I attended Ethan Allen Institute’s annual Jefferson Day Dinner last night where Governor Douglas made a special appearance to sign the Eminent Domain Bill (S.246) into law before dinner started. EAI’s president John McClaughry was the driving force behind S.246.
Willard Sterne Randall was the guest speaker for the event. His talk was titled “Jefferson and Hamilton: Who?s Winning?”. It was fascinating to learn many of the amazing things that both Jefferson and Hamilton were instrumental in starting at the founding of our country.
Ethan Allen Institute is Vermont’s libertarian economic think tank which means there were many libertarians to talk with, and like most of their events I met several interesting Vermonters.
