    •  With a hyphen - "Democratic-Republicans" (0+ / 0-)

      which was rather unwieldy to say, so in practice it was shortened to one or the other. (Jefferson himself preferred the term "Republican".)

      If it's
      Not your body,
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      And it's
      None of your damn business!
