It is always better to have two opposing partings, if not more. That's why diversity is better in business and life. If you surround yourself with people who all think alike, you'll never hear an opposing view. In politics, if you didn't have a two party system, then you'd have a single mindset running the country and there would be no input on doing things differently.
Now...having said that....you need two parties that can agree and compromise on laws that hold value for the benefit of the country as oppose to an ideological agenda. We seem to be missing that part.
Ole George was a visionary. He was also a loyal brit supporter and Kings man - right up until the time he wasnt anymore. He actually WANTED to be refered to as 'King' and 'Your Highness'. Luckily the vote was for the title of 'president' eventually. For all his intelligence and contributions to the formation of a free United States, ole Geo was pretty much an harsh, arrogant pig too.

Winston Churchill said of Democracy, "It isn't perfect but it's the best system we have." The same could be said for political parties.
They are open to corruption and political chicanery, and they control the votes of individual members elected to represent local constituents; but they allow like-minded (well, similar-minded) representatives to band together in order to push legislation through Congress.
Without political parties it would be necessary for any individual congressman to spend the whole of his time trying to gather support for his/her proposals. And with the number of power-groups in any community, each with their own agenda, it would become even more corrupt than the party system.
The voter's interests would, of course, only be considered when it was necessary to secure votes to remain in office ... just like under the present system.
