In 1780, John Adams was quoted saying that, “There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic 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.” Unfortunately, it seems that as a country we have made the founding fathers’ greatest dread a reality.
