    Alexander Hamilton was a trip!

    Where would we be today without him?

    Alexander Hamilton, (born January 11, 1755,) pretty much created Wall Street / Stocks and Bonds. He favored a strong central government, a strong military and a better relationship with England. He was leery of France.

    (If left up to Thomas Jefferson we would have all been farmers in an agrarian society.)

    Washington supported young Alexander since his arrival to America at age eighteen. He was able to write extremely well and his talents were much needed.

    Alexander depended on George Washington's support on many levels throughout his thirty one years in America.

    George even stood by Alexander after he publicly printed EVERY SINGLE love letter his mistress, (Maria Reynolds, a 23-year-old blonde,) had sent him to prove that he never used a dime of public money and only committed adultery!! lol

    I think that is hilarious!

    Hamilton lost his chance to be president due to his affair which he realized had been prompted by his own vanity.

    That he did not become president, (or his son either, who also lost his life in a duel which his father supported two years prior to Hamilton's own fatal duel with Aaron Burr) must have been devastating to him.

    Can the two parties ever compromise? Both are good in their own way.
    Each must recognize the good and the sense of the other.
    The two views must blend.
    Like a mother, (Democrats,) and a father, (Republicans).

    Yang: Father =  What is practical / logic based.
    Yin:  Mother = What is idealistic / love based.

    Both are needed ... as in the Yin and Yang sign!

    Perhaps the inability to balance Yin and Yang is a national crisis on more than one level!

    Hamilton, (Federalist, actually a Republican) and Jefferson, (Republican, actually a Liberal/ Presidential candidate) were at odds with one another.
    But in sight of a worse enemy, Arron Burr, a 100% selfish greedy lawyer/Presidential candidate,) Hamilton was forced to support Jefferson for president and recognize his good-will for the nation.

    (He himself should have been running, but Noooooo ! He just had to have that affair!)

      Perhaps Washington was a Balancer and a Unifier of these principles in Govt.
      which Presidential candidate could do this today?

      sadly ...
