Georgia Gwinnett College Hamilton Financial Plan Discussion

For this discussion, you will adopt the perspective of two competing parties–the Federalists and the Democratic-Republicans–on the question of Alexander Hamilton’s Financial Plan. In your initial posting, you will adopt the perspective of either the Federalists or the Democratic-Republicans and explain why……. they either supported or opposed Hamilton’s proposal.

Initial Post:

Your initial posting will have two parts.

For Part 1, you must write at least one paragraph describing and explaining the three components of Hamilton’s Financial Plan. What were the three elements Hamilton outlined? What was their purpose? Why did Hamilton think they were essential to the survival of the republic?

For Part 2, you will be assigned either the Federalist or Democratic-Republican perspective on Hamilton’s proposed changes. As we have seen in our readings, not everyone agreed with Hamilton on the necessity of the economic changes proposed in his Financial Plan.

— Why did the Democratic-Republicans oppose Hamilton’s Financial Plan?

Each of these paragraphs should be at least 6-7 sentences in length.

Response to classmate:

Your response should approach the argument from the opposite perspective. This will mean choosing a post from someone who originally wrote from the same perspective as you. In your response to that person, you will argue against their perspective.

Classmate post:

Hamilton wanted the national government to assume state debts. By doing this, the states would be tied to the federal government and also be subservient to it. His financial plan consisted of three things. The first was the central government’s assumption of the state’s war debts to increase national unity and the legitimacy of the government. The second was the creation of Bank of the United States to ensure a more stable, common currency for the new nation. The third was to create a protectionist policy that included the central government subsidizing local manufacturers and enacting heavy tariffs on imports in order to stimulate American industry.

As a federalist, it only makes sense that his financial plan would be in our favor. We wanted to ensure the solvency of the United States and national unity. Hamilton supported a national bank which would ensure a stable economic system, which would encourage investment by wealthy Americans and those abroad. This investment could be used to develop the industrial base of the United States. He also supported strong tariffs to support American manufacturing as well. This is why we supported his financial plan.

Chapter 22, Fighting for the Four Freedoms: World War II, 1941-1945, history homework help

Watch “WWII: America a History of Us” posted in this folder, watch
Podcasts 3 & 6 posted in this folder, and read Ch. 22 of “Give Me
Liberty” before considering the question. Be sure to cite specific
evidence from the textbook and videos and also consider comments of your
peers in your reply.

Many have called WWII “the last good war” and debated whether the
U.S.’s entry into the conflict met the requirements of Just War Theory
(for more information on just war theory, please see: For a war to be considered just it has to meet the following criteria:

1. Just cause: a nation must enter war in self-defense or for other reasons that uphold justice.

2. Right intention: the outcome of the war must ensure that justice
is attained and there can be no ulterior motives like racial or ethnic
hatred and/or land grabbing.

3. Proper authority & public declaration: the war must be decided
upon and declared by the proper authorities in the state in accordance
with the nation’s laws. The declaration also must be made public against
the opposing nation.

4.Last Resort: a nation must first exhaust all diplomatic and peaceful means by which the conflict can possibly be resolved.

5. Probability of Success: war should only be initiated if it has a
good likelihood of success since it causes harm and destruction.

6. Proportionality: the universal good that a state can potentially
gain from war must outweigh the universal evil incurred by all of war’s
participants, especially loss of human life.

In your original post, answer the following questions: Judging from
this theory, do you think that the U.S.’s decision to enter the war AND
its involvement in WWII both abroad and at home conform with Just War
Theory? Why or why not? Were there any actions that fell short of these

For your reply, read your classmates’ original posts and make sure
that they have thoroughly considered both the US’s entry into and
involvement in WWII. How did the US interact with European powers who
were at war? What about US interactions with Japan? How did US military
campaigns conform with Just War Theory? What about domestic policy

Signnature Essay for US history to 1865

In this essay, I want you to consider the ethics and civics of those seeking change (later known to us as the Patriots). Who were these Patriots?
