George Washington's Farewell Address
Friends and Fellow-Citizens:
The period for a new election of a citizen to administer the executive government of the United States being not far distant, and the time actually arrived when your thoughts must be employed in designating the person who is to be clothed with that important trust, it appears to me proper, especially as it may conduce to a more distinct expression of the public voice, that I should now apprise you of the resolution I have formed, to decline being considered among the number of those out of whom a choice is to be made.
I have already intimated to you the danger of parties in the state...
Let me now take a more comprehensive view and warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party, generally.
In particular, the baneful effects of
Republican and Democratic
parties of 2016.
The domination of one faction over another
in 2016, the factions are, Republican and Democratic...
The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of persons to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation on the ruins of public liberty.
Till now, the factions of Divided States of America, had effectively managed to keep any outsiders from entering into it. In 2016, somehow, Donald Trump got into one of the factions of Divided States of America and now wiping out both factions of Divided States of America.
By eliminating both factions, Donald Trump is now fulfilling the wishes of the Founding Fathers. That is the command from George Washington. When both factions are gone, America will be United again.
the common and continual mischiefs of
the spirit of party are sufficient to make it
the interest and the duty of a wise people
to discourage and restrain it.
Donald Trump had never understood the challenge of eliminating the political factions from United States of America. Ross Perot did make an attempt; several other wise people did try it. But, they couldn't fulfill the command of George Washington. But, Donald Trump did it.
The factions of United States of America; Republican and Democrats...
It agitates the community with ill founded jealousies and false alarms, kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection.
Here, in 2016, both factions are now united against
the Destroyer of Factions, Donald Trump.
There is an opinion that parties in free countries are useful checks upon the administration of the government and serve to keep alive the spirit of liberty.
This within certain limits is probably true— and in governments of a monarchical cast patriotism may look with indulgence, if not with favor, upon the spirit of party.
But in those of the popular character, in governments purely elective, it is a spirit not to be encouraged.
The factions not to be encouraged...that was two centuries ago.
Then, George Washington was gentle.
Now, George Washington says, destroy the factions of America; right now.
Soon, George Washington will rest in peace; till then, at war with both factions.
