Generate a list of at least 10 of President Jefferson’s decisions and actions. Decide which party’s ideals are most aligned with the decision or action and provide an explanation of why the decision or action aligns with that party. Decisions and Actions Democratic-Republican Party’s Beliefs and Ideals Federalist Party’s Beliefs and Ideals President Jefferson repealed many of the taxes Hamilton had imposed. They believed that there was too much money being spent on government employees and that they could use tariffs from trading partners for funding the government rather than internal taxes. Many Federalist were worried that their shipping industry would be jeopardized by the weakened naval fleet. This is understandable because with the less protection for trader ships and the loss of employees as well as jobs would cause a worry about if trading vessels would be raided by pirates or other countries. President Jefferson cut back the military only maintaining a small army on the western frontier and a tiny navy for protecting the American coast. They believed this would cost the Americans less money as well make an even smaller federal government. I feel that this was a bad decision because with the British and French at war that American needed to show they had a strong naval fleet ready to protect as well as have a strong ground military presence also to show that if there war was to bleed over to the Americans that we were ready to defend what was The federalist really could not do anything because they had lost both houses of Congress which prevented them from acting.
