The story of the Democrats (available free for the asking see details) continues with a description of the White House drunken orgy Andrew Jackson presided over in celebration of his victory.
“Cut glass and china to the amount of several thousand dollars had been broken in the struggle to get the refreshments, punch and other articles had been carried out in tubs and buckets, but had it been in hogsheads it would have been insufficient, ice-creams, and cake and lemonade, for 20,000 people, for it is said that number were there, tho’ I think the number exaggerated.
“Ladies fainted, men were seen with bloody noses and such a scene of confusion took place as is impossible to describe, – those who got in could not get out by the door again, but had to scramble out of windows. At one time, the President who had retreated and retreated until he was pressed against the wall, could only be secured by a number of gentleman forming around him and making a kind of barrier of their own bodies, and the pressure was so great that Col. Bomford who was one said that at one time he was afraid they should have been pushed down, or on the President. It was then the windows were thrown open, and the torrent found an outlet, which otherwise might have proved fatal.”
Jackson: the original ugly American
Those who have wondered why our South American neighbors have hated us forever should consider the part Andrew Jackson had in Britain’s forcible theft of the Malvinas Islands from Argentina.
Violating or ignoring laws they don’t like is not a recent stunt for Democrats. Jackson violated the Monroe Doctrine – the policy of the United States opposing European interference in the Western Hemisphere- including South America – to favor British interests over American foreign policy.
In 1833 the British decided to seize the Malvinas, a chain of islands off the coast of Argentina which had always been claimed and recognized as Argentine territory. In the kind of kowtowing to a foreign sovereign Barack Obama would be proud of, Andrew Jackson did nothing as the British moved to seize the island chain.
Jackson compounded his malfeasance by threatening to help England perpetrate the theft if the defenseless Argentines did not knuckle under and go along with the robbery.
The islands, now called the Falklands by the United Kingdom, are still held as “British territory” to this day and serve as a reminder to honest students of history of the cowardice of Andrew Jackson.  
The start of the “Democrats are for the little guy” lie
A contemporary proponent of anti-Jeffersonian nationalism, along with Burr, Jackson was a strong opponent of the Bank of the United States which was a bulwark against the world financial monopoly of London’s banking interests.
Under the stewardship of Philadelphian Nicholas Biddle the Bank of the United States (BUS) had thrived as a way to provide much needed lines of credit for a growing America.
The popular myth about Jackson’s handling of the Bank of the United States holds that, our pal “Old Hickory” attacked the bank because he didn’t trust banks on the theory that banks hurt the so called “working people.”
Under Biddle’s leadership of the BUS, average Americans, farmers, small businessmen and other entrepreneurs were able to get loans to help our young country keep growing. Without the BUS they would be forced to borrow money from English banks at usurious rates.
Andrew Jackson killed the Bank of the United States and shortly after America was plunged into “The Panic” (or depression) of 1837.
The closing of the Bank, to “help the little guy” brought about terrible inflation which was followed by a sharp deflation because banks decided to accept only gold and silver as currency. As the first Democrat to promote class warfare, Jackson brought America’s “little guys” economic depressions and unemployment rates that were previously unheard of at that time. 
Jackson and minorities
Jackson purchased a female slave in 1788 and was in the slave trading business his whole life. By the 1820s Jackson “owned” 160 slaves and never freed them, not even in his will.  Keep this fact in mind when Democrats attack the founding fathers, such as Jefferson – who did free his slaves – while in the same breath lauding the legacy of “Ol’ Hickory.”
The Trail of Tears
Perhaps the worst instance of Jackson’s willingness to emulate the bellicose traditions of European empires was the genocide of the Cherokee Nation known as the Trail of Tears……..
