Trump - Jackson Debate

Now I hate Reaganomics (Voodoo Economics) that Republicans have inculcated into our illiterate population, and I hate that Trump won his Electoral College victory based on racism, sexism, and Republican "ideals" for letting the rich get richer, etc.

At first blush, the media are jumping on Trump's most recent Jackson comments, but I beg to differ. Sure, Jackson was president well before the Civil War and died before the Civil War; however, as I argued in a paper about Herman Melville's Moby Dick -- which was also written before the Civil War -- the whole topic of states' rights as impacted by the Northern states' hatred of slavery was discussed perhaps as early as 1824 as was secession in 1832 in a state legislature in the South.

Moby Dick had a ship named after an extinct tribe of Indians -- the Pequoid -- I think it was. My interpretation of that book included Melville's precognition of the coming Civil War. The Pequoid sank, and as such, I felt it represented "The Ship of State."

Jackson could have commented on the coming conflagration between the states before it occurred, therefore, just as Melville -- I believe -- had done.

LaterNote: Read Elizabeth Warren's new book, This Fight Is Our Fight. I got it for $14 off Amazon and it was delivered wirelessly to my Kindle Reader, btw. I am 40% of the way through it. I just came up to her section trashing NAFTA, but have not yet finished that section. Perhaps the big business that is agriculture in these United States should not overrule the individual factory workers' jobs that we have lost to NAFTA. I'm just sayin' -- not knowing, by any stretch of the imagination.
