However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion.Answer Question

Well, it just goes to show history repeats itself. What they worked so hard to do and tried to free themselves from, they knew that someday it would happen again, if we were not careful and take heed to their words. Unfortunately we don't listen very well, and study history enough, because we are bound to repeat it once again.
