Washington chose both Hamilton and Jefferson to be his advisors because they were complete opposites. Since they were different Washington attracted both sides of the population, causing most of the people to vote for him. Also, this allowed Washington to control a well balanced government having both sides of Hamilton and Jefferson with in his government.

Federalist government is similar to a democratic party because they both have the same beliefs on war. The federalists believe that we should stay neutral when other countries go to war. The democratic party also believed that the country should not get involved  with foreign conflicts.

United States History
01:05
The introduction to Political Parties in the United States created a lot of division in history.
01:05
For example when the democratic-republican party split into two separate parties. When Jackson won the popular vote and Adams won the presidency, this sparked a problem causing them to split. Another example is the current abortion problems in America. What I mean is the government wants to pass that abortion is illegal but most people are against what the The government is trying to pass. This is causing major problems in society. The last example that is causing division in America is gun laws.  Again some people are for legal guns and some people are against people owning guns.  All of these examples are causing or already caused  division in the United States.
