April 13 2005 - Happy Birthday Thomas Jefferson

Discussion Community: April 13 2005 - Happy Birthday Thomas Jefferson



Remarks by the President During Event in Honor of Thomas Jefferson's Birthday
April 12, 2001


quote:
"Perhaps the best verdict came from one of Jefferson's keenest admirers and sharpest critics, the first Republican President, Abraham Lincoln." (continued below)
The above quote is a scarce statement of fact that is in opposition to the factually contorted semantic gymnastics on the whitehouse's website (on the internetS): "Jefferson gradually assumed leadership of the Republicans, who sympathized with the revolutionary cause in France."

A statement like that could lead someone to be confused to the point to actually think Jefferson was a Republican.

He died on July 4, 1826.

10229 days after the death of Thomas Jefferson
The Republican Party is BORN

The facts are further clarified here:

Jackson, Michigan is the birthplace of the republican party.
The City of Jackson has a Michigan State Historical Maker (as shown in picture)

"UNDER THE OAKS
On July 6, 1854, a state convention of anti-slavery men was held in Jackson to found a new political party. "Uncle Tom's Cabin" had been published two years earlier, causing increased resentment against slavery, and the Kansas-Nebraska Act of May, 1854, threatened to make slave states out of previously free territories. Since the convention day was hot and the huge crowd could not be accommodated in the hall, the meeting adjourned to an oak grove on "Morgan's Forty" on the outskirts of town. Here a state-wide slate of candidates was selected and the Republican Party was born. Winning an overwhelming victory in the elections of 1854, the Republican party went on to dominate national parties throughout the nineteenth century."

Bu$h Quoting Lincoln in statement

quote:
"All honor to Jefferson, to the man who in the concrete pressure of a struggle for national independence by a single people had the coolness, forecast and capacity to introduce into a merely revolutionary document an abstract truth, applicable to all men and at all times. And so, to embalm it there, that today and in all coming days it shall be a rebuke and a stumbling block to the very harbingers of a reappearing tyranny and oppression." Happy birthday, Mr. Jefferson.
