Jeffersonians vs. Jacksonians

Justin Raimondo contrasts the "small archaic minority, who cling to the view of the Founders that we should pursue a policy of entangling alliances with none and trade with all," with those who "have determined the course of contemporary American policy... [and] mix an explosive belligerence with... a 'populist and popular culture of honor, independence, courage, and military pride'" — ‘Paulites’ vs. ‘Palinites’.

Also mentioned are the Hamiltonians and Wilsonians, the former advocating "little more than crass mercantilism with a thin cosmetic veneer of Anglophilia" and the latter being "self-styled 'idealists' who believe the mission of the US is to spread democracy and enforce the concept of 'self-determination.'"

I would trust Pat Buchanan's analysis of Hamilton's economic policies more than Justin Raimondo's.
