H8, so TR was not a true Republican?

Andrew Jackson created the spoils system, he stuck his nose in banking, defied the SC, and was generally a disagreeable jerk, but he did not start the era of big government...that was a creation of Wilson and the progressives...which does include TR's concept that government and business should form a partnership. TR was a progressive in a Republican cloak.

interesting! what made you think of Andy?
Election Day 2012 will not be a presidential election. It will be a plebiscite.

Americans will not only be voting for a president (and a House and a third of the Senate). They will be participating in a plebiscite on the definition of America.

If Americans re-elect the Democrat, Barack Obama, they will have announced that America should be like Western European countries -- governed by left-wing values. Americans will have decided that America's value system -- "Liberty," "In God We Trust," "E Pluribus Unum" -- should be replaced.

The election in November is therefore a plebiscite on the American Revolution. The usual description...
