    MONEY.   Most Democrats have little money and are ok with that.  They do not mind working as long as they think they are being treated fairly.  Democrats want to improve things .. healthcare, pay for workers, voting equality for all citizens.  And jobs.  They oppose exporting jobs to 3rd world countries.

    Republicans fall into 2 categories ..  Type1 are Rich and manipulative.  They want more money.  They never have enough and will do anything for more money -- Like Trump and his biggest scam, Trump University.  Type2 Republicans are those who are easiy brainwashed,  They believe 1) in no abortion even if it kills the woman. 2) in guns for everyone -- even the unstable.  3) racism -- they are against anyone who is not white (at one point this was extended to being blonde with blue eyes) and want to deport every black and brown person. Yes, they are the ultimate racists. -- Take away 'their' voting rights.

     ===  Type1 Republicans are the politicians, the leaders of the party.  They give speeches to manipulate (brainwash) the Type2 into believing the BS in their speech.   --- Type1 are not against abortion, but will lie and say they are to pacify the weak-minded Type2 and get their votes.  Similarly for guns.  They don't care about guns, but they get millions from NRA members to keep up the front.  ---  They also call "Mexicans" rapists, thieves. etc to pacify the racists -- and get their votes.  When blacks make any stand for equality they automatically make speeches against this behavior -- guess why..  -- They are against universal healthcare because (the rich rarely work) they look at workers like cogs in a machine.  If "it" breaks then throw it away and replace it -- they see no need for 'repairs'.  ===  Type2 vastly outnumber Type1, but they are followers.  They will never rebel against the MASTER.

    They've always been at odds with one another.  Their parties want different things, and see the country moving in different directions.  There's many things they could agree on and accomplish, IF they didn't always try to insert unreasonable and/or unrelated items (from their wish lists) into bills they were trying to pass.

    Grandma, (survival of Hoover’s Depression) always said: republicans are for the rich and democrats are for the rest of us. True then, even truer now. Grandma knew a poison mushroom when she saw one and she could spot a snake in the grass from 20 feet away. Don’t ignore grandma.

    Because Republicans want to be anti-Democrats. They want to be the exact opposite of whatever Democrats stand for, even if it helps Republicans. Take for example Obama Care, it is based on Romney Care but because Democrats authored the bill, they opposed it.

    It is the difference between evil dreamers and cautious realists. I'm sure I don't have to explain which is which.
