The democratic republican party was founded by
Thomas Jefferson and James Madison
The democratic republican party formed in opposition
to the federalist party.
This party wanted decentralized government to prevent
the consolidation of power over citizens
The main reason the party's reluctance for government power
was due to the previous rule over the colonies by the British.
The British ruled over the colonies without representation and taxed
Without representation the colonies were powerless
to change the laws imposed on them.
this lead to the democratic republicans to take many
precautions in order to avoid the creation of a
Washington was guided by both the federalist and the
democratic republicans.He did this because of his non-partisan status.
With Washington's presidency he had both parties participate in
order to find the best possible action.
Although he had representatives from each party he often
favored the federalists..
Federalist believed the U.S. would need a strong central government to
survive and thrive
The democratic republicans would often be the representatives of
states interests and would counter the ideas of federalists.
even though he appointed political party members to his cabinet
Washington believed that political parties would only divide the nation

intervention in the economy and/or the lives of citizens.
This party's philosophy is inspired by the principles
of the Democratic republicans
fear of a strong centralized government that can abuse it`s
power and oppress its people still exists today.
Much like the democratic republicans this party prioritizes
preventing the gain of power and removing powers of the
federal government deemed to be overreaching
Unlike the democratic republicans The Libertarian party`s
surrounding philosophy is not centralized nor dose it have a
single figurehead with many libertarians
beliving in allowing for varying amounts
of government control.
