Do you know who the first political parties were in the United States? You may be surprised to learn the history of the formation of the two-party system…
In 1792 the “Federalists” were invented by Alexander Hamilton and John Adams. They were supported by the Northern colonies and those with “commercial interests.” The party dissolved in 1816.
In 1796 Thomas Jefferson and James Madison founded the party of “Democratic-Republicans.” This political agenda was embraced and supported by Southerners with “landowning interests.” The DRs dominated American politics until their split in 1828. How ironic is it that the original dominant political party was a combination of the 2 dominant parties of today?
In 1828 John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay started the political group which called themselves “National Republicans.” This party was supported by those that supported the Federalists in addition to “border-state residents”. The NRs were disbanded 4 years later when the next political party arose.
In 1832 Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren brought us the infamous “Democrats.” This political ideology was promoted by the same people who embraced the DRs, plus “small farmers, backwoods types, and ‘little guys’ in general.” The Democrats dominated politics in the US until 1856.
In 1856 Abraham Lincoln gave us the “Republicans.” Those who supported this political philosophy consisted of Northerners, “Business types”, factory workers, “blacks”, and people who enjoyed “city life.” A few years later good ‘ol “Honest Abe” issued Lieber Code. The Supreme Court of the United States was abolished, and Lincoln established a new “UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT” in the District of Columbia which answers to the government corporation, not the people. This tyrannical government is what we currently live under to this day. The Republicans took (or was given) power from the Democrats and dominated American politics for 76 years until FDR came in 1932.
In 1932, Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s “Democrats” took over and remained dominant until Tricky Dick and his goons seized power in 1969. This rendition of Democrats were supported by Northeasterners, Southerners, “city dwellers,” blue-collar workers, Catholics, liberals, and minorities. These are the “Democrats” who exist today.
If you pay close attention to how the “power” of these arbitrary groups of tyrants flip-flops back and forth, it doesn’t take a political scientist to see that this is by design. The point is that this 2 party system has always dominated politics in and around the USA. How can we call ourselves the “United States” if we are fundamentally and philosophically divided by 2 asinine, unnecessary, political parties? This makes absolutely no sense to me. These men and women are literally playing a game of catch with control over the our lives, yet people are too blind to see it, or too “busy” to care. This divide and conquer tactic has been the most effective warfare strategy since the dawn of insecure, dick-swinging, “men.” Until we recognize government for what it really is (useless), there will be NO “change.” Stop following others and start thinking for yourself.
