Alexander Bunt Jr. while visiting family friends in Providence endorses his friend Federalist RI Governor William Davies.
Davies releases his platform
Slavery: Protect slavery where it exist currently and below the Mason-Dixon line but ban it above as per the Missouri Compromise. Slave revolts threaten national stability and should be dealt with as such.
War of 1811 and Military: I lost my only son in that war and it changed me, I can not support sending boys to die in a politicians war.
Economic Policy: Protective tariff to encourage economic expansion. Find ways to quicken economic recovery from war. Slightly increase taxes to pay off debt quicker, look for ways so this won't hurt workers.
French Relations: They now surround us and were the only reason were still independent and as such we need to be on good relation with them, but we should try to enhance ourselves so we wont need them again.
British Relations: They have a powerful presence in world affairs and we should tread lightly with them, we should seek to bring in more trade with them.
Immigration: Encourage skilled immigrants to come to america to offset war losses.
Army: A volunteer army used only for defense.
Expansion: We need to expand everywhere we can to increase our national power, but only peacefully.
