  • Nothing but Chaos

    Aligning to a particular party has cost us very much. While it seems like the two parties present in today's society are seemingly opposing, covering a broad spectrum of commoners' tastes, they are essentially the same thing. Obama has Obamacare; Romney has Romneycare. Really, this bickering is essentially reduced to one's opinion of if they like red or blue the most.

  • I Think They Should

    They serve no other purpose than to promote chaos, division, and inefficiency. Washington and the founding fathers warned us against the evils of partisanship, now we have seen the repercussions. In my opinion, politicians should run as individuals instead of being poster boys for whatever party they are a part of. This allows for a more efficient republic and democracy.

  • The Constitution Didn't Want Them

    Why not a single mention of political parties, if the system created by the Constitution was meant to function with them? They make the Electoral College irrelevant, when it could be truly representative of individual voters. Dissolving them would need to be accompanied by campaign finance laws, so it doesn't become a de facto party system, as in the Nebraska legislature. But once representatives are free to align their values with their campaigns, instead of according to a party line, we will enable a more sophisticated representation of American values and expectations.

  • Divisions and chaos

    People fight because of political parties. The country will fall. It causes conflict which leads to contrariety. All rights should be protected. The framers feared that this would happen. People hate our leaders. It makes life harder for a lot of people. This is why we don't need political parties. We don't need political parties.

  • All we get consistently are lies

    We always get told which party to vote for and what they will do but increasingly they "never" pull through. We don't need men/women of power trying to lead our countries of the world, but humble honest people. Also transparent people who are not of any faith.. Be helping run the country. There should only be 20 or so people at the top there are too many people doing different things and it causes utter chaos

  • Party first, country second will never work

    They spend so much time making promises to voters to get elected, just to be elected and focus on more campaigning instead of their duties. All we ever hear is scandal after scandal, name calling and placing blame on the other parties. Enough is enough. They should be doing their jobs by passing laws and finding solutions to problems instead of just pointing them out, creating new ones and blaming the other party for it.

  • Nothing but division

    Political parties in the U.S. are toxic. When important decisions need to be made that effects public education and healthcare a great decision needs to be made! However when we have no middle ground among the two parties (Republican and Democrat), or when one party has has more members in congress than the other, it's no wonder things can't get done! And that is why our poor presidents have no other choice but to use executive order.

  • It's just rational

    Political parties divide the people. It also kind of influences people to follow a mainstream idea when it all honesty we should have different views and give a chance to all good ideas. George Washington had even stated in his farewell address not to form political parties but to instead hold out to our own different views and vote for what's confidentially the best idea. A little bonus would also be that people would have to study and search for the person THEY believe is right instead of a whole group providing you two options with bad ideas instead of many more that range from bad to mediocre to good.

  • They need the unity

    Individual couldn't possibly have the money to fund their campaigns alone. So only the corrupt and/or rich people can become politicians?
    In poorer countries this is an even bigger problem since the amount of rich people tend to be less.
    So every country would be an oligarchy of the rich if political parties are banned.

    Also, no one person is a perfect leader. They can use the advice they may get from fellow party members. If there were no parties and every man for himself scenario. Then nobody will want to advise each other on doing their jobs better

  • To Ban is just as BAD!

    Don't agree with banning a group, let them have their "Freedom of Speech" same as everyone else. I learn a lot from listening to enemies, (Bhagavadgita, Art of War) but the CURRENT SYSTEM denies anyone EXCEPT D & R as "real and getting government support monies". So the media also supports this behavior. The D & R own the Debate system so they of course do not "allow" outsiders, and the Koch Brothers show WHY Corporations & Individuals should be limited in HOW THEY CAN SPEND, not how much they spend on an election. The fact of Koch Bros owning media is sick and propaganda is thick. USA does not teach learning, it teaches Obedience & Social behavior molding to conform. A system designed for FAILURE

  • Political parties are important even they are "dirty" sometimes

    The debate party is media for people with same vision in politic also a media to go into politic much easier. If we didnt have political paryies those people who have interest, will totally confuse, because they wont know whose gonna help him tahat have same vision with him, we need political parties

  • They should NOT control our primaries...

    There is no need to ban political parties outright. In fact, the party a candidate aligns with can give citizens a better understand of the principles practiced by said candidate.

    But these political parties should not control our primary elections. As it stands now, political parties exert complete control over primaries and they operate completely outside of federal elections law until the primary process is over and a candidate has already been chosen. This has allowed the two major parties to provide only controlled choices in every presidential election since their inception.

    If we are going to allow the parties to control the primary process, we need to seriously consider switching to an approval voting system where all parties can be adequately represented.
