I feel it is time to get rid of political parties.

Political Party's are nothing more than vehicles used to hijack what should be the people system of governing. So maybe it is time to start electing independent candidates whom are free of the party shackles.

It is time we elect candidates who will represent the constituencies , not some gang that control a political party to use for "their" benefit. I feel that these independent canditades sign an agreement to work on behalf of the constituency and if the candidate breaks trust , then they can be recalled.

Maybe it is time the voter / taxpayer had control , not these gangs known as political party's.
