Asked in Thomas Jefferson
Why did federalists disagree with the principles expressed by thomas jefferson?
Were the federalists papers authorized by Madison and Jefferson?
Since Madison wrote many of the Federalist Papers, I would venture to assume he "authorized" them. Thomas Jefferson was also very much in favor of the ratification of the Constitution, which was the primary purpose of the Federalist Papers, and so I would say he was in favor of publication, too. Although Jefferson did disagree with some of the individual papers, most notably #84 which argued against the Bill of Rights.

Asked in US Supreme Court
Can the Constitution be interpreted differently by Congress the President and the Supreme Court?
Absolutely. Even US Supreme Court justices disagree with each other's interpretation of the Constitution, which is why there are seldom unanimous votes. While the President and members of Congress may disagree with certain Supreme Court decisions, the justices are the final arbiters of the Constitution. The other branches of government must abide by the Court's opinions.
How do justices determine the meaning the Constitution?
Asked in Thomas Jefferson
In what ways did Hamilton and Jefferson disagree on the economy?
Hamilton believed in loose construction of the Constitution, which means that the government can take reasonable actions that the Constitution does not specifically forbid. Jefferson believed in the strict construction of the Constitution, which means that people who favor it think that the federal government should do only what the constitution specifically says it can do.
What are the differences between the first political parties and the political parties today?
America's first political parties were the Democratic-Republicans and the Democrats. (Federalists and the Anti-federalists were the first factions; not parties) They disagreed over the power of national and state governments, foreign policies, and interpretation of the Constitution. The political parties back then were split against topics that we now agree on, like how the Constitution should be interpreted and how much power each government should have. Nowadays, current political parties disagree on more personal topics like abortion. It has become so much more diverse and complex that it is hard for someone to say they agree with everything that their political party is for.
