Transcript of "The birth of political parties"

  1. 1. THE BIRTH OF POLITICAL PARTIES Chapter 8 Section 2
  2. 2. FACTIONS • It’s no accident that factions rhymes with fractions. Factions tore groups apart from each other. • You would think that after winning a Revolution and creating a Constitution, the leaders of the new government could find a way to get along and work for the good of the country. • Everyone, especially Washington, looked at factions as trouble.
  3. 3. REPUBLICANS AND FEDERALISTS • Jefferson’s followers became the Republicans. • Hamilton’s followers became the Federalists.
  4. 4. Main Ideas Jefferson’s Republicans Hamilton’s Federalists Who should have power? Regular people Well educated, wealthy Which government should be strongest? States Federal What is the most important part of the economy? Farming Manufacturing, shipping, and trade How do we interpret the Constitution? Strictly Loosely Who should we support between England and France? France England Should we have a national bank? No Yes Should we have a protective tariff? No Yes
  5. 5. ELECTION OF 1796 • Washington set another precedent by not seeking a third term. No other President did attempt a 3rd until FDR. After that, the 22nd Amendment returned the Presidency to two terms, Washington’s precedent. • The Federalist candidate was the first VP, John Adams. • The Republican candidate was Thomas Jefferson. • Because this was before the 12th Amendment, Adams was elected President, and Jefferson was VP. Many disagreements would follow. Who would be President Obama’s Vice-President if we didn’t have the 12th Amendment?
