An excerpt from George Washington's Farewell Address from September 17th, 1796 among the warnings that Washington gave in his farewell address that included the likes of; foreign entanglements & alliances, political Unity, to much public debt, and many others. George Washington gave us the other warning to Beware the Spirit of the Political Party that it would indefinitely split the nation. Do you believe he was correct? Have we (the USA) lost track of our common goal, lost that Political Unity? Have we become so entangled amongst the "Red" and "Blue" that we've divided ourselves yet again as we once did almost 150 years ago? This is not a thread to debate who is right and who is wrong or what party is the better. In fact it is quite the opposite. The only stance to take here is either Pro-Party or Anti-Party and to explain why you feel that way. Because if you are for one party, then this thread demands that you are for the other.
