The Republican Democracy Party is a charter-based corporation (v46 Amended) established on March 4th, 2005 by Robert A. Ficalora using the Kentucky and Virginia resolves of 1798. The English republican thinking of men like Thomas Jefferson and his friend the incomparable John Taylor of Caroline figure prominently in the principles of government presented. They were DEMOCRATIC REPUBLICANS, a phrase that the RDP has trademarked for use by the party membership and candidates for elected office. This site is currently being remade as a database registry for the RDP membership and caucus resolution process.
