Although Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton did fight bitterly over issues of constitutional interpretation in the 1790s; the policies if the Jeffersonian Republican Presidents Jefferson and Madison in 1801-1807 reflected the beliefs of the Federalist Hamilton. John Adams was a federalist and liked the ideas of Alexander Hamilton while James Madison was a Jeffersonian. Although, Adams also agreed with Madison because the Jeffersonian were changing and becoming "nearer to his system".

The Early Jeffersonians believed that Madison should be in office because his ideas also reflected their opinions. John Adams urged to have Madison become elected because he was a man that would make a change, a change that Adams would be able to agree with. Madison would restore the taxes that the early Jeffersonians never thought should have been repealed. Madison would also do something about trade by sea. (Doc. G) Alexander Hamilton believed that is good to have some debt which is a reason he supported the national bank which the Jeffersonians disagreed with. They believed the bank was not delegated to the United States in the way Thomas Jefferson understood the constitution. (Doc. A) The Jeffersonians didn't agree with many of the ideas of Hamilton, not only the national bank and debt, but also loose laws. In the resolutions of the Constitution there were loose laws left to be interpreted by states which Thomas Jefferson believed to be a dangerous exercise of power to leave an indirect law in the constitution. A belief that lasted was the military enforcement; Jefferson didn't want to fight but he had to for the sake of the nation because they were being attacked by the British so he had to increase the military. (Page 233, Doc. E)

The Federalists had opposing view points compared to the Early Jeffersonians. Unlike the Jeffersonians, the Federalists saw that if the "loose laws" aren't enforced enough than there is no reason to keep them if the people

    Reform movements in the United States from 1825-1850 greatly benefited to expand democratic ideals that shape our nation today, but they also limited the expansion with some reforms. Reform movements took place in the North to fight off the forced labor and cruelty of slavery, and throughout the states, religious revivals and women rights movements arose. These reform movements expanded the democratic ideals by advocating an equal treatment for women and slaves while the religious revivals shaped moralities of men. The Temperance Movement limited the expansion of democratic ideals by attempting to reduce and prohibit the use of alcohol in the country. Many other reforms took place as the society began to rise, adding reforms to criminal punishments and immigration. This time of social and religious reforms slowly became democratic ideas that set the base for our government standards that we follow today.…

    Although Jefferson often showed a strong dislike for the Federalist laws and programs, when he took office he left many of the Federalist programs intact, and except for revoking the excise tax, the Hamiltonian system was mostly left as it was. However, this act of Jefferson’s went against many of the political beliefs held by his party and himself. Jefferson and Hamilton’s philosophies differed greatly in that Jefferson adhered to a weak central government, with most of the power in the hands of the states. He believed that the federal government’s power should be restrained and limited, so that it would not be able to become tyrannical or try and undermine the power of the states and the people.…

    They both stood for opposing political sides, Hamilton a solid federalist, while Jefferson was an anti-federalist, or republican. Their political differences helped shaped their separate images clearly throughout history. Hamilton believed that a strong central government was the key to the government’s success and had a loose interpretation of the constitution and thus concurred that civil liberties and other aspects of the constitution should at times, be restricted. Jefferson believed in a strict version of the constitution, he opposed of Hamilton’s creation of the national bank and believed it to be unconstitutional. As key additions to the government, they also had a different outlook on the people of the country. Jefferson maintained faith in the people, yet distrusted special privilege among them. Hamilton however, believed that the power should rest in the wealthy and educated and wished to raise voting qualifications.

Jefferson on the other hand, believed that agriculture alone should be the backbone of our economy.

He believed in the creation of the national bank and internal taxation, brought forth by the central government.…
