The "HAMILTON (ORIGINAL BROADWAY CAST RECORDING)" is executive produced by Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson and Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter, founding members of the Grammy Award winning hip-hop band, The Roots. "HAMILTON" has book, music and lyrics by Tony and Grammy Award-winning composer Lin Manuel Miranda, who also plays the title role.

$14.57Alexander Hamilton - The Politics of Treason
A film about the political influence of Alexander Hamilton, and his misguided and unconstitutional views on the constitutional American government. In this video, we study Hamilton's desire to destroy the concept of state governments, as an art form, as well as his thoughts on a permanent dictator for life in the executive office. His was the first plan to promote the Northern traitors of the American Revolution, then called Federalists, and to have the federal over top of the states in all matters, whatsoever. His ideas to bring us back under the colonial condition would be described as treason by none other than Thomas Jefferson, himself. Hamilton's dream of a permanent national debt as being some sort of a perverted 'blessing' upon the nation, his dream of a national bank to launder through the political corruption of the Eastern states and their corporate welfare scams of protectionism, and his desire to make the federal responsible for all state debts from the war (when the South had already been paying their fair share, and would thus have to pay twice) are all examples of Hamiltonian corruption in the general government. His Jay Treaty, which favored the Anglomaniacal North at the expense of the South, his so-called Whiskey Rebellion against the people of Pennsylvania for not paying one of his own personally-crafted tax schemes, and his idea to make all state laws subordinate to federal rule all serve to show a man who was so treasonous in his workings as a politician that he defies actual description. Now we can know exactly how the Liberals of today think that they can do as they please, and get completely away with it. Their god is American Socialism, and Alexander Hamilton be thy name. But it is time that Hamilton finally gets recognized for who he really was, despite all of the blather that he pretended to believe when he wrote the so-called Federalist papers.When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.
