The follower of Thomas Jefferson and Madison called all their parties the Republicans, or the Democratic Republicans. The Republicans wanted limited government. They feared that a strong government would endanger people's liberties.

Thomas Jefferson and Madison, however, believed in a strict interpretation of the Constitution. They accepted the idea of implied powers. They believed that implied powers are those powers that are "absolutely necessary" for Congress to exercise its stared power.

Nevertheless, in 1793 Thomas Jefferson was so unhappy that he resigned as secretary of state. Then in 1795, Hamilton resigned too, as secretary of the treasury. The rival political parties moved further apart. Later in 1769, John Adams became president and Thomas Jefferson became vice president
