I see your man Hamilton was a student of Plato. Plato had words to say about democracy, and in Athens, the birthplace of the notion, he was firmly against it.
I love those founding fathers of yours. They were idealists, they faced a problem, they found a solution and Abraham Lincoln was able to base his own efforts on theirs.
A pity that their successors gradually lost their way. Dialectic is no longer well regarded, but sophistry rules.
