Two key components of his farewell address were:
1. Ending political political parties (the best interest of the parties may not be the best interest of the country). This was brought on by the Hamilton/Jefferson differences.
2. Neutrality. At this time, England and France were two world powers and both had ties to America. Jefferson favored the French, Hamilton the English. Washington urged that we side with neither because siding with one would draw us into a war with the other.
