Dont class them up. Their called liberals. "People" implies a generality that is not present. Conservatives specifically want to save the country. Libs call us "Nationalists", which by definition is "someone who cares about their country".

A political party tells the average person up front what generally the politician in question believes in. Especially in earlier decades, this was hard to get information about what any single politician's beliefs was about. A Party very publicly lists it's platform. This way, even if you didn't know anything about any of the politicians in a race, you could simply pick the one with an "R" or "D" next to their name and know and be at least in the ball park in what principles and policies they will be for in office. They don't HAVE to sign on to all the planks of a Party platform though. You, as a voter, most likely already have a rough opinion what principles and policies are good for the country. What politician running for office fits that bill can mostly be determined by simply what Party they belong too.

Well, to some extent the political parties have very different visions of what's good for the country. Democrats think entertainment and tech provide great, high-paying jobs. Republicans think that "having a job" is synonymous with manufacture and mining. Democrats think the highest calling of a society is to be equally just toward each citizen. Republicans think the highest calling of a society is to glorify God and obey the Bible. Democrats think that diversity makes for a stronger society. Republicans think minorities need to start dressing, speaking, and acting exactly like Republicans do. You won't agree on what's "good for the country" when you have incompatible versions of "good."

If that was true then Hilary would have won. Trump won because he was the only politician who wasn't talking trash. And being political is talking trash as Hilary was all about political (PC trash that Washington DC is famous for).
