Thomas Jefferson and James Madison wrote the Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions in response to the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798, which included four bills empowering the federal government to fine and imprison persons advocating actions deemed dangerous to the Republic or refusing to follow federal law.
