Hamilton might have been Jefferson’s “arch enemy”, but if it wasn’t for Hamilton, Jefferson wouldn’t have defeated Aaron Burr in the 1800 election.

I’m sure you are better for it.

The Theme is Freedom:
Religion, Politics, and the American Tradition
by M. Stanton Evans
is a most interesting discussion of the intellectual basis of the founding of the US.

I felt I learned things that I had been indoctrinated (way back in the fifties) to not know . . .
