Washington would see that individual communities and movements have created change for themselves, while working against others. It’s amazing what could be done if we stopped working against each other. While political parties aren’t going away, which would be to Washington’s dismay, he would suggest that the next president figure out a way to stop the two main parties, the Democratic Party and the Republican Party, from being convinced their beliefs are the “correct” beliefs. If we cannot get rid of political parties, the best we can do is unite them. The only way to change our country is by working with each other, not against each other.
This can guard against tyranny because when one person gains too much power, then tyranny is almost guaranteed because there would not be an easy way to stop them from doing only what they desire. 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.
However, Hamilton, our first secretary of state, Thomas Jefferson usually never agreed with each other, but that didn’t stop Hamilton to create our first National Bank that was submitted on December 14, 1790. Unfortunately, not everybody liked Hamilton’s ideas because in 1804 Hamilton had died. (“Alexander Hamilton”). After Hamilton's death in 1804, Jonathan Dayton who was elected a seat in our first Congress, he still supported “Hamilton’s financial program” and was “pressed for suppression of the Whiskey Rebellion” (“Jonathan Dayton”). In the end, Hamilton showed leadership by creating our first National Bank, fought in our war like Odysseus fought for his men on his journey home from the Trojan, and wrote two-third of our new
Federalists knew that another self-governing government would only lead to a weak system just like the Articles lead them to failure. Thomas R. Frazier said, “View these things, fellow citizens, and then say that we do not require a new, a protecting, and efficient federal government if you can.” (Doc #1) Frazier is stating that America is in great need of a federal government, that they need educated and knowledgeable people to lead their country. He also means that in order to maintain their freedom and independence they would need a government to protect their rights they fought for. Creating three branches to avoid congress from becoming too powerful and keep everything under control was a much better way than having just one branch like in the Articles of Confederation. Another federalist named Jonathan Elliot said , “ … it is the opinion of this Convention that certain amendments and alterations in the said Constitution would remove the fears and quiet the apprehensions of many of the good people of the commonwealth.” (Doc #6) Elliot is stating that with few alterations, limiting the Constitutions power and allowing the states to make some decisions would change the Anti-Federalists mind and therefore they would create the Bill of rights to limit the
One of the foundering fathers of this great country Thomas Jefferson merges different point of view so that he could present the colonist’s injustice as a single voice. Hyneman conveys great point in which he argues that liberty is something that of a blessing and like many Colonists recognize that absolute liberty is not obtainable without a form of government. Also in Hyneman piece, Thomas Jefferson and his fellow colonist were worn-out of being treated less than the British people therefore Thomas’ declaration of independence emphasizes that all men are equal in which it was embodied by his people furthermore they would no longer consent the tax proposed by England. As know by most, the declaration of independence was a written document
Not having any proof of his involvement or leadership of this rebellion, Gallatin was not arrested. Gallatin went on to hold the position of Secretary of the Treasury under Thomas Jefferson and James Madison for thirteen years. He was heavily involved, if not responsible for reducing the national debt and was against internal taxes. Gallatin would have been considered a strict constructionist because he believed that the less involvement the government had, the better. He also recommended that the First Bank of the United States be re-chartered, insisting that it could help stabilize the economy.
Hence Federalists came up with the Bill of Rights as a way to get the Constitution ratified and for people to really see a needed change. The Bill Of Rights which lists specific prohibitions on governmental power, lead the Anti-Federalists to be less fearful of the new Constitution . This guaranteed that the people would still remain to have rights, but the strong central government that the country needed would have to be approved. The 1804 Map of the nation shows that even after the ratification of the United States Constitution there still continued to be “commotion” and dispute in the country. (Document 8) George Washington stated that the people should have a say in the nation and government and everything should not be left to the government to decide.
We can 't have a free government where the people cannot make the laws they are governed by. •Experience teaches people the need for being careful when creating free governments. •The representation should understand what people want and they should chase after the happiness of the people. •To create a new Constitution, the people in power should have the same goals from the people because the people give the ones in charge power. They only want to do so is by fair representation.
Thomas Jefferson’s tone in the first paragraph is objective, because it addresses the universal problem, not just Americans vs. British. This introduction is over the rights people have to overthrow an unjust government, “When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands” (167). Jefferson is not trying to persuade anyone to revolt, but is instead making the revolution seem as a natural outcome. The words “necessary” and “declare” aid set the tone for the introduction, because both of those words hold a stronger meaning in the Declaration Of Independence. “Necessary” is utilized to imply that the revolution was inevitable, Jefferson claims that the revolution is fate and that there is no
In some ways, Holmes’s approach resembles Edmund Burke’s political philosophy. Burke opposed the French Revolution because it embodied radical, abrupt, violent change. Instead he favored incremental change with due regard for tradition and social and political institutions. The government of human beings, he argued, is a matter not of applying cold rules and principles, but of attending to warm relationships and attachments to produce the strongest and best unified community. Change, Burke thought, should be
