“There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.”
― John Adams, The Works Of John Adams, Second President Of The United States, letter to Jonathan Jackson, 2 October, 1780
Maryland Forward believes John Adams was exactly correct and we think that the tribalism we see today is a direct correlation. We believe that through Ranked Choice Voting and Non-partisan primaries we can restore choice and compromise to our State and our Union.
