Do I DARE disagree with Jefferson, Jackson, Hamilton, et al? Yes. No man is beyond fault.<quoted text>
Jacksonians believe that self-reliance is the cornerstone for any society and contributing back to society by taking care of ourselves and our families is first and foremost.
That certainly doesn't describe Obama.
Maybe I read your post wrong.
And Jefferson warned us about an overpowerful central government. Are you finding fault with the founding father whose vision helped to create this great experiment of government by the people and for the people?
Or did I read that wrong too?
Jacksonian believed that all citizens have a right to take part in choosing leaders and running government - but he also strongly believed in the slave system. Jefferson believed that property owners should be allowed to vote, the elite should run government and that presidential candidates should be chosen not by public convention, but by political caucus.
