I'm not helping either of you because we are neutral
No, help us!!
The cabinet meeting that took place to discuss Hamilton and Jefferson made America the way it is today. Hamilton was the secretary of treasury so he was in vharge of taking care of the money, his ides was simple and effective: Make a national bank, raise government revenues, ans pay off war debt. Jefferson opposed this plan because the constitution said nothing about a national bank. Hamilton ended up winning and that is still how our government is run today.
The whisky rebellion all started when the government put a tax on whiskey. The farmers did not like this because they had grown this and wanted to make money off of it. So the farmers started the Whisky Rebellion. They started to beat up tax collectors, threatened an attack on Pittsburgh, and even brought back the tar and feather thing. Washington immediately sent about about 13,000 troops to stop this. He made it very clear that he was in charge and he didn't want this to happen again.
Four or five years after the Whisky rebellion the French Revolution started. Just like the colonist and the British, it was the French against Britain. France and Britain both wanted our help . After discussing it Washington decided it would be best to remain neutral. That means that they didn't help either side. Since they were now able to pass laws they passed a law that said they forbid the U.S from helping either side.
