It Worked For Him -- I Will Try It.
This above quote from him is probably what defines his success. I quess he went on the premises that the best kept secret is one you don't tell to anyone.
I do not appreciate what he did to the Native Americans and I believe I understand the feelings
they have toward Andrew Jackson for what he did to them but he was not the first, the Conquistadors did worse when they pilfered the Southeastern United States and the Western States not to say what they did to Native Americans in Mexico, Central America and South America
What amazes me about him until today is that he IS the only United States President to EVER BALANCE THE BUDGET. And, he took on the United States Bank, at that time, to resolve the problem. It looks as though we are going in the opposite direction NOW.
