Now I will not have to ride all the way to New York!
But the land is a swamp land!
It is official!
Since the South didn't want to help pay for the North's debt, Hamilton made a deal with them. If the capital moved south then they would help pay.
Hamilton believed that the U.S should be a strong central government (more power to the government). He also believed that manufacturing and business would be good for America's future.
It's perfectly fine to do it because the Constitution never said we couldn't
Jefferson thought that there should be more power to the states. Jefferson also thought that farming would be good for America's future.
The Constitution never said this was allowed. So we will find a way to fix it without breaking the rules.
Hamilton wanted a National Bank while Jefferson was against it. At the end they compromised and said they would have a National Bank for a little bit and then if it wasn't working then they would get rid of it.
Hamilton was for loose construction. Loose construction means if the constitution didn't say they couldn't do it, it technically means they can do it. This is how Hamilton thought.
That is breaking the rules. You really shouldn't do this
Jefferson on the other hand acted by strict construction. If the constitution didn't say they could do it, then they can't do it.
