Mostly the Anti-Federalists thought that the Constitution created too strong of a central government. They felt that the Constitution did not create a Federal government, but a single national government. They were afraid that the power of the states would be lost and that the people would lose their individual rights because a few individuals would take over. As a result, they proposed The Bill of Rights, to make sure the citizens were protected by the law. They believed that no Bill of Rights would be equal to no check on our
He believed this because he was a political writer and aristocrat who was born into these beliefs (7 pov). King Louis XIV wanted his people to follow the Catholic faith and do away with the Protestant religion; he revoked the Edict of Nantes. He forbid the exercise of the Protestant religion in any place or private house (8). All of these people go together because they had the same mind set on keeping the religion in one's state the same. Secondly, Kings and Priests in some states allowed some freedom but with limitations also in their states/cities.
He brought to public life a love of efficiency, order and organization. In response to the call of the House of Representatives for a plan for the "adequate support of public credit," he lay down and supported principles not only of the public economy, but of effective government Jefferson advocated a decentralized agrarian republic. He recognized the value of a strong central government in foreign relations, but he did not want it strong in other respects. Hamilton's great aim was more efficient organization, whereas Jefferson once said "I am not a friend to a very energetic government." Hamilton feared anarchy and thought in terms of order; Jefferson feared tyranny and thought in terms of freedom Hamilton pointed out that America must have credit for industrial development, commercial activity and the operations of government.
Hamilton was not opposed to cast aspersions against Burr, and was able to sway the majority of the House of Representatives to vote Jefferson into the highest office in the nation. Burr was infuriated with the actions of Hamilton. However, as the new Vice-President, he would have to bide his time to seek revenge. As John Adams had realized, Burr was soon put-off with the uselessness of the position of the Vice President. As Vice-President, Burr held no real powers, and those powers which he had influence over were only those which Jefferson bestowed upon him.
I could also use ethos by correlating it with Jefferson's statement that congress is cautious and reasonable men. Thomas Jefferson effectively used ethical appeal in the beginning of his manuscript, by asserting the statesmen that make up the Continental Congress are “men of good sense, good character, and good will.”(Jefferson) Ethos appeal needed to be used because Jefferson knew it was necessary the citizens and representatives understood the Continental Congress are competent and ethical in their actions. The writer also recognized the civilian populous would not support the Continental Congress if they believed them to be unethical and incompetent. How can this be used in future classes? Though out the rest college, I will have
Well first of all Wilson had a very moralistic foreign policy meaning that he made foreign decision based on what he believed. Wilson was a firm believer in Democracy so he had already made up his mind and what side to take on the war in disregard to what the people on the States thought. This is really important because the propaganda that goes along with pushing Wilson’s believes of pro-democracy and anti-communism and anti-monarchy has played an important role in WWI, WWII, The Cold War, and this idea even plays a strong role today and the view most Americans have specially over communism and countries that practice it. Lastly and probably and probably most importantly was the raise of Americanism during the little “hiccups” The states had with
The Anti-federalists thought only those worthy enough of life, liberty, and property, should have rights. The Federalists were more for people’s rights than the Anti-federalists. In conclusion, there are many differences between the federalists and Anti-federalists. The Federalists and the Anti-federalists had many differences such as: change of government, the constitution, and the people’s rights. The Anti-federalists wanted to keep the government the same, while the federalists wanted to change it.
Hamilton says that having Supreme Court justices for life is good for a variety of reasons. One of these reasons is that he considers the judicial branch to be the weakest of all three branches. This is because Congress controls the money and the president has the ability to enforce laws but all the Supreme Court can do is make sure that their actions do not violate the Constitution for the United States nor violate the rights of the people. Hamilton believes that as long as the judges are not corrupt then they are allowed to stay in their positions for as long as they want. Hamilton also believes that the judicial review is a power that the Supreme Court is allowed to have because it is a barrier against abuse of power in Congress as
Society is everything constructive and good that people join together to accomplish. Government, on the other hand, is an institution whose sole purpose is to protect us from our own mistakes. Government has its origins in the evil of man and is therefore a necessary evil at best. The government's sole purpose is to protect life, liberty and property, but the people will prefer to be responsible for the creation of the laws that rule them. The British system is too complex and harmful, and that the monarchy is granted far too much power.
Washington talks to the people of the United States and tells them that he is not needed as president anymore and that the nation will do just fine without him as the leader. He believed that he was not qualified enough to take on the role of president. Washington strongly believed that the unity of the states will determine how well the nation does without him. He warned the people to look out for any evidence of suspicious things that would ruin the Union and would cause states to secede. People must believe they’re American’s and not just Texan’s or Iowan’s, meaning they need to fight for the country and not just for their state.
