Storyboard Text

  • Who Should Run Our Country?
  • I don't want the rich to govern! It could end up like Britain with a King and Queen!
  • Strength of National Government
  • Yahhhh! We get state power!
  • The states can have more power than the government so nobody can rule!
  • Economy
  • Agriculture so we can support ourselves! Just use slaves to do all the farming!
  • Jefferson favored democracy. He didn't want the 'rich white people' to govern because then it could lead to a monarchy. Jefferson wanted a government that would govern the least amount. He wanted this so America wouldn't become like Britain with a King.
  • Who Should Run Our Country?
  • Jefferson wanted the government to have very limited power so that the states could still have their liberties. So that they couldn't end up like Britain and have a King that would make all the decisions. He wanted small so that everyone felt like they had a say.
  • Strength of National Government

  • Hamilton wanted the government to have much more power than the states did. He wants a large powerful government because he liked how Britain governed and they had large powerful governments.
  • I want the government to be large with a bunch of power!
