I believe you are correct. I hear lots of people hating Hamilton, but firmly believe that the emotion is a result of limited studies.
We have to give credit where credit is due. Look at how the different views of the founders resulted in a wonderful government. Hamilton was dead-on right in some ideas, not in others. Hatred should find no quarter when all is considered.
Right now I’m reading about the strange actions of Madison, who seems to be above reproach.
Fascinating stuff; too bad we can’t manage what they gave us.
Following are the words of David Robertson, the unofficial copyist of the Virginia Ratification Debates.
"Every speech breathes the spirit of a freeman, and should the following record descend to an enslaved posterity, every page will become a monument of the political purity of their fathers, and of their own disgraceful degeneracy. Should the footsteps of a tyrant hereafter contaminate the soil of our country, the Debates of the Virginia Convention will probably be among the earliest victims of a suspicious proscription."
