A case for abolishing political parties

Don Buck wrote that there are two issues that are most of our financial and political problems. His solutions are excellent.

Term limits -- because our Founding Fathers did not intend that politicians make a career of their elected offices.

And his solution for taxation is the proposed fair tax but there is an issue that has probably created more political problems, and this would be political parties. When our Founding Fathers established our Republic they were concerned about factions being a detriment to the Republic they gave us. Political parties are the ultimate factions; our Founding Fathers should have banned factions that evolved into political parties.

In a Republic political parties are superfluous entities. In a Republic we elect people to vote on issues according to how the majority of his constituents want him to vote.

So, let's just abolish political parties -- an archaic concept -- not necessary in a Republic.
