Answer:

In his farewell address, Washington warned people of the dangers of partisan politics. He disliked the idea of two waring factions that were eventually created in the Democrats and the Federalists. George Washington said of political parties:
"It serves to distract the Public Councils, and enfeeble the Public Administration....agitates the Community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms; kindles the animosity of one....against another....it opens the door to foreign influence and corruption...thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another."

- Personally, I'm always amazed that he managed to avoid tyrannical rule and set the two term precedent for the presidential office.
