Yeah, those protectionist, nationalistic, vaguely enterprise-friendly Republicans are incomprehensible.

Just what the hell is Abraham Lincoln's school of economic thought?

American School. High protective tariffs and subsidies coupled with internal improvements. Basically the same economic philosophy as Clay and, earlier, Hamilton.

Oh yeah, 100% in agreement. That's the correct answer to my sarcastic, rhetorical question. Which I actually thank you for posting, since I'm not sure people actually would all know about this.

I'd also like to note Trump loves "infrastructure" too. Makes it amusing when people call him a Jacksonian, because Andrew Jackson would HATE him.

After reading your post the second time over I now see the sarcasm. I'm pretty bad when it comes to detecting it over text, so my bad

The comparison between Jackson and Trump was always superficial and mostly based on the fact that they both ran "populist" campaigns championing the "common man" over "the elites". Any resemblance ends there
