Tory party supporters were aristocrats who felt Lord Liverpool the Prime Minister had a duty to protect them, their interests and to save them from the radical threat. In 1815 Lord Liverpool introduced a law called ‘The Corn Law’ however it is hard to justify in the first place why Lord Liverpool introduced this law as he was a strong believer in laissez-faire – minimum government intervention in economic matters. Nevertheless he still introduced this law.

To the government the whole reason of the law was to guarantee land owners profits of which they had became accustomed to during the war.
He wanted them to be able to fix their problems themselves and let the government do more important jobs and have to worry about them less. He wanted them to become strong, independent people, but when America’s situation was as bad as it was nothing the people did could get them out of that situation. The government needed to step in and help them get out of the hole because they were too far in to pull themselves out. This concept had good intentions, but failed miserably.

Sadly, one of the only reasons that Taft even made his way to up the political ladder was because he had political connections through his father. When a reporter informed him he was no Teddy Roosevelt, Taft replied that his goal was to "try to accomplish just as much without any noise"- Now what sort of president would settle for doing whatever it takes with no “noise”? He wanted no attention and no recognition to his terms in presidency.
