Yeah, we don't need political parties like they have in Britain!
Yeah, we don't need political parties!
If I could not go to heaven but with a party, I would not go at all.
I thought I said no political parties.
We need state government, not central
No, that gives the government to much power, are you looking for a monarchy? Not to mention how its unconstitutional
We need a strong National Bank as well as a central government so that we can create a strong economy.
When President Washington first started his presidency, there were no political parties. The people were opposed to the idea of because of things called faction in Britain. Factions were opposing groups in political parties, who schemed to gain favors from the government.Thomas Jefferson once said "If I could not go to heaven but with a party, I would not go at all.
How can you support the british , and turn your back on the french, they were our allies in our fight for this country, we need to support them , as they have supported us
Britain is our main trading partner and we need their support, and we can only get that by supporting them in this fight.
Deep divisions started to form in the cabinet. Despite what the president said two parties formed around two men. Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton. Hamilton led the Federalists and Jefferson led the Republicans. The two disagreed on many things such agriculture, government, and how they interpreted the constitution
Are all these goods yours? you're gonna have to pay the tariff if you want them shipped.
I have to pay for these to be shipped?! This is outrageous!!!!
The Federalists believed in as state government and a national bank, as they had a loose interpretation of the Constitution. The Republicans had a stricter interpretation of the Constitution. The wanted most things such as government and bank to be done at a state level so people could be more independent.
we need to put emphasis on agriculture. Farmers are the backbone of society. we can have all the power in the hands of rich merchants!
No, manufacturing and trading are crucial to growing our cities!
Britain and France were in a war. Hamilton and the Federalists supported Britain because Britain was a valuable trading partner. Jefferson and the Republicans supported France because France was the first allies of the U.S .
Tariffs are a tax on importing an exporting goods, the Republicans were mostly made up of farmers, plantation owners, and craftsmen. They did not support tariffs because it required them to pay to ship their goods, which is how most of them made their money. The Federalists were pro tariff because they were made up of wealthy merchants and manufacturers, who would benefit from the tariffs.
The Federalists believed strongly in manufacturing and trade, as the north had big cities and many merchants and manufacturers. The Republicans who were mainly farmers believed strongly in farming and agriculture. The fear was that manufacturing would put to much power in a small group of the wealthy. This is another place where the parties disagreed. Who had the power. Hamilton believed the educated should lead, while Jefferson said everyone should have political power.
