The issues are what should be relevant. But nowadays, the issues get lost in party labels and histrionics. People see a party label and ignore the issues. It's detrimental to our country.
I heard probably on history channel the other day the founders weren't really thinking parties would form in the manner they have. What a shock it would be I guess for George and Tom and Ben to see us now.
