Instead we chose to slaughter a million people and discard the original vision of the republic.

This is a persistant part of the neo-reb myth.

You won't find much difference between what Washington and Madison thought and what Jackson thought right down to what Lincoln thought. Their ideas were the same.

Washington urged an "immovable attachment" to the national union. So did Lincoln. The changes I bet you don't like came later.

Jefferson advocated the right of secession, from England in the Declaration of Independence and from the Union in subsequent writings.
