Partisan politics result in marginal gains for a certain side which amount to very little or no results for the nation as a whole
Traditional political squabbling is nothing but posturing and having a side on an issue as superficial as a gang color
Party politics have left us with no real mechanism for genuine action in America
Internal party fighting MAY have its place, but not to the degree that it occurs today. Fighting between the parties also MAY have a place but again, not to the degree that it has occured today! The pretense of a party system is SUPPOSED to be to polarize activity so things happen more efficiently! This is the exact opposite extreme of what has happened!
