QUOTE: George Washington’s take on Political Parties

Listen to this post

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 afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust domination.

~ George Washington’s Farewell Address
September 17, 1796
