    The Classical Daddies would be members of the American Revolutionary Party.

    If it didn't exist, they'd form one.

    Ideologically speaking.

    They'd fall largely within the Republicans and Democrats, with perhaps a few going full ideological and going a 3rd party.

    Anyone naively suggesting that the Founding Fathers, as some monolithic entity, would largely comprise of only one party or the other is doing nothing but fooling themselves to feed their own political ego imho. Contrary to what some people romanticize, not all the Founding Fathers agreed completely with each other on the role of government and the methods the country should move forward. They would split amongst multiple parties and likely have issues with many of them as well.
