and this comment at the above post:
"I follow your writings on this committee closely, but have never commented before. I'm moved to write today because I think you demonstrate with this post a misjudgment of John Quincy Adams, and Alexander Hamilton.
That Jackson was a vicious traitor intentionally planted to accomplish the crushing of Hamilton's National Bank is proven by his association with Aaron Burr, who first proposed a Jackson candidacy. Burr was certainly deployed by London forces to kill Hamilton and, in killing this genius, destroy the potential for an American political-economic system capable of eclipsing the power of the British Empire.
Throughout his long career, Quincy Adams was committed to a US policy of mutual benefit with other nations, emphatically including Russia. He intended a "community of principle" based on a common conception of the fundamental truth of the US republic: the inalienable rights of man. This was his devotion, as made clear by his principled and prolonged stand against slavery, both as President and later in the House.
The Burr/Jackson faction, which acted to destroy Hamilton and those who would continue his efforts at creating an industrial economic system outside of the reach of the British, followed the same logic as the "Borgist" faction of today: use demogoguery to maintain a fundamentally dysfunctional "system" of all against all, perpetual war, and bestial conditions for humanity. Burr was explicitly AGAINST the idea of a union, and repeatedly conspired to kill the young nation by breaking it up.
I consider this paper by Michael Kirsch very helpful in making the case: https://larouchepac.com/120712/myth-andrew-jackson-destroyed
Thank you for considering. I believe it's reasonably accurate to compare Trump to Jackson, but this background is necessary.
