Disagrees with a strong national government!

Jefferson believes in states rights not a strong national government.

"My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government. "

Believes in peoples rights!

Believes the people should rule.

"When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty."


Against Alien and Sedition acts!

Thomas Jefferson is 100% against the Alien and Sedition acts.

"For my own part I consider the [Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798] as merely an experiment on the American mind to see how far it will bear an avowed violation of the constitution."

Supports farmers and the common people!

Jefferson believes that Americas economy should be based on farming not industry.

" When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe, we shall become as corrupt as Europe."
