Most of you probably have not a clue who he was other than the catchy phrase you were taught in history class -- 'Tippacanoe & Tyler too'
This was a campaign slogan for the 1841 election where 'Tippacanoe' was the famous (in his day) military hero William Henry Harrison; the same one who died of pneumonia about a month into office because he have an incredibly long Inaugural Address in the cold rain without a hat.
But historians like most elitists tend to only see the forests for the trees and miss the bigger picture.
We at A&G greatly admire Tyler because he possessed qualities completely lacking in modern politicians, namely Inner Strength and Personal Conviction.
Now Deal did not veto the measure because he personally found offense with the bill.. That would have been understandable for many governors veto legislation they personally disagree with.
But in this case the cowardly puss-puss vetoed the bill because of continued and coordinated pressure by profit-first corporations and that den of Evil called Hollywood to veto or they were going to financially try to hurt the state every way they could i.e. no movie shoots, no conventions or conferences, no future Super Bowl, moving the MLB all-star game, etc..
Why is it when the mafia arm-twists people to comply to its will, its considered wrong and illegal but when liberal-progressive minded corporations do it to appease and not alienate any demographic who possess a credit card, its a normal part of the political process.
He would have been too dignified to say 'Fuck You' to these scumbags but not only would Tyler have signed the legislation into law but said to Apple, NFL and the others the following:
'Any company that tried to bully/harass myself and the State, we're going to pass a law either preventing your products or services from being sold here or add an high excise tax so people go to your competitor to buy what they need'
And ironic isn't it how Apple run by a openly gay man is so active in gay rights and the whole gay marriage push while threatening states like Georgia who disagree and yet when it comes to nations like Uganda and Nigeria which kill gay people just for being gay, CEO Tim Cook stays silent while Apple products are freely sold without interference in their politics..
Selective defender of gay rights or another ass-spreading money whore?
The reason we can say this so assuredly is simply by looking at his record as President..
Even though he was politically a Whig (precursor to Republican), he also had Democrat policy leanings.. No one seemed to care when he was chosen the VP candidate because the fact Tyler was southern was good enough for ticket balance.
No one then actually expected a VP to serve more than a couple weeks if a President passed; the VP was meant to be a temporary fill-in and nothing more.
So as written prior, Tyler stood up to the pressure of Congress and defied them that he was no 'accidental President' and Won..
President Andrew Jackson in the 1820s was able to stand up to the greedy soulless bankers and vetoed their measure even though they purposely caused a financial panic to scare the people into pressuring Jackson to cower... He didn't
The bankers and financial Wall Street scum of the day were prepared to cause the economy to suffer to get their 2nd National Bank bill passed..
Tyler stood firm.
Tyler vetoed the 2nd National Bank and the nation would be saved another 70 years before the corrupt financial world fully entrenched its tentacles around the nation, affecting everyone's life ultimately for the worse
Toward the end of Tyler's one term (he didn't run for re-election), the hot issue of that day was whether to annex Texas and thus end up fighting Mexico over it
So days before the end of his Presidency, he annexed Texas so future President James Polk couldn't weasel out of a decision. That was very unpopular but as before stated, Tyler had convictions and he wasn't going to be intimidated.
The end result.. by early 1848 the US wins the Mexican War and not only acquires Texas from that nation of future illegals, but also acquired California, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Nevada, etc,,,
Not a bad haul..
Now compare this man to that spineless Prick in Georgia (and so many like him in office, especially the current little brown monkey in the White House).
We are not anti-gay by any means but A&G has always been anti gay marriage because we have always seen it clearly for what it was and not what we were told
The ultimate goal was a big middle-finger to organized religion especially the Catholic Church since it is religious institutions who historically have treated gays and lesbians the most horribly over history, especially teens finding out who they are and at times the rejection by God some faiths push lead them to suicide
So there was a vengeance aspect that was kept under wraps as the outward focus was on equality.
Then you would have had real equality without crossing over into religion which is what this nation was always supposed to be about i.e. a separation between church and state.
Everyone knows the rest.. What could not be won in a ballot box was usurped through a Supreme Court of 9 people deciding for 320 million, and now people are forced to obey their conscience and suffer legal repercussions or participate in something some may find abhorrent.
Governor Nathan Deal peed in his undies and capitulated to the God of money and progressivism over the God to which he was raised to love and serve
John Tyler sure as hell would not have..
Can you honestly name anyone else in politics today who represents the political strength and convictions of Tyler?
