I firmly agree with Congressman Kucinich. Our government was created by a group of people who had just escaped from a tyrannical leader. Their main goal when framing our constitution was to protect the rights of the people. What they realized was that one of the main enemies of working democracy was the forming of factions. Factions are small goups working for their own good, against the common good. George Washington was opposed to political parties all together. While he had views that were in line with the Federalists he refused to join their party. The party system is dysfuntional.
