When our forefathers wrote the Constitution, they never anticipated political parties. Their idea was that states would elect representatives from a group of qualified individuals who would represent the concerns of their state and the federal government.
They thought that a room full of intelligent people could solve any problem. They did not anticipate hundreds of new laws, as their Constitution limited the size and scope of the federal government.
As a matter of fact, they considered the role of a senator or representative as a part-time job.
But that dream ended within a few years, as groups created political parties. Now we no longer have individual thought, because political parties represent group thought.
With elections come thousands of jobs. The handing out of these jobs makes the party leaders very powerful, so the first interest of the party is to win elections. ‘
The main problem for the people is that the parties are more interested in the parties than the problems of the people.
Right now we are witnessing that very problem. The two parties will not pass a law that makes the other party look good. They don’t care for the hardship and suffering of people while they play their selfish game.
Our forefathers are turning over it their graves.
