Hear Hear!

This bears repeating:

Political parties are a tool to win elections.

Like any tool, they are not good or evil by their existence. They are only as good or bad as the people who populate the elected positions within them. Some will say they should be abolished or done away with – but that is not going to happen, since they are almost as old as our country and are just a tool for organizing behind candidates and causes. Many advocate for the creation of new parties – but I am not in that camp. The Republican Party has a strong core of people who believe in Constitutional Liberty, and I would rather grow that portion of it. Let me repeat – political parties are a tool. The question to ask is not how to eliminate them, but how to wield the tool, and in who’s hand with the tool rest?
