An AVM Essay in Reality by John M Jones III
Many people don’t know that many of the founding fathers viewed political factions or parties “as corrupt relics of the monarchical British system that they wanted to discard in favor of a truly democratic government,” or that George Washington’s family had fled England because of wars started by political parties. “Alexander Hamilton once called political parties ‘the most fatal disease’ of popular governments’ or that James Madison, “who wrote in Federalist 10 that one of the functions of a ‘well-constructed Union’ should be ‘its tendency to break and control the violence of faction.’ (1)
“However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterward the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.” GEORGE WASHINGTON, Farewell Address, September 19, 1796 (2)
“There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.” JOHN ADAMS, letter to Jonathan Jackson, October 2, 1789 (2)
“If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.” DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER, speech, March 6, 1956 (2)
“Party leads to vicious, corrupt and unprofitable legislation, for the sole purpose of defeating party.” JAMES FENIMORE COOPER, The American Democrat (2)
“The bosses of the Democratic party and the bosses of the Republican party alike have a closer grip than ever before on the party machines in the States and in the Nation. This crooked control of both the old parties by the beneficiaries of political and business privilege renders it hopeless to expect any far-reaching and fundamental service from either.” THEODORE ROOSEVELT, The Outlook, July 27, 1912 (2)
“Political language -- and with variations this is true of all political parties, from Conservatives to Anarchists -- is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.” GEORGE ORWELL, Politics and the English Language (2)
“I don't like either political party. One should not belong to them -- one should be an individual, standing in the middle. Anyone that belongs to a party stops thinking.” RAY BRADBURY, attributed, Independent Politics: How American Disdain for Parties Leads to Political Inaction (2)
“Political parties are corporations, much like General Motors, for example. GM makes cars, political parties make political candidates. The leadership of GM makes decisions about which cars to make; political parties make decisions about which candidates to make. They do not ask rank-and-file ‘members’ what they want. Both are trying to come up with what they think will win the game.” GARY MILLINGTON, letter to the editor, "Political parties are about money, not fairness", Tallahassee Democrat, April 17, 2016 (2)
“Saying we should keep the two-party system simply because it is working is like saying the Titanic voyage was a success because a few people survived on life rafts.” EUGENE J. MCCARTHY, Chicago Tribune, September 10, 1978 (2)
“The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.” G. K. CHESTERTON, "The Blunders of Our Parties", The Collected Works of G. K. Chesterton (2)
“All political parties die at last of swallowing their own lies.” JOHN ARBUTHNOT, attributed, Life of Emerson
From 1976 to 1980, because the republican party lost the presidency, they complained about & obstructed carter’s administration. At the same time, the democrats & their democrat media criminal cohorts lied to the American people about the blatant & massive failures of the carter administration.
From 1981 to 1988, because the democrat party lost the presidency, they not only complained about & obstructed reagan’s administration, but viciously attacked Reagan personally as a racist, and that he was just a dumb actor. The democrat criminal media cohorts supported them by breathlessly reporting on negative stories with anonymous or secret sources, hearsay, or outright lies.
From 1989-1992, because the democrat party still didn’t have the presidency, they complained & obstructed bush’s administration and personally attacked him. Some even called him a nazi sympathizer, a wimp, a racist just to demonize the republican party. The democrat media criminal cohorts supported them by eagerly criticizing bush and investigating everything the president said or did then daily claiming he was guilty of some fictitious wrongdoing.
From 1993 to 2000, because the republican party lost the presidency, they complained & obstructed clinton’s administration.

(5)
From 2001-2008, because the democrat party lost the presidency, they complained about & obstructed bush’s Administration and viciously attacked bush for the entirety of his administration.

From 2009-2016, because the republican party lost the presidency, they complained about & obstructed obama’s administration.

The democrat media criminal cohorts covered up at least 18 obama scandals they also repeatedly called obama the greatest man on earth and allowing him to lie to America by saying his administration was scandal-free.

I have witnessed democrats personally attack people for no other reason than their party affiliation, and them blatantly lie to our faces and rig elections. I've seen them obstruct good legislation and force through bad legislation without even reading it, and then commit numerous scandals and when caught feign their innocence. I've seen them use the political system for their own financial gain, and they kill people and still spend years in congress. I've heard them call all republicans are racist, bigots, sexist, nazis, and more, just to get votes and with the help of their democrat media criminal cohorts, I've seen them take our country and our laws and flush them right down the toilet.
I have witnessed republicans personally attack people for no other reason than their party affiliation, and them blatantly lie and be total hypocrites. I've seen them obstruct good legislation and force through bad legislation without even reading it, and then commit numerous scandals and when caught feign their innocence. I've seen them use the political system for their own financial gain, them commit crimes and resign. I never heard them dispute the democrats when they called them racist, bigots, or nazis, and never heard them push back against a biased media who maliciously and with the consent of the democrats viscously attacked them with lies & FAKE NEWS. Finally, I've seen them take our country and our laws and flush them right down the toilet.
In the last three years, I've seen people from ALL political parties and members of the d.c. swamp called then-candidate & now President Trump a racist, bigot, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, transphobic, a nazi and more for no other reason that he wanted to enforce the laws of our country on the books long before his election. I’ve seen the democrats, democrat judges & swamp rat republicans constantly obstructed trump’s administration and at every opportunity, the democrat media criminal cohorts use daily anonymous & secret sources, hearsay, and outright lies to generate hit, click, and liberal fits.
The establishment or d.c. swamp want nay need someone they can control, someone that will do their bidding and someone to maintain the status quo. They are all there right this minute plotting against America trying to regain control of the presidency and our society. That's what political parties were before and STILL are today and that's why they need be totally destroyed and the sooner the better!!
