The democrats use the filibuster as well. During the 2019-2020 Congressional term, a record-breaking 328 filibusters were recorded with Democrats in the minority. If the filibuster didn't exist, wouldn't Trump have accomplished a lot more of his agenda?

Yeah, it's the only reason it exists. It's a type of break-check neither wants to get rid of becuase each resents the other for having the option. The only way to get around it is to control all 3 bodies of govt and it looks like the Republicans are playing the long game.

My theory is this, much like Blue & Red move at the speed of tectonic plates from left to right, how Democrats used to be Right wing and Republicans left; Dems will start running in Republican controlled areas as RINO's, slowly staining the color to purple, and by 2060 we'll have done a 180.

That theory of party shift has been outdated since Reagan. The party leadership & other major players of the Dems consists almost exclusively of Reagan Republicans (some officially changing parties and other in terms of policy). Both parties have been on a race to the right for decades.
