Compare and contrast the views of the Federalist party and the Democratic-Republican party on at least three different historical issues.

So far I have a basic information on the Federalist party, but barely any on the Democratic-Republican party, and I don't know 3 different historical issues...

Federalists were generally well educated and land owners. They supported the proposed constitution, and wanted a strong government as well as strong executive branch; while the anti-Federalists wanted a weaker central government. Federalists did not want a bill of rights. They thought the new constitution was sufficient; whereas anti-Federalists demanded a bill of rights. They, anti-Federalists, believed the nation was far too large for the national government to respond to the concerns of people on a state and local basis.

Democratic-Republicans, on the other hand, opposed the national bank, were pro-French in foreign policy, and wanted a strict interpretation of the Constitution and a weak central government.
