BACK TO THE FUTURE


200 PLUS YEARS AGO THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA GUSHED ABOUT THOMAS JEFFERSON WHILE BASHING HIS OPPONENT JOHN ADAMS. TODAY HISTORIANS ARE REWRITING THE HISTORY BOOKS WITH JEFFERSON’S REPUTATION ON THE DECLINE AND ADAM’S ON THE RISE! NO QUESTION THAT JEFFERSON WAS THE SUPERIOR POLITICIAN BUT ADAM’S WAS FAR AND AWAY THE SUPERIOR PERSON.
JEFFERSON WAS PRO FRENCH, PRO AGARAIN AND PRO STATES RIGHTS WHILE ADAMS WAS PRO ENGLISH, PRO BUSINESS AND PRO CENTRAL GOVERNMENT. THE FRENCH REVOLUTION WOULD LEAD TO THE REIGN OF TERROR, IN THE SOUTH FARMING WOULD LEAD TO THE CONTINUED USE OF SLAVERY AND STATE RIGHTS WOULD EVENTUALLY LEAD TO A CIVIL WAR!
BUT NEITHER WERE PERFECT, JEFFERSON’S MULTIPLE IMPREGNATION’S OF ONE OF HIS SLAVE AND ADAMS SUPPORT OF THE ALIEN AND SEDITION ACT PROVE THAT THEY WERE LESS THAN PERFECT FOUNDERS. BUT THEN WHO IS AND WHEN YOU CONSIDER THEIR ACCOMPLISHMENTS NEITHER WARRANTS BEING THROWN OUT WITH THEIR DIRTY BATH WATER. BUT I’LL TAKE ADAMS EVERY TIME!
AND THAT IS ALL I’M GOING TO SAY ABOUT THAT!
