17. OP assumes that the 'family' analogy with a political party is an accurate one.
When it is actually the farthest thing from a family unit, dysfunctional or nor, in any way.

And that is the real problem with many people; they see the president as 'Daddy', and not the elected politician that he is.

Political parties are not families, they are a conglomerate of different constituencies all clamoring for their point of view to be the paramount one.
