Thomas Jefferson, a spokesman for democracy, was an American Founding Father, the principal author of the Declaration of Independence (1776), and the third President of the United States. His contributions to the shaping of the nation are profound, and his legacy continues to influence American politics and society to this day.

The words and phrases said by U.S. presidents are often as unique as the American experience. Learn some of the more common ones in this exploration of Thomas Jefferson's presidency and the impact he had on the young nation. Jefferson's presidency was marked by significant achievements and challenges, as he navigated the complex political landscape of the early 19th century.

During his time in office, Jefferson focused on expanding the nation's territory through the Louisiana Purchase, doubling the size of the United States. This monumental decision not only secured valuable land for future generations but also set the stage for westward expansion and economic growth.

Two political outsiders have taken steps to launch independent or third-party presidential bids over the past week. And the prospect of a viable third-party candidate in the 2024 election raises questions about the role of third parties in American politics and the potential impact they could have on the outcome of the election.

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — It's time for the third Republican presidential debate, and there's going to be an even smaller lineup onstage than before. The candidates are gearing up to discuss critical issues facing the nation, including gun laws, national security, and international relations.

NEW YORK, Nov 17 (Reuters) - Facing a likely choice between Republican Donald Trump or Democrat Joe Biden in the 2024 presidential race, voters are looking for alternatives. Independent or third-party candidates could provide a fresh perspective and shake up the traditional two-party system.

Focus on China. Amid the intensifying US competition with China, the candidates appeared to be in agreement over prioritizing the Washington-Beijing relationship and addressing key issues such as trade, technology, and human rights. National security and foreign policy played a significant role in Jefferson's presidency as well, as he navigated the challenges of international relations during his time in office.

The viable third-party presidential option is the fever dream of American politics. As the 2024 election approaches, the possibility of an independent candidate making a significant impact on the race is being closely watched by political analysts and voters alike.

The presidential election cycle theory attempts to forecast trends in U.S. stock markets following the election of a new president. Jefferson's presidency was marked by economic challenges, including the Embargo Act of 1807, which aimed to protect American interests but ultimately hurt the economy.

Independent or third-party bids are playing an outsized role in the 2024 presidential race, which is beset by two historically unpopular candidates. Jefferson's own election in 1800 was marked by a contentious campaign against John Adams, highlighting the importance of a strong democracy and the power of the people to choose their leaders.
