"the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs."

Yep, he tried for many years to close the central bank. I think it was Calhoun who shot at him twice over it at point blank range when he was president. The powder failed to ignite.

Matter of fact I think that was the time that the Donkey/Mule came into play as the Republicans met to portray him as a dumb *** and akin to the *** in cartoons about him in the papers.. That was the Republicans screw up, as the poor and working class respected the Donkey/Mule as a hard working, honest and loyal animal. It then became the symbol of the Democrats.

Got my Presidents mix up. that was Andrew Jackson not Jefferson in my above answer.

The idea of public service and trust are gone in this government. Our leaders forget that their job is to serve the public and not be served by the public. If only we had a Thomas Jefferson today.

I think a Patrick Henry would come in handy, too!

Your history is a bit suspect.

Republicans? Neat trick since the Republican party was not formed until the 1850's as part of a movement against slavery. :rof:

Note by correction above. I had my presidents mixed up. I have had Jefferson on my mind the last few days. As I am reading his Presidental Papers. I have a libary of Presidential Paper up through Ford. The early ones are the ones to really read and see how this county came about and the thoughts of the men who formed it and ran it in the ealy days.

Sadly, it will take another Revolution to get this country back on track. Unfortunately for us, we will have to live through another fall of the Roman Empire before people wake up.:(

Jackson's presidency ended nearly 20 years before the Republican party was formed.

It is well to heed Thomas Jefferson's words of wisdom. Patrick Henry was also mentioned in one of the posts. We would all do well to remember our heritage, and sacrifices made by the revolutionaries. (i.e. Patrick Henry). If you don't stand up for your rights (all of them) protect and defend them then you and I will not have them.

One man with courage is a majority
