Reasons why Thomas Jefferson is the best candidate.
The main reasons why he is the best.
Thomas Jefferson was a man that realized the country was in enough debt already, so he thought that we should lower taxes and tariffs, not raise them. He also believed that the people and states should rule this country not the central government, like the federalist believed the central government should rule the country. Most of all he wanted to increase trade with France which would help the economy with all the debt we had.
