  • President JeffersonWho was Jefferson? 3rd PresidentDemocratic-RepublicanconservativeFor the states and the people.

  • Jeffersons GoalsWhat were his goals as president? Democratize AmericaMake government smaller and less powerfulReconcile (get over) party differences.

  • Jeffersons PlanHow did he plan to achieve his goals?Democratize acted less formal and dressed/acted like a regular citizen.Louisiana Purchase - Expand the country so that more people can own land and be involved in government.2. Keep the government out of the economy (laissez faire and free market) = no tariff. Cut budget, decrease size of the government departments and army/navy, and repeal whiskey tax (vintage conservative economic policies).3. Reconcile differences: Keep some Federalist policies = keep the national bank, pay off debts, and allow many federalists to keep their jobs. Allow them to stay involved without giving in.

  • What hurt Jefferson Plans?Marbury v Madison precedent (example) for Judicial Review. Courts would have the power to overrule any law or action (including Congress, the president, and even the states!)
