    In political parties such as the House of Representatives and the Senate, the Republicans and the Democrats. Parties are designed to be inefficient, the most efficient government (a tyranny) is also the most dangerous. Parties are to prevent the gain of the few by bogging it down in the Bureaucracy.
     -- The Student Philosopher, Utah

    To whittle everything down into 2 views is nonsensical. Party politics is a form of monopoly of public opinion for the purposes of acquiring power for personal gain.
