The parties that started after Washington left office were much different than the political parties that resulted from the election of 1824. The original setup of a political party, at the time of Washington, was more as a support group for one candidate and represented the ideas of that candidate.

Democratic Socialism With this being a year for Presidential elections, there is a lot of campaigning going on by different candidates for the office of United States President.

This last presidential election was the most controversial and divided this country has seen in decades and if a change was going to happen, it would have happened this cycle.
