(The actual group to which Jefferson belonged was theanti-Federalists. The party he helped found was the"Democratic-Republicans", one faction of which became theDemocratic Par…ty, and the other the Whigs. ) Thomas Jefferson was neither Republican nor Democrat because thepolitical platforms of these two parties would not have stood achance in his time. The two parties have been hopelesslyauthoritarian and unworkable, and they would have been in his time.He was effectively a liberal, secular humanist, which would becloser, in today's world, to the Democratic Party. Perhaps this will help Jefferson can be described as an anti-Federalist, while Hamiltonwas a Federalist. Jefferson believed in a small but powerfulpeacetime navy, no peacetime army, and minimal government intrusionin people's lives. If Jefferson were alive today, he would mostlikely be a Libertarian. Jefferson was not a Republican or Democrat in the modernsense. Both parties have changed significantly since the founding of theU.S. Jefferson and his followers favored states' rights and astrict interpretation of the Constitution, which Republicanssupport today, but Jefferson also favored economic policies thatbenefited the working class and disapproved of policies thatbenefited wealthy merchants and bankers, which Democrats supporttoday. Jefferson also believed that a powerful central governmentand military posed a threat to individual liberties, which is ablend of what Democrats and Republicans believe today, sinceRepublicans oppose a powerful centralized government but support apowerful federal military and the restriction of civil libertiesincluding bans against Gay marriage, abortion and medicalmarijuana-while Democrats support a centralized government butoppose an aggressive military foreign policy and government lawsthat restrict civil liberties.
Republicans were always mostly in the Northern states ever sincethe Civil war. Also republicans favored a strong centralgovernment, hence Abraham Lincoln using the most federa…l power inhistory. The democratic party was always mostly in the southernstates ever since the civil war because many Democrats supportedslavery which was mostly in the South. Up unitl 1976 did democratsstart to be mostly in the northern states and republicans in thesouthern states like it is today. They basically flip floppeddemographics and ideas over 150 years. Though the demographics have changed republicans have always had aconservative base. Conservatives lost power in the Democratic partyduring the 1960s. They struggled to survive during the next fewdecades, many of them switching to Republicans along the way.Eventually with both Obama's victories unfortunately theconservative democrats are now barely existent, everyone left hasnow switched party affiliation.
he was a republican when he was president. he switched from being a democrat in 1962.
The democratic- republican government is a government that can either have a democratic president or a republican president. It is the exact opposite of a Federal Government.
Republicans like this country because it's a constitutional republic, the Democrats like this country because it's a democracy. -> You can't have it both ways. It's either …a Constitutional Republic or it's a Democracy. The United States was created as a Constitutional Representative Republic not a Democracy. The Founders hated and detested Democracy more than Monarchy. Some of them preferred Communism to Democracy. The names are based on differing forms of government.
The Democratic-Republicans was one of the first political parties in the United States , founded by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison around 1792. They originally called the…mselves the Anti-Federalists in opposition to the dominant Federalist Party that founded the new United States government. The Federalists favored a strong central government and held elitist values. The Democratic-Republicans supported states' rights, limited government, and a strict interpretation of the Constitution. In 1800, the Democratic Republicans won both the Presidential (Jefferson) and Vice-Presidential offices, as well as the majority of seats in Congress, causing a shift in the direction of government. The Judicial branch was still dominated by Federalists, however, and most heavily influenced by Chief Justice John Marshall, who ensured the federal government retained dominance over the states. The party split into the Democrats and Republicans in 1824, but were not the same as the Democrats and Republicans of the 21st century. The Republican Party mutated quite a few times over the years, becoming the Whig Party from 1833-1856, which then split into the Free Soil and Know-Nothing parties, as well as a new incarnation of the Republicans.
You choose what you want to be, but be careful, because there's more to politics than Elephants and Donkeys...
Well, If you look at the big picture. He is actually a pokemon.
The south wasoriginally a Democratic stronghold, upon the Democratic Partyannouncing their support for the prospect of Civil Rights, a numberof Southern Democrats broke off fr…om the national party and formedtheir own segregationist Dixiecrat Party. This schism inthe Democratic Party was mostly healed after the 1948 Presidentialelection when Truman won the election despite the Dixiecratssplitting the Democratic vote. Truman made moves during hisPresidency to eliminate the threat of the Dixiecrats competingagain in 1952. Upon the passageof the Civil Rights Act, many southern Democrats again becamedisillusioned with their party after the implicit support for thelaw by Lyndon Johnson. The southern Democrats nominated GeorgeWallace in 1968 on a platform of re-instating segregation andopposing the continued implementation of the Civil Rights Act. Uponthe shooting of Wallace, the energy mostly left what was left ofthe southern Democrats rebellion. With thenomination of Ronald Reagan for the election of 1980, manysoutherner's, loyal Democrats since the days of FDR, were moved tosupport the charismatic Reagan. After the fallout of the infightingof the Democratic Party, many formerly Democratic southerners foundthe message of the Republican Party to resonate more with theircore values, as the traditional Democrat Party moved further to theleft in an effort to solidify their support among labor unions,environmentalists, and the vestiges of the Vietnam War protestmovement that now made up their base.
definitely not, the two parties we have now should have expired a long time ago. their original values were mainly on the platform of slavery related topics, which isn't reall…y an issue anymore
The Hill is less of a partisan newspaper, and more of an "inside baseball," publication. It features pundits from both sides of the ideological spectrum, and includes many art…icles from politicians from both parties. So although The Hill isn't really permanently skewed one way or the other, it generally isn't a great place to get unbiased information. You can just get very biased info from all sides there.
The Democratic-Republicans originally called themselves the Anti-Federalists , to emphasize their differences of opinion with the Federalist Party, particularly during the co…nstitutional ratification process.
Baron Hill's birth name is Baron Paul Hill.
