The first two political parties in America are the Federalists and Anti-Federalists. Several political parties were formed under these two first political parties. However, despite several groups of political parties exist, two groups of political parties are popular: the democrats and the republicans. Different than the view of the democrats, the republicans believe in citizen's rights and freedom, in economic opportunity of a nation, in a nation's national defense, and in an education that is under a parental control. .
Firstly, the republicans believe that the United States were founded on the fundamental principle that individuals have certain rights and freedoms. They believe that the individuals' rights and freedoms cannot be violated and may be restricted only to the degree essential to maintain the rights of others. This means each and individual can enjoy the rights and freedoms of the country without diminishing the rights of others. For example, one have the rights to own a gun to use for protection and pleasure. .
The democrats believe that the U.S. Founding Fathers did not really mean what they said when they guaranteed certain constitutional rights. The right to freedom of religious expression, the right to keep and bear arms, and the right to retain the use of private property "these are the constitutional rights which the democrats believe. This means that the government can take away these constitutional rights from the citizens. Democrats also believe that some must give up a portion of their rights and freedoms that others may enjoy those same rights and freedoms. The ability to pray in school publicly was demolish. The praying in school was eliminated since some of the individuals have different religion from the other individuals. Some people are offended whenever somebody would pray their own prayer out loud. Thus, the democrats believe that praying in school must not be tolerated.
