“The Founders feared and hated political parties. Most Americans say ‘the two major parties do such a poor job representing the American people that a third party is needed.’ People love to hate parties, but there has never been a modern democracy without political parties. It is inevitable that political actors will congregate based on shared beliefs. It is vital, then, that a nation-state’s party system be healthy and provide voters with reasonable choices that the majority can embrace, or at least tolerate.” (01/06/22)
