Election of 1800!
Adams vs. Jefferson
Thomas Jefferson is the way to go!
- Jefferson was against the Alien and Sedition Acts, he thought that these laws were unconstitutional and that they were taking peoples basic rights away.
- Jefferson also feared that if the military was increased, they could be used against us to take over and our country would turn into a dictatorship.
- Jefferson was all for supporting France. They had just helped us win our Independence from Britain and they were experiencing what we were experiencing, they had also just won their Independence. There were a few problems, like the X, Y, Z Affair, when they were attacking our ships, but the were still a better choice than Britain.
