Politics: The More Things Change, the More They Stay the Same

NewspapersThe 2016 Presidential election is in full swing and, unless you have cut yourself off from the outside world, you’ve been privy to a front row seat of the unfolding battle. A big story playing out in this year’s election process is the split in the Republican Party. On a regular basis there is news about presidential candidate Donald Trump against Candidate X or against Candidate Y. The recurring theme is Trump against the rest.

For many, seeing the party split may be a new experience. There has not been a major party contention such as this for many decades. But, if you search through the history books, you’ll find it’s a tale told over and over again. The more things change, the more they stay the same, politics not excepted.

Listen in as Kevin King discusses political upheaval and party splits of the past, starting with the first party split of the Democrat-Republican party in the early 19th century.
