Weegy: C- Thomas Jefferson being the genius he was realized that war was a lost cause in that America would lose miserably. Also he thought to the long run. Thomas Jefferson was at heart in favor of agriculture, but in mind he favored industry. [ Passing the Embargo Act of 1807 allowed America to slowly but surely become self-sufficient. Before this America was dependent on European goods. ]
