11. You can trace this back at least as far as the Palmer Raids

under Wilson (Palmer was the AG - and this a democratic administration).

As I offered earlier in a socialist progressives post, I do believe the parties are going through a period of change right now that is not unprecedented historically. The democrats are becoming the party of the status quo (particularly in terms of support of the free market) while adopting progressive social stances. The repugs are becoming a revolutionary party in terms of fighting globalism, but adopting a very strict social stance (theocracy). I would suggest that traditional progressives are not going to fit neatly in either party. Bernie is getting older, but we'll see if he has the energy to take this to the next level (form a third party).
