Who are the “Fathers” of the Republican and Democrat Parties?
I am very excited to bring to you a special edition of the Jesse Kurtz Show this Saturday, 13 Saturday, 2pm – 4pm on WIBG 1020 AM in the Atlantic City, NJ Metro Market and online at http://www.wibg.com/listen5.html .
Presidents Abraham Lincoln (Republican), Andrew Jackson (Democrat), & Today’s Republican and Democrat Parties
Geoffrey M. Elliott of The Abraham Lincoln Blog (http://abrahamlincolnblog.blogspot.com) will join me in the 2pm hour to discuss Abraham Lincoln as the Father of the Republican Party. What were President Lincoln’s ideas, actions, life, and spirit, and how does today’s Republican Party compare and contrast with President Lincoln?
Professor Harry L. Watson, Director of the UNC Center for the Study of the American South will join me in the 3pm hour to discuss Andrew Jackson and his influence on the Democrat Party. What were President Jackson’s ideas, actions, life, and spirit, and how does today’s Democrat Party reflect and reject the values of President Jackson?
Our experts are very knowledgeable and this show may explain why the majority of Americans are dissatisfied with both political parties. We may also see a roadmap to our roots in order to reclaim the heritage of both the Republican and Democrat Parties.
Please be sure to listen and tell a friend. This is going to be a very special program!
