Republicanism refers to both the advocacy for this form of government and the ideology of this movement.
In England a republicanism evolved that was not wholly opposed to monarchy, but rather thinkers such as Thomas More and John Milton saw a monarchy firmly constrained by law as compatible with republicanism.
The Republican Party was established in 1854 by a coalition of former Whigs, Northern Democrats, and Free-Soilers who opposed the expansion of slavery and held a Hamiltonian vision for modernizing the UnitedStates.
Republicans say that progessively higher marginal rate income taxes is inherently punitive and discourages entrepreneurship while Democrats say that high earners got their money from society and therefore owe society a larger share of their income.
In the early 20th century, the traditional symbol of the Republican Party in Midwestern states such as Indiana and Ohio was the eagle, as opposed to the Democratic rooster.
