- Hello Jimmy319, Thank you for an interesting
post. You wrote in part: �. . . What is my point?
Obviously that if you are truly wanting a restoration of
the intent and purposes of the constitution, you
should be looking for a new candidate which exemplifies
the beliefs men like Jefferson or Jackson. . . .
�<br><br>I believe you conclusion begs some manner of form
and definition. You seem to believe that if one wears
Jefferson's or Jackson's political hat one also wears that of
the Constitution. That Jefferson and Jackson
political intents are equal to those of the Constitution.
This may -- or -- may not be true, but I believe the
Founding Generation's Constitution is based more on truths
about themselves and the Common Law than the politics
as practiced by select individuals and groups.
<br><br>There are as many parts to the Constitution of 1791 as
there were Common Laws. It would be helpful if you
would state the foundations and reasons of your faith
in Jefferson and Jackson by dealing in specifics
rather than generalities. Exactly what part - or parts
-- of the Constitution exemplifies the
[Constitutional] beliefs of Jefferson and Jackson? After making
those distinctions, let us then discuss the
Constitution's intent and compare their beliefs and acts with
that Intent. <br><br>Without definition your comments
are as meaningful as the sizzle of a steak roasting
on an open grill. Smells good -- sounds good -- and
it holds much promise -- but if we cannot get into
the meat of the issue[s], we will starve to death.
