Hey, Can I Borrow A Reagan?

July 26, 2008


“It sounds like a good time to re-start the conversation about getting Reagan on the $10 bill,” Norquist said. “I don’t know why the Bush administration has dropped the ball on this.”
[ & Nays – Only three years left till Reagan’s birthday!]

I think this is a fantastic idea. What better way to honor one of Our most beloved forefathers— the one responsible for laying the groundwork of our exploitive corporate financial system, and advocating a system of political corruption as a means of control over the legislature —than to replace his image on the tenpiece with that of the greatest look-good, do-nothing executive figurehead, the crown of Hamilton’s achievement, representing the very zenith of Empire?

    Hamilton’s financial system had then past. It had two objects. 1st as a puzzle, to exclude popular understanding & inquiry. 2dly, as a machine for the corruption of the legislature; for he avowed the opinion that man could be governed by one of two motives only, force or interest: force he observed, in this country, was out of the question; and the interests therefore of the members must be laid hold of, to keep the legislature in unison with the Executive. And with grief and shame it must be acknowledged that his machine was not without effect. That even in this, the birth of our government, some members were found sordid enough to bend their duty to their interests, and to look after personal, rather than public good.
