The title declares the discussion of Alexander Hamilton on the injustice and malice being purported against the American Loyalists in 1784. The whole hearted defrauding and disfranchising of many new citizens without trial or judgement of peers. Hamilton lectured that a particular party in order to advance itself took the position against these persons and generalized them as vile and criminal.
Let the people beware…..a few designing men may rise in consequence, and advance their private interest by such expedients, the people at large are sure to be the losers in the event, whenever they suffer a departure from the rules of general and equal justice, or from the true principles of universal liberty.
Those men not only overleap the barriers of the constitution without remorse, but they advise us to become the scorn of nations by violating the solemn engagements.
So too the recent movement of the Republican Establishment, so bent on the retention of power. So worried of the loss of thier hold and of what is right and wrong in both the workplace and bedroom that it is wrent on the discarding of the votes of the citizens for Donald Trump as the nominee of their party.
While this writer is not in any part for the party or it’s presumptive nominee, who it fails to support, there is reason to call out the injustice and apparent disdain by these men, some of whom are former Presidents themselves, for the vote of people of such a party. The Republican Establishment Party Leaders are in all aspects holding the ballot box by the people hostage to the whims of an elite grouping of conservative billionaires.
Hamilton at the same time wrote:
Nothing is more common that for a free people in times of heat and violence, to gratify momentary passions by letting in the government principles and precedents which afterwards prove fatal to themselves…. the dangerous consequence of this power are manifest….it may soon confine all the votes to a small number of partisans, and establish an aristocracy or an oligarchy.
It may already be too late for the United States but we can pray to God Almighty, that a government by the people, for the people has not perished from this earth in favor of the few who would pursue for the advancement of their own perception of what is therefore right or wrong establish such an Oligarchy at the expense of the freedom of the vote.
