Very interesting. Did you note that in the 1800-1824 elections one candidate was identified with the Democratic-Republican party? What does this tell you?
In the beginning, the Federalists wanted a strong centralized govt. The D-R were more states rights. In general, the Feds became the Whigs, which became the Republican Party.
The D-R became simply known as the Dem's.
Funny how, basically, the two parties switched platforms.
Or have they switched platforms? Anyway, the platform is meaningless. "All politics is local" and no local politician runs on the national platform. Both parties want big government because both are owned by the same big businesses. It takes big government to enable big business to steal big sums and get away with it.
