The founding fathers didn't like the idea of a party system, and I'm not a fan of it either. I'm sick of hearing Republicans and Democrats fighting all of the time. Suddenly, government has become more about these silly games than about bettering the country, and it legitimately worries me. I would classify myself as a Democrat, but I happen to think that both sides of the coin have valuable ideas that should be applied here. Instead, I see adults acting like children, refusing to listen to each other and throwing fits if they don't get their ways. Is this the system we want representing our country? Folks, it isn't a competition. Two heads are better than one, and we are missing out on some incredible potential if we are letting parties get in the way of politics. Agree or disagree? I say we do away with the system entirely. It's every person for him/herself and may the best person get the position.
