George Washington, in his farewell address, warned about the danger of having political parties (as opposed to a bunch of independents who reached consensus.) Obviously no one listened to poor old George. Do you think a political system without political parties is workable today?
Are political parties a good idea?
Sure, why not?
I can see some problems with it, but it would be better than what we have now.
I'm not sure.
It would fix some problems, but probably create even more.
This sounds nice, but it is really a bad idea
Something else (what?)
