There seems to be a sociocultural & sociopolitical divide between Liberals & Conservatives. Each has an issue regarding the fabric of America. Each wants different things for America. There is a disagreement over the key issues of America whether it is sexism, racism, classism, & other divides. This is your chance now to have a DEEP discussion over the issues which you feel are plaguing America.
It seems the current division is deep in itself. One of the many factors contributing to the divide is addressed here (class mobility):

"American culture is filled with anecdotes about the promise of equal opportunity and the pursuit of happiness. Beliefs in the American Dream permeate our parenting decisions, educational practices, and political agendas, and yet, according to data we present in this manuscript, Americans are largely inaccurate when asked to describe actual trends in social class mobility in society. Across four studies, samples of online survey participants and university students exhibited substantial and consistent overestimates of class mobility—overestimating the amount of income mobility and educational access in society by a wide margin. A meta-analytic summary of the findings reveals that participants overestimated class mobility by nearly 23 percentage points across the studies"

The Democrat party today is not the Democrat party I knew growing up. My father who served in the military for 26 years, fought in 3 wars had a deep love of this country and what it stands for. He was also a dedicated Democrat. Our family's history of having relatives live and die under Stalin made him, and all my dad's relatives, have a white, hot, hatred of socialism and communism. This was common for Democrats back then.
The Democrats of today have gone extremely left. They are against our country's best interest. There are still blue-dog democrats like my father, but the Democrat party is overrun with leftists. There is a huge divide in the Democrat party. There is in the Republican party with RINOs, but I don't think it's as extreme.
Socialism and Communism must be stopped. It destroys countries and kills people. That is why liberals in the Democrat party must be stopped. The youth of today has been taught many falsehoods about the United States. They are often ignorant of its greatness and what opportunities it offers those who want to take advantage it.
So, like my family and my father before me, I will fight against Socialism and Communism with every breath I take. I've heard the stories and know what it did to my family.
I became a Republican during the years of President Ronald Reagan. He and what he stood for impressed me. I have no regrets.
I miss the old Democrat party where we would joke with one another as we tried to get our candidates elected and the day after the election we would meet one another in a bar and talk about sports. We both loved the country, but in different ways.
Mike, I mean no disrespect to your family, but it sounds like your family, although Democrats, actually were more Patriots than Democrats! When you say "the old Democrat party" which old Democrat party was that?
The old Democratic Party that defended slavery and started the Civil War
the old Democrat party that founded the KKK
the old Democrat Party that fought against every major civil rights act in U.S. history?
Was there some other old Democrat Party we don't know about?

I am just wondering, why they are fighting so hard. As soon as someone gets to the top, not only do they attack someone during the debates, but so does the media. Why don't they just work on helping they people who will vote for them. I don't think they are doing enough of that. ...
