"There is nothing I dread So much, as a Division of the Republick into two great Parties, each arranged under its Leader, and concerting Measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble Apprehension is to be dreaded as the greatest political Evil, under our Constitution."
(1735-1826) Founding Father, 2nd US President
John Adams, Letter to Jonathan Jackson, October 1780, referring to the Constitutional Convention which introduced the Massachusetts Constitution of 1780
