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?
