Of all the silly fabrications of American history that have come from the High Priest of the Lincoln Cult, Harry Jaffa, and have been repeated by his cult followers at the Claremont Institute and elsewhere, perhaps the most absurd is the notion that Abraham Lincoln was a Jeffersonian. For an amusing example of this false history see “Lincoln the Jeffersonian” in the April 2002 issue of Liberty magazine by one Timothy Sandefur, a former “Lincoln Fellow” at the Claremont Institute and a card-carrying Cult member.
Lincoln was in fact the anti-Jefferson. Jefferson’s famous “Principles of ’98,” including his Kentucky Resolve of 1798, establish him as the foremost American architect of the states’ rights philosophy.
Lincoln commanded an army that killed 300,000 fellow citizens to assure the destruction of that philosophy.Jefferson opposed central banking and the use of tax dollars to subsidize corporations, especially the hated Bank of the United States; Lincoln championed the Bank throughout his political career, resurrected it with his National Currency Acts, and spent thirty years of his life battling for corporate welfare subsidies to his political supporters in the railroad and road-building industries.Jefferson was the author of America’s first declaration of secession — the Declaration of Independence — a declaration of secession from the British empire. Lincoln denied that such a right even existed and waged war to destroy the most important principle of the Declaration of Independence.
