Thinking and voting as our Founding Fathers once did.
Did you know that the first political party in the US didn’t exist until 1791 (the Federalist Party)? Early US
political parties were more like small groups and factions of the élite, and not established parties. The only
established parties in the colonies were the Whig and Tory Parties from England. This means that since the
first English settlement at Jamestown in 1607, American existed without any political party systems of its own
for more than 184 years.
Even before the Declaration of Independence, the colonists voted for their leaders independently (without any party involvement); that means the colonists voted for the person they thought would do the best job (both locally and “nationally”) at that particular moment in time. This method included the election of the first president of the United States, George Washington, in 1789. Washington was also the first independent US president since he did not belong to a party. Although Washington agreed with some Federalist views, he stayed neutral and always retained his independent status.
There have been many political groups, factions, and parties in America, but to have permanently existing parties was never the intention of the Founding Fathers. They knew from England/UK history and their recent history in the American colonies with the Whigs/Tories that parties leave the people behind. This is why parties were never mentioned in the Constitution and why many of the Founding Fathers spoke openly against them. NONE of the parties are bound to this country or any of its documents, which means that they are replaceable or we can end them. Of course, both use scare tactics so that we will run to them for direction or security, but as we all know now, it's just so that they can remain in power. Those days are numbered now that Americans are taking things in their own hands and making political decision on their own without being directon on what to think (which is part of being an independent thinker)>
