Storyboard Text

  • I think Jefferson had a better vision in terms of size of government, when it gets too big and powerful, people tend to want to bring that government down.
  • Hi there! My name is Thomas Jefferson, the very first secretary of state! As secretary of state, it is very important that I keep my country safe! That is why i thought that our country needs to put more power in state government and less power in federal government!
  • It is very important to strictly interpret the constitution, so that the government doesn't get too powerful.
  • Our economy should revolve around farming and collecting raw goods. This would make France a great trade partner to get us what we need.
  • personally, I think alexander had a longer-lasting vision for the economy, farming raw goods wouldn't sustain an economy for long.
  • Hello, I'm Alexander Hamilton, Secretary of treasury. Because of my position, I believe that all the money is with the manufacturing jobs. This is also why we should trade with Britain.
  • If we do have a manufacturing-based economy, Britain would be a great partner.
  • Also I think that Hamilton had a better vision for trade. Britain might have been interested in trading because of our previous connections.
  • Sometimes, the common man doesn't make the best decisions, that is why we need educated men in the government and to increase government size.
  • Overall, I think Hamilton had better visions for the USA. His manufacturing based economy would eventually allow for the country to excel and grow. His idea of strong government wasn't the best, but his idea that the constitution should be loosely interpreted still holds up today.
