When the 1st President of the United States was leaving his prestigious office, he projected onto the people one of the most insightful speeches in American history. In 1796 George Washington would observe major trends in factionalism occurring under the noses of American’s politically, and in his same speech, would also give one of the starkest warnings to all those paying attention:
“…Men may endeavor to excite a belief, that there is a real difference of local interests and views. One of the expedients of party [in order] to acquire influence within particular districts is to misrepresent the opinions and aims of other districts,…The alternate dominion of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge…will gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual;… (also) it opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions.”
Further he wrote, “you should properly estimate the immense value of your national Union to your collective and individual happiness;… indignantly frowning upon the first dawning of every attempt to alienate any portion of our country from the rest. … Your Union ought to be considered as a main prop of your liberty, and the love of one ought to endear to you the preservation of the other.”
Ultimately, Washington was giving a dark forecast of what he saw becoming of the new American government. Originally a government mostly joined in unity, quickly became saturated with social undercurrents, that started to drag down any cohesion in American culture and politics. It began with differing ideals that started with the emergence of the early American colonies, which were an import from Great Britain. An agrarian lifestyle with their own differing denominations of Christianity fomented the ideals and daily life that governed their people. With the very rapid expansion in farming and textiles, came political influences (lobbying) that became a crucial part of keeping slavery alive in the more Southern states.
With the educational growth of Social Darwinism (that is, human evolution and a meaningless yet very materialistic life--thanks to Karl Marx in 1844), came the idea that God was an outdated crutch; used by an outdated faith, by ideologically outdated people, who lack the means for social and political success. The quick separation of ‘God and State’ began to take hold towards the latter half of the 19th century. It is this interpretation of evolutionary tendencies, creating a “vogue of social Darwinism” which “discouraged governmental intervention [on] behalf of Negroes as well as underprivileged groups”—including “poor white people.” “It encouraged the belief that a solution to the race problem could only evolve slowly as the Negroes gradually improved themselves.” 
Saturated in Corruption
The two-decades that precluded the Civil War proved a “critical juncture” for the United States as a joined Union. Historian Kenneth Stampp holds firm that starting in the early 1800s –…sociologists, anthropologists, and psychologists (mostly secular) presented what they regarded as convincing evidence of innate racial traits-evidence indicating that Negroes were intellectually inferior to whites and had distinctive emotional characteristics. It was the social scientists that supplied the racists of the late nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries with something that antebellum pro-slavery writer had always lacked: a respectable scientific argument.”
In the 1870s, the South’s “natural leaders” officially took back office from designated regional Southern leaders, and restore civil control of the Southern states from the Union military’s governmental authority. Starting almost immediately after the Civil War, the legally pardoned (for varying levels of treason) bureaucrats of the Democratic party would be busted for embezzling over $1,378,000 between the 1860s and the 1880s. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, that would be about “$27,151,333.59 in 2020.” One editor of a Southern newspaper would write that an “infamous ring” of “corrupt office seekers… [had] debauched the ballot boxes, raised taxes, and plunged States into debt.”
Another Democratic politician was quoted as stating: “Sir, it is no secret that there has not been a full vote and a fair count… since 1875” Further he says, “In other words we have been stuffing ballot boxes, committing perjury, and here and there in the state carrying the elections by fraud and violence…No man can be in favor of perpetuating the election methods which have prevailed…since 1875 who is not a moral idiot.” Corruption was not just directly in politics either. Corruption has got to be sustainable for the needs to meet the ends. And, if you are corrupt, you would put together a plan to push a false narrative. The same politicians would indoctrinate future generations, by manipulating the American educational system—economically and financially.
Secular elites in public schools and prominent universities across the country (lobbied by certain government officials) would aggressively push and expand on Godless education, and on gaining a solid foothold on the public education system. This should explain clearly the push into secular reasoning; that is, the absence of God and His influence in American politics and culture. This is critical to understand that the entire design of the post-Civil War Democratic party was realigned ideologically to continue an ongoing subvert war on the federal government… a shadow-war for political power.
Leveraging Indirect Political Power
Dr. Beliles and Stephen McDowell explains that prior to the Civil War, “Harvard was taken over by Unitarians, and as the quality of public education declined, Horace Mann convinced Massachusetts that the answer was to let civil government take charge of it instead of the private sector.” Ultimately this was the ‘beginning of the end’ to wipe away Christianity from American government—eroding the morals and ethics from the famous “Protestant Ethic.” To break the will of a people—to enable social and economic slavery on a post-Civil War American society—would be to begin at the source of where all decision making begins.
What one learns through life’s professional dealings, formal education, and personal experiences will always shape one’s mind and one’s thoughts.
It’s important to note that regardless of current political arguments, there is always a truth behind what motivates people—and politicians.
The fact of the matter is this: The Democratic Party, historically, has always largely been a political party of deception, aristocracy, and fundamental slavery.
It is the way of the world, and unless things change significantly (which will never happen)… it shall always remain.
