Your question is very confusing. The political parties were NOT what they are now. In fact, the Republican/Democrat idealism thing was completely reversed back during post Colonial times. Plus the fact that john Locke was English, not American. Plus he was an English philosipher, not a politition.

John Locke introduced the ideas of consent based government. Locke proposed that all men are born with the unalienable rights of life liberty and property and that government is meant to protect those rights. He contended that the only way for a government to correctly protect the rights of the people is for the people to vote for their own laws. This connects back to his main assertion that man is a reasonable and therefore is able to rule himself.
