Do now With the person sitting next to you take out a scrap piece of paper. You both will have 60 seconds to write down as many forms of campaigning methods that modern politicians utilize in today’s campaigns to get people to vote for them.
Election of 1800 Federalists vs. Democratic Republicans - federalists: John Adams/ Charles Pinckney Democratic Republicans: Thomas Jefferson/Aaron Burr - they fought a very bitter campaign against each other - lots of mudslinging and name calling (as demonstrated by the previous slide) Didn’t travel around the country like modern politicians. Had mailing campaigns.
Election Outcome Democratic Republicans won House of Representatives had to vote to decide who would be president Jefferson or Burr. 16 states voted and whoever had more votes became president and the other became vp. 35 times they voted and tied each time Finally Hamilton persuaded a rep to change his vote to Jefferson. (J-trustworthy, B- NY Banker wanted power) 12th amendment- vote on separate ballots
Jefferson’s Inauguration How did he present himself? Main point - reduce size and power of government Laissez-faire/ hands off- have the people do as they please and have the government stay out of the way
Jefferson’s Presidency Cut costs- taxes, military spending etc. Repealed all interior taxes including the whiskey tax. Customs duties- government funding will come from sale of western lands and tariffs (taxes on imports and exports)
Judiciary Act of 1801 Created 16 district courts around U.S. Adams had many appointments in an effort to fill positions - wanted federalists to fill them before Jefferson could appoint DR’s. Got most filled before leaving office Jefferson told his Sec. of State James Madison not send the rest
Marbury VS. Madison 1803- William Marbury(judge) sued James Madison for not delivering his letter. Case went to the Supreme Court - Chief Justice John Marshall voted against Marbury
Judicial Review Gave the judicial branch the power to declare laws unconstitutional. 1)The Constitution is the supreme Law 2)The constitution must be followed when there is a conflict or disagreement between it and any other law 3)Judicial branch must uphold the Constitution and nullify any unconstitutional laws.
