  • Non party primary

    Primaries should be open and free from party bastarization. All candidates should be on a single ballot. If no candidate wins over 50 percent of the vote then a runoff between the two top vote getters would be held. This would eliminate the potential of electing an official with less than 50 percent of the vote.

  • 19.3 Trillion Dollars

    All the politicians just focus on "party this, party that" and don't focus on the real issue of kids dying or the 19.3 Trillion dollars in taxes. That need to focus on the real issue and not vote because of the Republican Party or Democratic Party, or even the free soil party! They shouldn't care about the party just focus on if they like the person or not!!!

  • Definitely. No blind loyalty!

    I registered back in 2013 as a No Party voter, because I wanted to focus on the individual candidates as well as their policies, not Team Elephant vs. Team Donkey. Turns out I can't vote in the New York primaries because I want to think and research instead of blindly following whatever party I supported and whoever was on it. George Washington was right in his 1797 Farewell Address: political parties would divide the country. They also drag in unenthusiastic, lazy voters who will blindly pick who was their party's candidate.

  • It's hurting U.S. policy

    They spend the majority of their time fighting and trying to make the other party look bad instead of taking care of issues. They don't vote with what they actually believe as individuals or what the people they represent want. They just go with what their party tells them to vote for. They were more then happy to let the military and government workers go without pay during sequestration while they still collected paychecks.

  • Absolutely--the parties are a detriment to our country coming together and getting anything accomplished

    Congress voting against or for an issue just because it belongs to their party gets us no where. All parties have good/not so good ideas and solutions. Americans deserve the best ideas and solutions--coming together for the best policies, etc. We look like fools with all of the bashing and arguing and stalemates. Time for a change

  • Personally finding myself discrediting others purely because they are republican.

    It's true we automatically make assumptions. That goes beyond political parties. Not only do we need to abolish political parties but know they're true history to understand where their true alliance stands. Whether they smoked a joint or had a mistress on the side at sometime in their lives does not matter. However, if they worked for the untouchable HSBC does. In the end without political parties people can judge the person after the facts not a knee jerk reaction to democratic, republican or heaven forbid independent.

  • They serve only to control

    Political parties keep everything in dichotomous catigories when in reality there are not two options. Political parties also put a lot of control over our political system in private organizations namely political parties. It would be way more representative of the whole population if we had several individuals with different stances and we selected the winner using a ranked system of voting.

  • Stop voting for parties and start voting for people

    We need to stop acting like America is divided into teams. Well it may not be tearing us apart critically, it definitely distracts the American people and disorients any sense of unison as a nation and as a land of free people with the common goal of voting to make life better for all of us. Of course there are differences in opinions but they are individual opinions, not many are totally one way or another, and those who are, are usually blinded by modern propaganda.

  • They need to go away.

    It only divides our nation. If we find out someone is a rep or dem, assumptions are already made about all their viewpoints. Let's just have people running for office, not political parties....And voters are more apt to listen to the individual, and not be for or against someone simply because they are blue or red.

  • No, just the people promoting them

    People need to identify with something. As much as I'd like for everybody that votes to be well informed enough on who they're voting for to not have "summary" things like a party label, that simply isn't happening. As much as it breaks us in Washington, at least we know who's dragging us down. A mediocre president is being molded into an abysmal one because of an opposing party that is boastfully blocking any attempt to fix this country, in two years it will be held accountable.

  • We do need them

    We don't need to get rid of them, but form a new one.

    The political parties of America are becoming further and further polarized as many of the more moderate conservatives and liberals are leaving the parties. All that remains are the radical left and right wing party members, pulling the Democrats & Republicans further apart. Instead of leaving America to these increasingly Communist and Fascist parties, we must form a strong party out of the majority of us moderates, and take America back from these radicals.
