Hillary is planning a fundraiser at a Broadway show of Hamilton tomorrow night. Tickets range from $2,700 to $100,000. The ridiculous part of this is that Alexander Hamilton would hate Hillary, the Clintons and the whole Democrat Party.
Alexander Hamilton was the father of commerce in America. He demanded that the national government pay all the state debts from the War of Independence in order to create a national economy and a national bond market. He created the Treasury department, the first national bank (that the Democrats destroyed), created the tax collection agency and everything else to make commerce possible in America.
Hillary and the Democrat Party have openly and consistently attacked private wealth in the U.S., passed odious laws against banking and Wall Street, fought against modern commerce with draconian labor rulings and anti-commerce regulations in every government department. Worst of all the Democrats spent 6 years working on a trade agreement that will not yield a single dollar of greater income for the U.S. if it is ever passed.
If you haven’t read the great biography of Hamilton by Ron Chernow, do so now. It was apparently the source for Lin Manuel Miranda’s musical.
I can only guess the sequence of events. Miranda is a lifelong Democrat from his parents deep connection to the party. Some dingbat on Hillary’s campaign saw the connection with Miranda, the Democrat Party and the scarcity of tickets to the musical as a chance for a fundraiser. Being one of the hard core Democrats, none of whom knows any history, the dingbat proposed the fundraiser and no Democrats recognized that Hamilton is the real father of the Republican Party. Nor did any of the Democrat empty heads understand that the Democrat Treasury Secretary had just spent a year trying to remove the picture of Hamilton from the $10 bill.
Nothing seems to shame the Democrat Party when it comes to modern commerce. The Republican Party might get one hand clapping for their understanding of commerce.
