why are there parties dividing our government ....should we actually represent the people instead of a parties intrest(just tryin to keep an open mind)

The different parties exist to represent the major agendas of the people - conservative and liberal etc. Nobody wants a single party with dominance - there needs to be competition because the people benefit due to the party's willingness to listen to us because they need our vote to be in power.

It's up to the people of the US to take back the government. We barely have 50% show up when voting for President then the other 50% belly aches about how lousy things are. Take back the government and vote. The parties give different alternatives on how to confront problems. If they all thought alike we might as well have a dictatorship.
