You can't make me pay taxes!!
You may Not be a supporter of the French Revolution!
Hamilton had a three step plan- paying off all war debt, raising government revenues, and creating a national bank. When it came to the constitution, Jefferson believed that the constitution discouraged the concentration of power in the federal government. Jefferson thought that the constitution didn't have enough power at the time to do so, but others did.
Washington and Hamilton thought that crushing the Whiskey Rebellion and enforcing the taxes would give them more power. They feared that if they didn't put an end to it, that it might undermine the new government. Once it all went down, Washington had proven that the gov. had power and the will to enforce laws.
The French Revolutionaries demanded liberty and equality. France declared war on Britain, Holland, and Spain. The war between France and Britain put the U.S. in and awkward position. France has always been U.S's allies, but Britain was the goods' traveler and trade route. Washington had declared U.S neutral- meaning "friendly" or "impartial."
