Alexander Hamilton: Some US History Guy

Alexander Hamilton is mostly known today as that guy on the ten dollar bill. But why is he on the ten dollar bill, and not, say, James Madison? James Madison wrote the damn Constitution and was a president during a damn war where we got fucking invaded and crap. And he WON that war. What did Hamilton ever do, win People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive in 1799?

And what about Thomas Jefferson? Another great, great president, and what do we do? We put him on the two dollar bill, which we don’t even fucking use anymore. Everybody hated the two dollar bill. We should have put a president everybody hated on that thing, like Warren Harding. Jefferson deserves better–why not put HIM on the ten dollar bill, and not some non-presidential duel loser like Alexander Hamilton. Jesus.

We hope that answers all your questions about Alexander Hamilton.
