George Washington’s Secretary of State.

6 Democratic Republicans – Beliefs:
No National Bank – This would only benefit the rich. No tariffs – this helps with free trade and lower prices. Help the French – they helped us during the Revolutionary War!

Weak Central Government – A strong central government will endanger people’s freedom! Strict Interpretation of the Constitution – limit the power of the Federal Gov. People should participate in government rather than rule by the rich and the few.
