Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson wanted the states to have a say in the government. He also wanted the people to get to vote on what the laws and want states banks and farmers. He supported France because they helped us in the war. He crated the Kentucky and Virginia resolutions. From the moment that Jefferson was inaugurated, he began what he described as the Revolution of 1800. This was his attempt to repeal major actions that he felt the Federalists had taken to needlessly strengthen the hand of the Federal government. This included allowing the Alien and Sedition Act to lapse and the repeal of the federal whiskey tax. For all Jefferson's changes, his Presidency was more one of stability than of change
