Fact of the Day: Oldest Political Party

If counted from it's origins as the Democratic-Republican party in 1791, the Democratic Party of the United States is the oldest political party in the world still standing. Even the foundations of the modern Democratic party in 1828 still makes it one of the oldest political parties in the world.
