What you pointed out is what republican were. There is almost no connection between them in this day and age. Both dems and reps now run a fusion policy where they will take up a stance if it benefits them and that is all. Basically they are both fakes and liars if it is needed to win some seats or election.
Some of what you say is true, some not. Both parties have problems with being purchased by constituencies. At the same time, Democrats still like racial discrimination, today it's called reverse discrimination. Republicans for the most part would prefer not to have racial preference. Personally, my preference would be to have those who have been disadvantaged culturally and economically get extra help.
Elizabeth Warren is an example of whats wrong, claiming to be an American Indian. Similarly Barry Obama may have claimed to be Kenyan, which could have opened the doors to Harvard Law School for him.
Elizabeth and Barry weren't exactly disadvantaged as a kid growing up in an inner city with great poverty at a failed public school. I'd prefer for kids who go through that to get help, regardless or race.
As to the FCC, I think candidate Obama promised an end to the revolving door, but it seems the door revolves faster now, at least at the FCC.
We can't let regulators know they will get cushy jobs with the regulated if they behave appropriately (for the regulated). Neither party has been particularly good at clearing this up, but it seems the current administration is very very bad at it.--
