Thomas Jefferson’s and Alexander Hamilton’s viewpoints during the 1790’s and the 1800’s were very different but sort of similar. Jefferson wanted the government to be run by the people of the U.S. while Hamilton wanted the wealthy class to run it, Jefferson wanted strong state government, Hamilton wanted strong federal government. But one thing that stood out to the people was Hamilton wanted a loose/lenient interpretation of the constitution as Jefferson wanted a strict one. During the 1700’s-1800’s, despite the fact Philadelphia was the nation’s temporary capital, U.S. Congress met difficulties and fears that tested the strength of the Constitution and the republic it built.
In the early stages of our country, Alexander Hamilton played a key role in developing a unified government which portrayed the early republican conservative values. He aspired to abolish slavery in support of human freedoms, as did many of his colleagues. However his ideas regarding the new government did not gain their full support. Hamilton was not unknown for his political theories; he was a practical man who was able to articulate his ideas into practice. Alexander Hamilton’s ideas of government were morally realistic, grounded in the belief that people prioritized themselves above all else; people are selfish.
Hamilton’s understanding of a successful economy allowed him to make decisions that would benefit the country.

[The Democratic Republicans] were determined to oppose the banking system, which would ruin the credit and honor of the Nation”, as he clearly has the nation’s best interest at heart. The Democratic Republican feared corruption, but they overlooked that their rights are protected in the Constitution and
For example, if the president had all the power over everyone they would be able to do whatever they want and make laws that maybe no one agrees with. Next, if the power is divided and shared between people, then there will be a strong central government. John Madison presented this idea. When there is a strong central government then it means that the government would have a strong middle, which can guard against tyranny because it keeps the government successful and strong.
After the American Revolutionary War, many Americans were opposed to the idea of a strong central government. They saw the idea of a strong centralized government as a gateway back into the familiar tyrannical government and abuse of power that they had just fought so hard to free themselves of. The idea of creating a new Constitution was unnecessary to some because the Articles of Confederation were already in place. The non-supporters of the newly proposed Constitution called themselves “Anti- Federalist.” Naturally, many of the supporters of the new Constitution felt that it was very much needed and they felt as if the Articles of Confederation were not strong enough to functionally run the government.
He ran for reelection and was going against his personal enemy Henry Clay, who was representing the Whig Party. This party strongly supported the Second Bank and so Clay urged Biddle to apply for a new charter. Even though this passed both houses without any trouble, Jackson vetoed it. Jackson soon defeated Clay in the election and began to make his own changes to the bank. He ordered his treasury secretaries to remove federal deposits from the bank and to place them in 23 state banks so that he could destroy the Second Bank.
What values of a person makes that person a real good leader? A person who can encourage and tries to stay in a good mood with everyone? Or a leader who pursuit only what is right?

Opinions based on this argument is likely to be divided into two.

The founders of the United States did their best to create a government that would not allow erroneous decisions to greatly harm the nation. They set a percent of presidents being politically sound and well-known; their beliefs for how the nation should be handled were essential to their campaign. President Andrew Jackson, however, did not follow this system, instead winning primarily by his personality and popularity amongst the common American. While his actions in office often appeared to be for the people, most had a hidden selfish side to them that he easily covered up. With the election of 1828, Jackson radically changed American politics, focusing them more on public appearance and personal character than on intelligence and political views, making personality just as, if not more important than the actual politics of a political term.
The first being that an individual is pro-income tax because they feel that the government should be heavily and actively involved in societal matters which comes mostly from a democratic outlook. From this point of view a person would be in favor of the redistribution tax system that allows money to be redistributed from the wealthy to the poor.

Lastly, and the final category, is that the person is uninterested either way.
Washington as King would have gotten rid of slavery, give money to the poor and sick, and pay his Continental Army what congress has promised them. If Washington was King he would not live in a fancy castle. He would live in a house like his people and would sacrifice rather than reject. George Washington is a bright man and
Alexander Hamilton once said “ The people are turbulent and changing; they seldom change or determine right. ”(The American Journey, pg.292). This means that the people in his party thought that the normal citizens of the nation weren’t capable of making productive or orderly decisions for government. They believed that the higher status, wealthy, educated men should run the public office and that they would make trustworthy decisions that would
