Fiscally Conservative, Socially tolerant, Anti-War
Didn't know that. Also in Trinity Church cemetery is John Jacob Astor and many of his well-heeledprogeny. Does one put Asters onthe Astor graves?
Remember Mary Astor? She was hot!
That he was an early statist?I prefer Ashtons thank you very much.
Yep. And he also advocated a permanent Presidency, a wide interpretation of the term, "general welfare" (not to mention, the commerce clause), bounties to manufacturers, and a massive increase in the money supply (inflation averaged 12-14% a year from 1791 to 1796). To say that the fellow was the Lincoln, Hoover, FDR, LBJ, Bush 2, and Obama of his time is probably about right (that, and his First Bank of the United States was an early forerunner of the FED).
The bastard.Really:"The illegitimate son of a Scottish immigrant father and a British West Indian mother (who happened to be married to someone else)"
