I'm Alexander Hamilton and I lead the Federalist Party. I want a new national government that have complete political authority. I disliked state governments and believed that they should be eliminated entirely.
I have a vision for reshaping the American economy, a federal charter for a national financial institution. I propose a Bank of the United States.
I favored a loose interpretation. I believe that the perfect union would be one in which there were no states at all.
I'm Thomas Jefferson and I lead the Democratic-Republican Party. I think the states should charter banks that could issue money. I believe that the Constitution did not give the national government the power to establish a bank.
I want an agrarian federal republic, a strict interpretation of the Constitution, and strong state governance. I believe in the principle that “the earth belongs to the living and not to the dead."
I represent Virginia. I think U.S should make its money through agriculture (farming). The state government should have the most power.
