A Secret Hamiltonian in the White House?

We have a Hamiltonian in the White House.

This breaking news comes courtesy of the New York Times and historian Jacob Soll.

What a revelation!

It’s almost as if Hamiltonian America did not win at Appomattox in 1865.

We’ve had a Hamiltonian in the White House almost unabated since.

Soll’s amazing discovery is politically motivated. You see, if Joe Biden is a Hamiltonian, then we should all vote to reelect him. The implied alternative is that we would get something else, perhaps someone who isn’t a Hamiltonian in Donald Trump.

That would be news to Donald Trump. Or perhaps anyone who covered the Trump administration.

This is why Alexander Hamilton continues to screw up America.

Everyone who loves centralized power is a Hamiltonian, including Trump, Biden, and frankly just about everyone in the federal city.

This isn’t news. I wrote a book on it in 2016.

If you are unhappy with the current activist Supreme Court, blame Hamilton.

If you don’t like the direction of an overly centralized government in Washington D.C., blame Hamilton.

If you mourn the loss of real federalism in America, blame Hamilton.

If you think implied powers are a detriment to constitutional government, blame Hamilton.

I could go on, but the fact that the New York Times would present this piece as something of a unique discovery shows just how stupid American politics have become.

We don’t have a real Jeffersonian opposition in America and haven’t in a long time, perhaps nearly 200 years.

To think that Biden is novel by pursuing Hamiltonianism is a joke.

But as usual, this made for great Podcast fodder.

I discuss Hamilton, Soll, Biden, and Trump on Episode 945 of The Brion McClanahan Show.
