Although they would probably kick both of their arses, which party do you think the founders would favor most. Why?!?!
Depends. George Washington didn't want foreign entanglements. Kinda democrats. Thomas Jefferson. Kinda moderate/republican. John Adams kinda democrat. Overall--mix/democrat.
Most of them would be Republicans with the exceptions of John Adams, Aaron Burr, and Alexander Hamilton.
On a lot of variables.
On what variables
I think the founders would have learned towards libertarianism.
Leaned, not learned sorry
Republicans because they're adamant about keeping the constitution a functioning document.
Focusing on politicians, the Republicans, because there are at least a few of them who aren't complete morons.
Republicans because at least SOME of them respect the Constitution and believe in a small government that protects liberties instead of imposing tyrannies.
"I have been thinking that I would make a proposition to my Republican friends... that if they will stop telling lies about the Democrats, we will stop telling the truth about them." --Adlai Stevenson
How is Democrats being in favor of big government, welfare programs, high taxes, and ignoring the constitution (things the founders would despise) lies? I would love to hear the truth about the Republicans from the Democrats. That would be a first.
Wow, Time, keep drinking that Kool-Aide!
Time that's not evidence that the founders would have like the democrats that's a mere ad hominem
I know but I like the quote....
And where do you get off that you respect the constitution and more then the Democrats??
The Patriot Act? Suppressing voter registration? Civil rights issues?
We don't rip up the 2nd amendment. And we don't use the NSA to Illegally spy on americans without proper cause, and we appreciate states rights with the 10th amendment instead of giving everything to the federal government, like a socialist state.
It's a matter of interpretation. Do you really think that NSA allegations only went on with this administration? Please!
Time: I hate to break it to you but your party is the guilty one in the civil rights movement.
Democrats were responsible for civil rights problems. For example, KKK- founded by Democrats. Martin Luther King - Republican.
That's all true, I remember the Dixiecrat's and that time. But things flipped around in 1964. I'm sure if MLK had lived he would have become a Democrat as all of his followers did. A good point anyway but times do change?
Well that's purely hypothetical.
m.youtube.com/watch?v=x-oS4WLui3Q I rest my case with this.
Skinner; not hypothetical... Fact. Ask someone like John Lewis. Most all southern blacks were republicans back then. The reasons are obvious.
A Fly; bill whittle....really!!!
But where way off subject.. John Adams would have been a democrat. :)
Yes, really Bill Whittle, and I bet the nation's debt in cash you didn't even watch it.
That would be like asking me to watch John Hannity....no way bro!
You're right he would after all Adams was a monarchist who sought a powerful government and passéd the alien and sedition acts
Sean Hannity* and I thought liberals were open minded to all views. Guess not, btw he's not presenting opinion in that video, he's presenting proven historical facts.
Him too :)
Republicans because they have actually read the constitution.
I would state my opinion but I would rather not be attacked hahaha
Voice your opinion freely. I have yet to meet an uncivil debater.
Well. On SOH anyways
Ha! Trust me, you'll meet plenty.
Yeah, yesterday I was told to go move to a fascist country and keep my opinions to myself, all because I said it was sad people tend to show a lack of respect for our country nowadays. Hahaha
Democrats. The founding fathers believed that politics was a process in which rational voters and representatives calmly sorted out what would be best for the entire community. Republicans are only interested in their ideology and winning.
And so the high taxes, the welfare programs, and the sweeping of the Constitution under the table would please them because...?
Republicans, size matters!
Republicans, because of small government.
Republicans, they at least pretend to respect the constitution.
