Are political parties really needed in America? Why do you think so?


What if we abolished political parties altogether? George Washington urged us not to create them, he said it would divide the country. Thomas Jefferson was a member of one, but only because he realizes that even that early in our country's history he needed party backing to become a part of the government. He was also against them. Two founding fathers were against them, but they are strong today. You need either party backing or a lot of your own money to run for office in this country. Do you agree with this?
