    Liberal
    Progressive
    or Conservative.

    Put it in context of what each party were at the time.

    I figure either liberal or progressive since conservatives wanted to stay with King George.

    They were Conservative fighting for freedom, liberty and the right to self govern. Librul Progressives would have blown King George for free health care

    There is a saying that I think it would be helpful for you to learn. It goes 'it is better to say nothing and be thought a fool, than open your mouth and confirm it'.

    The Jeffersonian wing of the founders were classical liberals, and the nation was founded on classical liberal ideas. The Hamiltonian wing was conservative, and basically had the final say.

    No. The Federalist Party, the big government party, were conservatives. Even Hamilton couldn't have been considered a Progressive.
