Part 1: The Original Design vs. Its Corrupt Replacement, the Party System
America's Founding Fathers loathed political parties. The Framers designed and wrote the Constitution to prevent them from taking over our government.
But few today even know where the clauses are that the Framers wrote to curtail the effects parties could have on our government.
PART I restores this lost history. In the Framers' own words, it shows how they thought about parties, and shows that their conscious goal was to restrict partisan effects on American government through the Constitutional design.
PART I details the Framers' anti-party clauses and shows exactly where they are, in the Constitution's text.
House Elections. The Veto. Impeachment Powers. Selection of US Senators. The Judicial Branch.
