Both the Republican and Democratic names are as fake as wrestling. These names were created by the elite to keep 'we the people' entertained and to keep us from starting a revolution. As long as 'we the people' believe we have a choice in voting, we will not start a march on Washington for the troubles and oppressions they the tyrants are bringing about.
The only persons that will be in authority, and be 'elected' in office over the country are the ones the elite (Wealthy corporations) will allow to be there. We are just a bunch of ignorant people the Feds want to keep busy and keep out of their business. A brief summary of the standpoint of both parties in the 1860s provides an excellent example of the triviality in party branding. Like contemporary politics, the 1860s were a time of intense political division in America. The Republican Party, led by the recently elected Lincoln, argued in favor of equality for all peoples of the republic, referring primarily to the immorality of slavery. From a purely ideological perspective such ideas seem democratic in nature. Furthermore the Democratic Party (although dealing with internal political divisions at the time) championed the rights of states to choose whether slavery was acceptable in their territory, thereby limiting the power of the president by limiting the power of the federal government. Another example of the disconnect between political nomenclature and political reality is Jefferson’s Republican Party’s (different from Lincoln’s Republican Party which is still in existence today) support for popular sovereignty, which was essentially the idea that states should hold referendum to decide the question of slavery with in their territories.

In conclusion, by adopting names that have broad appeal and emotional as well as historical significance to Americans, Political parties in the United States have successfully created a false paradigm of ideological beliefs that have no real bearing on practical politics. The emergence of the Tea party, in which uses a reference to the infamous Boston Tea Party to create an emotional appeal with the electorate is only the latest in a long line of manipulation by the political elite to mislead the public from important issues by focusing on rhetoric and irrelevant ideological debates.
