I think political parties are stupid and they need to be destroyed. George Washington said that political parties will split our country (The Civil War). A huge majority of republicans were in the north and a huge majority of democrats were in the south. I don't think you should let a political party chose all of your opinions for you.

I'm glad I can debate this topic with you.

Firstly, I would like to highlight the importance and functions of political parties. Parties represent the interests of the citizens. These interest often differs between each other. Thus several political parties are neccesary to satisfy every cititzen's interest.
Furthermore, politicians are capable to debate based on facts and rational arguments. Citizens don't have neither the time or endurance nor the knowledge to decide about issues in the economy or foreign policy. Often fear, ignorance and even prejudices influence the Average Joe's opinion.
Additionally, how do you organize a decision making in a country with several millions of inhabitants without having political parties? I assume you demand elements of direct democracy.
