Forward Movement

If you’re looking for fairness to Hamilton, you’re listening to the wrong show!
— Clay

From the Encyclopedia Virginia: "A fire, caused by faulty electrical wiring, started in the annex on October 27, 1895."

On this 1776 Club broadcast, Clay & David discuss letters from listeners Eric N. and Andrew M. on a wide variety of subjects, including a few that may be the centerpieces of upcoming shows. Among these are the Kentucky resolutions and the founding of the University of Virginia.

Clay: Today, we had a meeting and we made some very big commitments to — I don't want to say improvements —
David: Forward movement.
Clay: It's going to be an interesting year, let's put it that way. My goal is the same always: I want the Jefferson Hour to proliferate because I believe that Jefferson is the answer. I don't believe that Donald Trump is the answer, I frankly don't believe that Bernie Sanders is the answer, I don't believe that Mrs. Clinton is the answer, I don't believe that Joe Biden is the answer. They're all interesting, but I think that the answer is a new Jeffersonian movement.
