Cause Alexander Hamilton is acting like a chump,Mess around with the states, and you're gonna get dumped.I like state's' rights, we don't want to be Britain,With a big king hidden where the president is sittin'.We need to keep the power in the hands of the locals,Oh Madison, can't see it? Go ask Ben for bifocals!Washington: Okay Jefferson I hear your point, but you haven't explained why you feel this way. Please explain for us as to why you are angry with Mr. Hamilton.Jefferson: Look, when Britain taxed our tea, we got friskyImagine what gon’ happen when you try to tax our whiskyWhiskey is the well being of the American nationTaxing it would be against my very own creation,The declaration,My sweet baby, i know what i wrote, and the rights and liberties in which we promoteThis tax simply won't win over Washington’s voteYou want to send troops for people rebelling against a tax that is unfairLet's discuss something that is unjust such as your affairOh funny now that it pertains to you, you see how much a certain event can damage one's futureIf this tax continues in America, you will have to sow one hell of a sutureAmerica is the land of the free and home of the braveYou allowing this tax is basically you digging your own graveRun along now i’ve said all i need to say
Wow! That was some intense rap battle between you too and both of you made good points.
Good evening ladies and gentlemen, tonight we have a very special treat in store for you. Tonight we have Jefferson and Hamilton discussing the Whiskey Rebellion. As you know, Jefferson is completely against the tax on whiskey, and Hamilton is for the tax on whiskey. Jefferson why don't you start things off for us,and tell us a bit about your opinion.
Thomas Jefferson you may speak
I am Jefferson
Look, when Britain taxed our tea, we got frisky, Imagine whats going to happen when you try to tax our whiskey. Whiskey is the well being of the American nation, Taxing it would be against my very own creation, The declaration, My friend, I know what I wrote, and the rights and the liberties in which we promote. This tax simply won't win over Washington’s vote. You want to send troops for people rebelling against a tax that is unfair, let's discuss something that is unjust such as your affair. Oh funny now that it pertains to you, you see how much a certain event can damage one's future. America is the land of the free and home of the brave. You allowing this tax to be is basically you digging your own grave. All you do is be unjust and unfair and use lies and make unreasonable affairs. It's like falling down the stairs except you won't use your brain like I said before if you continue the tax the people will riot and take out the ax you can try it but they most likely won't relax if you keep up with your acts. What you're trying to do you're just doing it for more clout but go ahead and run along, I've said what I've needed to say for now, Jefferson out.
I am Hamilton
Humans are selfish and don't deserve our trust, limiting the power of the people is a must. You told me to try it and that if I do they will riot but you can't seem to understand how important these taxes are and there is something called adjustment so when it works and I prove to the world that you're wrong and i'm right please try not to cry after this long lasted "fight". A strong central government is the only solution, or we'll be in anarchy, like the French Revolution. The country should be ruled by rich, educated men,people like myself, give the power to them. As for our economy, some changes should be made by promoting business, manufacturing and trade. We should keep this whiskey tax because it will help us and our strong government so Jefferson relax. The power that we give to the states should be weaker, and by the way, Jefferson, you're a bad public speaker!
Those new industries might not even make it, as for the profits, only a few will take it. Don't tax the whiskey, that's their main source of profit, the farmers will be sure to rebel if ya do it! Funding our debts would only benefit the wealthy and make the rest suffer and ya know that ain't healthy. A national bank? Uh uh, no way! We'll end up corrupt, just like the bank of the UK!! Nowhere in the Constitution is that freedom stated Necessary & Proper? Well, that could be debated. Psh you don't know who and what you're talking about. Might i also mention, this might not have been your intention, but now that i've got your attention, you did not make a good first impression. The rich only matter to you, so why don’t you just leave us alone, cause we are through! Sit down Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson out!
A tariff on imports is what we should impose, to strengthen our infant industries at home. We need to save our values, so let's tax the whiskey. Plus we're deep in debt, so we need to be thrifty. The Whiskey Excise will cut down on consumption, and pay off all our debt in my Plan of assumption cuz if we want America's respected status to last, we need to pay off our debts, and pay them off fast. As for the Constitution, my interpretations loose. Let's build a national bank and then put it to use! You're a has-been, I'm famous still! I even got my face on the 10 dollar bill!
People aren't evil, I have faith in them. They can make their own decisions, trust the good sense of men. The French Revolution was a glorious day, just like the Revolution of the USA! Power to the wealthy, now that I don't condone. Give the power to the farmers, cuz they're our backbone. Our future is in agriculture, not business or industry, by limiting their growth, we'll have a strong economy. Our government's strength should like within the states. We must stop tyranny before it's too late. I might not make great speeches, but I write with much eloquence. If you want proof, read the Declaration of Independence!
