Abraham Lincoln addressed the threat of faction in government.

“I have never had a feeling politically that did not spring forth from the sentiments embodied in the Declaration of Independence — I have pondered over the toils that were endured by the officers and soldiers of the army, who achieved that Independence. I have often inquired of myself, what…
