Storyboard Text

  • What madness! Go to Paris and talk with the minister of foreign affairs! Hurry!
  • Mr. President! The French are seizing our ships and Federalists want war! What shall we do?
  • You may talk to the minister if you loan $10 million dollars and pay a bribe of $250,000.
  • Nonsense! No, no, not a sixpence! 
  • Millions for defense, not one cent for tribute!
  • We are cutting off ties with France and that is final!
  • Hm...Most of the Democratic-Republicans are aliens...I must stop them from saying bad things about me!
  • Mr.President! Democratic -Republicans are writing criticisms about you because of our actions with the French!
  • You two are in jail because of your criticisms about me. I will not tolerate it!
  • Those stupid Alien and Sedition Acts! They are violating my rights! They must be repealed!
  • The Democratic-Republicans tried to fight the acts, but did not succeed until two years later when they took control of the government and repealed the acts.
  • We have states' rights and the federal government cannot interfere with them! Your acts violate the Constitution!
