Hamilton's 3 financial plan were paying all was depts, raising government revenue, and creating a national bank. Jefferson disagreement was that he believed the constitution discouraged the power of the federal government. Also believed that the constitution didn't give the government the power to set up a bank.
Im stepping down Hamilton
During the whiskey rebellion, they taxed whiskey. People got very mad about it, and started a rebellion. This whole fus was all of the problem of there whiskey getting taxed. The Washington endeds up militia even though he doesn't like it. They needed to show that the government had power to enforce laws.
What is this French?!
The French Revolution is were the french wanted to have a revolution just like the U.S.! Jefferson thought of if they were to attack it will be bad for liberty everywhere. Hamilton thought British was to important to risk. This put the U.S. in an awkward situation because french was our ally for the revolutionary war. America did not side with either because they could not risk going into war.
Alien and Sedition act
Why are there so many laws! Aren't we all immigrants?!
Washingtons retirement, Jefferson stepped down his position so he could run for president. Washigton dissides to step down from being president so that Jefferson could run. When Washington told Hamilton the news Hamilton was very confused on why Washington would do that. Wahigton worred them of two things, don't have political parties and and foreign affairs.
So Jefferson can run for president
In 1797, President Adams heard the arguments about what was happening with the French and Americans. About the French getting mad at french for r trading with the British. the french and british were in war in that time. Later on it would would be called XYZ Affair. XYZ affair is when 3 French ministers that send a letter for 250,000 bribe for just to talk with them. Also give 10 million loan to the French. The American dd not like this because they were looting the ships.
The Alien and Sedition acts were four laws that were made for immigrants who weren't citizen yet. It harder for people who are not americans to vote. If they said anything bad or wrote anything bad about the government. Also to become a citizen you needed to 5-14 years. Arrest any disloyal aliens. The democratic didn't like it and repealed it.
