How the US Ended Up With Two Right-Wing Parties?

The 2020 US Presidential elections was billed by many as the battle for the soul of America. The progressive left-wing, democratic party slugging out to defeat the right-wing, racist, xenophobic, conservative Republican party, led by the all-evil Donald Trump. Joe Biden’s win was celebrated as a victory for the progressives. But what if it’s all just a performance? What if I told you that The United States of America actually has TWO right-wing parties?
