what was the belief of those who opposed the formation of political parties ?

(1) Answers

The belief is that political parties are breaking the people into factions of individualism and force the public to vote on promised alliances rather than the interests of the general citizen. It is difficult for all voices to be heard due to there being on two major parties existing in America. Also, this leads to fractures in nationalism in America, since people take sides (Democratic or Republican). Trying to bring two rivals together ends up in dividing a nation that is meant to work together. We're given limited choices when we try to pass laws that we think we need, and these parties give false hope in government representations. A party that promises some things may not actually achieve the changes that are actually needed.
