Hamilton VS. Jefferson
I don't care! I only go by the constitution!
If we just ask for taxes it will improve the country!
The French Revolution
Meanwhile in the 1700’s Jefferson and Hamilton are at each other's throats. Hamilton's plan has 3 parts to it 1. Pay off all war debts 2. Raise government revenue 3. Create a national Bank. Jefferson had a different idea in mind, he only goes by the constitution because it says not to make new laws. Jefferson had a VERY strict view of the constitution.
It was about 20 years later after the Revolutionary War when the United States government faced a small rebellion by some of it’s own citizens. Hamilton put a tax on Whiskey produce in the United States and Congress instituted it in 1791. The citizens didn't like the idea of taxation. The farmers in western Pennsylvania refined and profited from its sale, showed that they were opposed to that idea. July 1794 a force of Whiskey rebels attacked and destroyed the home of a tax inspector. When the federal force arrived the rebellion collapsed.
The French Revolution happened at the same time when George Washington's first administration started. Jefferson opposed the idea of neutrality but Hamilton supported it. Washington agreed with Hamilton and issued the proclamation of neutrality that blocked war supplies in America. France was not happy with it because they helped America with the war of independence by giving them foreign aid.
