If there was such thing as a liberal left progressive loonie during the early years of the United States, he was Alexander Hamilton. Hamilton was a monarchist, and utopianist, and in today's language, a hard-left progressive. This is why the Democrat Party of today praises him so much. He's the one Founding Father they can relate to.
During the Constitutional Convention, after his anti-Federalist New York delegation abandoned him to leave him as the sole representative from his State, Hamilton cried out that the President should be a king. It was Hamilton, as Secretary of the Treasury, that first brought a central bank (kind of like the Federal Reserve) into existence, and he did it by arguing that the Constitution has implied powers, which can be interpreted into being by clever politicians, lawyers and judges. Of course, the idea of implied powers is preposterous, and unconstitutional. As James Madison argued in his Federalist Papers essay #14, [T]he general government is not to be charged with the whole power of making and administering laws: its jurisdiction is limited to certain enumerated objects, which concern all the members of the republic, but which are not to be attained by the separate provisions of any. But, George Washington reluctantly signed the act, anyway, not wishing to make waves, and the Bank of the United States was born.
Hamilton, like his buddy John Marshall who wound up Chief Justice of the Supreme Court for 36 years, saw an America where the government controls everything, and the States and citizens are minor actors in the whole thing. Today's hard left loonies love him for it so bad that they made a play to celebrate Alexander Hamilton. TIME Magazine even had a cover that practically bowed down to Hamilton, exclaiming that finally Hamilton's America was coming to fruition.
Democrats may be tolerant towards someone like Hamilton, but like Karl Marx, they are downright vicious to anyone who dares oppose them. The Hamilton Broadway play cast members have shown this to be true. Their casting call asked for 'Non-White Actors Only'. And, when Vice President Elect Mike Pence attended a showing of the play, the actors on stage went out of their way to call out Pence as their enemy. So while the Democrats and Hillary supporters claim they are the tolerant ones, and the Trump and Pence team are a bunch of racists, the reality is it is the Hamilton team of actors who are the racists who act upon what they hear, and not what they know. Trump has said he plans to take care of the problem.
Supporters of the Trump team have decided it is time to boycott the Hamilton play, and have started the hashtag #BoycottHamilton to defend the vice president-elect who was booed while attending the Broadway show “Hamilton” Friday night, and addressed directly by the cast after the show.
“We are the diverse America who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us, our planet, our children, our parents, or defend us and uphold our inalienable rights,” said current cast-member Brandon Victor Dixon Friday night as the rest of the cast stood behind him. “But we hope this show has inspired you to uphold our American values, and work on behalf of all of us.”
Trump demanded that the cast apologize in two tweets sent out Saturday morning: “Our wonderful future V.P. Mike Pence was harassed last night at the theater by the cast of Hamilton, cameras blazing. This should not happen!,” Trump wrote. “The Theater must always be a safe and special place. The cast of Hamilton was very rude last night to a very good man, Mike Pence. Apologize!”
