"There is no pleasure in having nothing to do; the fun is having lots to do and not doing it." -Andrew Jackson
During the period of 1830 to 1850, Jacksons enthusiastic followers created the Jacksonian Democracy Party. It followed the belief of Thomas Jefferson’s Democratic Republican party, which claimed that republican governments will fail, if they do not provide enough power to the citizens and the minorities. Jacksons party provided equal rights among all white males, giving more power and voice to the individuals. Jacksonian Democracy is still used in our government today.
