I recently read an abridged version of Washington's farewell speech, which dealt with only his views on political parties. I intended to look up the full address ( which was never a speech but was distributed to newspapers), but didn't get around to it until today.
And seein' how relevant it is to so many threads here recently I thought I'd do as the man asked here and point everybody at his parting words.
Here is a link to a nice "translation" of the address, that does a pretty good job of conveying the spirit without the weird writing style, and includes a link to the original text:

I'm sure this has been discussed here before, but its the first time I've read the entire thing and he does ask....
So what does everybody think about this?
I find it better than anything by Nostradamus!
Kinda sad commentary on our present state though...
