Quotation: Alexander Hamilton on the duty of elected officials (“Duty, ha? What a forgotten concept!…or is it with whom their duty rests?”)

When occasions present themselves, in which the interests of the people are at variance with their inclinations, it is the duty of the persons whom they have appointed to be the guardians of those interests.

Alexander Hamilton (1755-1804) Discuss

Hamilton performs a response to Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s poem about him from Aaron Burr’s perspective. Thomas Jefferson accompanies him on piano.
