The Democrat Republicans & The Libertarian Party

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
00:13
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 them heavily. 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 tyrannical government.

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..

This party's philosophy is inspired by the principles of the Democratic republicans
