(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 Party, 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 federal power inhistory. The democratic party was always mostly in the southernstates ever since the civil war because many Democra…ts 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.

\nInterpretation of any constitution is not a single question that cane be answered easily. It depends on the bias of the intrepreter(s), the method employed or model used; Americans have argued about the Constitution since Day One and hopefully we will continue to do so, that's how it evolves. As f…or "Democratic-Republic(an)", The US is a Democratic Republic. (MORE)
Then it could mean a number of things. You could register as an Independent (capital I) and be a part of the Independent party, which is not the same as not registering at all, and being an independent (lower case i), which is someone who doesn't identify with any particular party and bases each …vote separately, judging based on your own philosophies and beliefs. There are also other very minor parties in the United States. (MORE)

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 no…t 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. (MORE)
If you mean Ronald Reagan, he started out a Democrat, but later became a Republican.
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 themselves the Anti-Federalists in opposition to the dominant Federalist Party that founded the new United States government. Th…e 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.

The south wasoriginally a Democratic stronghold, upon the Democratic Partyannouncing their support for the prospect of Civil Rights, a numberof Southern Democrats broke off from the national party and formedtheir own segregationist Dixiecrat Party. This schism inthe Democratic Party was mostly heal…ed 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.

The Democratic Party was founded in 1792 by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, sixty-two years before the Republican Party was founded in 1854 by anti-slavery activists and modernizers. Democrats are generally more liberal. They believe in a larger federal government, and often implement tax plans …to try to help the less privileged. They tend to believe the government must look for the greater good above the individual person in terms of well-fare and do what is necessary to make the populace more "equal". They assert that the values our country holds must evolve over time, and, therefore, tend to support such controversial choices as Pro Choice and gay marriage. Republicans are generally more conservative. They believe that the answers do not lay with the government generally, but rather with the people. They want less government interference and tend to believe more strongly in property rights and less strongly in well-fare rights, holding economic equity above equality. Many republicans are religious and tend to hold to the morals characterizing the Founding Fathers, which results in general disapproval of abortions and, for some, gay marriage. (MORE)

Because the state of Mississippi does not offer registered voter statistics by party, we must judge either from primary elections (to see how many voters their are from both parties) or from general elections. Through primary elections we conclude that Mississippi is a state dominated by the Democr…atic Party. In the 2007 Mississippi Governor election, the Democratic Primary had a total of about 450,000 voters compared to about 197,000 voters of the Republican Primary. Also, in the 2008 Presidential Election, the Mississippi Democratic Party Primary had a total of about 429,000 voters compared to about 145,000 voters of the Republican party. Whereas in general elections we conclude that Mississippi is a state dominated by the Republican party. In the 2008 Presidential election the Republican candidate (John McCain) received about 725,000 votes while the Democratic candidate (Barack Obama) received about 555,000 votes. The total voter turnout for the election was about 1,290,000 voters. This is significantly larger than the voter turnout for state primaries such as the primaries for the 2007 Governor election where there was a total of about 650,000 voters, which is almost half the amount of voters that voted in the presidential election. This would support the theory that the state of Mississippi has a larger voter turnout in general elections because voters do not have to vote in affiliation with a party; evidently showing how it is more likely that there are more unaffiliated or independent voters in the state of Mississippi than there are Democratic and Republican voters.

Einstein was neither a Democrat or Republican, he was a realist, he was a free thinker, a, "Great Spirit." Einstein said, quote: " Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities.
