Will Wilkinson splains why Hamilton is better than Jefferson. For one, Jefferson was "anti-cosmopolitan"! But of course!
He was also "utopian" (does this mean principled)? He was also "sly, creepy, and an insufferable snob"--but wait, I'm confused, I thought he was NOT a cosmopolitan (aww, just FUNNIN' ya cosmotards).
And golly, Jefferson was also a slaveholding racist--in contrast to Hamilton, whom Wilkinson says "was against slavery" -- although, as wikipedia notes, Hamilton "returned an escaped slave to a friend ... returned a fugitive slave to Henry Laurens of South Carolina ... may have owned household slaves himself ... and he did buy and sell them on behalf of others"; and no doubt, Hamilton would have been pleased as punch if one of his daughters had wanted to marry a black man--what else can you expect of a nineteenth century cosmopolitan?
Wilkinson also declares Jefferson's Louisiana Purchase to be unconstitutional, as it surely was--yet I wonder, hmm, whether Wilkinson joins with other Catoites in favoring a strained interpretation of the illegal Fourteenth Amendment to grant powers to the feds that were never intended...?
