  • yeah..only for the right price
  • hee hee hee
  • how 'bout like, $250,000
  • Hello, I would like to speak with you minister please.
  • President Adams, they want $250,000 
  • THIS IS UNACCENPTABLE!!! I'm writing a complaint
  • WAR!?!?!?!?!?!
  • They won't give us the  money 'cause they're OFFENDED by it! THIS MEANS WAR!!!
  • The French were mad at the fact that we made Jay's Treaty so when we wanted to negotiate with one of their ministers, they tried to bribe us.
  • They don't want to go to war with us 'cause they're to scared! They should apologize to us foralmost starting a war.
  • Dat's right! they must apologize, give us money, and pay us the bribe
  • When John Adams heard about this he immediately sent France a letter about how he was deeply insulted and offended  he was with the bribe and how what they did was a denial of a right
  • Since France is known for being successful after every war, lets not go war with them
  • agreed
  • When France received the letter, they took this as a sign that we anted to go to war
  •  So, I'm gonna make some laws that make it harder for new aliens to vote, especially the dangerous ones...
  • We then discussed if we should or shouldn't go to war with France, we ended up declining war with France.
  • We then sent one of our federalists to go negotiate and instead of meeting up with the minister, X,Y, and Z came and told us what they wanted. This lead to the Quasi War which was undeclared and took place in the sea.
  • John Adam then made the Alien laws, that were mainly aimed at the French and the Irish 'cause they were pro-French. John Adams noticed that there were some things in the papers that were against the government and tried to take away part of our first amendment. Which was how the Alien and Sedition Acts started.
