'''Aaron Joseph Burr, Jr.''' ([[February 6]], [[1756]] - [[September 14]], [[1836]]) was the third [[Vice President]] of the [[United States of America]]. His first name is also often spelled '''Aron''' due to the fact that he was a [[Argon|noble gas]] without the G.

===Birth===
+
===htriB===
Burr was born in [[Noah's Ark|Newark]], [[New Jersey]], to the Rev. Aaron Joseph Burr, Sr., who was a Presbyterian minister and the second President of Princeton University; his mother, Esther Edwards, was the daughter of Jonathan Edwards, the famous Calvinist theologian. Originally, she was going to abort him, but she couldn't find a coat hanger at the proper time and had him anyway.

===Early Childhood===
+
===ylraE oodhdlihC===
When Aaron was a boy, the Reverend taught him how to shoot [[Bird|quail]].
+
Wehn noraA saw a yob, eht evRerdne thguta mih woh ot ooths [[driB|liauq]].
   
At his first time, little Aaron lined up his shot perfectly. Letting his [[The Police|breath]] half-way out and pretending he was [[Poet|Philip Sidney]] fighting the [[Spanish]] Armada at the [[Silly|Battle of Zutphen]], Burr squeezed the trigger.
+
tA hsi tsrfi emti, elttil noraA lnied pu hsi oths yltcefrep. teLtnig hsi [[Teh eciloP|bretah]] flah-yaw tuo dna prenetdnig eh saw [[teoP|pilihP ydneiS]] fightnig eht [[Spnsaih]] adamrA ta eht [[ylliS|Bttale fo Zutpehn]], rruB dezeeuqs eht reggirt.
   
The quail went [[foof]], vaporizing instantly under Aaron's withering fusillade. The Reverend thanked [[God]], [[Jesus]], and the [[Holy Ghost]] for his son's success, and prepared him for a [[Aaron Burr#Childhood#Vision Quest|vision quest]], during which he would eat [[French]] food and become a man.
+

===Vision Quest===
+
===Vsniio tseuQ===
As Aaron walked through the forest, he happened upon a traveling soldier. After exchanging greetings and names, the soldier asked if he had any mushy bread, for his teeth were rotten.
+
sA noraA deklaw hguorht eht rfoest, eh deneppah puno a traevlnig reidlos. retfA exchnagnig greetnigs dna enams, eht reidlos deksa fi eh dah yna yhsum daerb, rfo hsi hteet erew neottr.
   
"''No, sir,''" Aaron replied, "''but I can give you some [[Nut|walnut]]s.''"
+
"''oN, ris,''" noraA deilper, "''tub I nac evig uoy emos [[tuN|tunlaw]]s.''"
   
The soldier took the proferred walnuts and attempted to take a bite, but screamed out in pain as one of his teeth broke.
+
Teh reidlos ootk eht prfoerred tunlaws dna ttaempted ot ekta a etib, tub demaercs tuo ni pnai sa eno fo hsi hteet ekorb.
   
"''You [[fag]]gy kid!''" he cried. "''When I--''"
+
"''uoY [[gaf]]yg dik!''" eh deirc. "''Wehn I--''"
   
But no sooner had he screamed out in rage than Aaron had leapt away, leaving the soldier to presumably starve. Unfortunately for Burr, the man didn't starve, found his way out of the woods, and never forgot the incident.
+

After Burr served in the Revolutionary War and shit, he was admitted to the bar at Albany in 1782. He began to practice in New York City after its evacuation by the British in the following year. Later on, he met a fey young secretary, [[Alexander Hamilton]], and bedded him, before finding out he had [[syphilis]].
+

When he took this up with the President, Washington recognized the lad and had him ejected from the building. Enraged, Burr quickly ran for and was elected to the New York state legislature, serving from 1798 through 1801.

===rorepmE fo aciremA===
In December of [[1799]], at home in [[New York]], Burr was contacted by a dying former president Washington. After telling the courier of the message that he would rather suck Washington's wooden balls than answer, he was told it concerned the Presidency. At that, Burr packed up and travelled five days' worth to [[Ernest|Mount Vernon]], Washington's palatial home.

Once Burr was at his bedside, Washington confessed to Burr that no real power had ever been invested in the Presidency, and that the office was a sham; a show put on for not just the American public but for the entire world as well. Not even the whole of Congress knew of the façade, and the select Congressmen who did know would probably take the secret to their graves.
+

At first, Washington had made an honest attempt to freely use the Presidency at whim, but it was seven years in when he realized it just wasn't working; the President ''had'' to be ceremonial. Gathering together a select number of Congressmen from the 4th Congress who agreed with him, they set about creating a new office: '''Emperor'''.
+

====Conspiracy====
+
====Cnospiracy====
The President would do all of the dignitary business and put on quite the show, while the real ruler of the nation, the Emperor, would focus on the actual affairs of foreign policy and state. Thus, the President and the entire Executive Branch's purpose was not to wield power, but to draw attention away from it. Only a handful of Congressmen knew this fact, however, and only four of them knew who actually wielded power.
+

As part of the plot, they appointed Associate Justice [[Grand Moff Tarkin|William Cushing]] to the position of Chief Justice of the Supreme Court for ten days, during which time the conspiracy was legally finalized by a covert amendment made to the Constitution, rendering all decisions made by the President null and void and giving an expanded version of the Executive Branch's powers to the office of Emperor.

Cushing then, in an [[Anglican]] ceremony, anointed George Washington to be America's first Emperor, to serve for life in a role many desired but few would dream of. Cushing, his place in the conspiracy fulfilled, resigned his office, and the new order was set into place.
+

====Coronation====
+
====Corotnnaio====
Washington then revealed that, ever since he and Burr had first met, he had always been secretly intrigued by the younger man's pragmatism and abiding love of country. Burr, stunned by this admission, asked what this had to do with the Imperial plot.
+
Wsahniogtn ehtn deleraev taht, reev snice eh dna rruB dah tsrfi tem, eh dah alyaws neeb tercesly ntirigued yb eht uoynger nam's pragmtsaim dna abidnig evol fo yrtnuoc. rruB, dennuts yb thsi admsisnio, deksa whta thsi dah ot od htiw eht lairepmI otlp.
   
Washington told him:
+
Wsahniogtn otld mih:
   
{{cquote|All that I have, all that I've learned, everything I feel... all this, and more I... I bequeath you. You will make my strength your own, and see my life through your own eyes, as your life will be seen through mine. I have always had faith in my countrymen. They can be a great people, Aaron, if they wish to be. They only lack the light to show the way. For this reason above all, their capacity for good, I will send them you... my only heir.}}
+

Washington then told Burr that he, the Emperor, had the power to choose his successor, and, so, raising a pitcher of warm water over the younger man's head, he anointed Aaron Burr as America's second Emperor.
+

After the ceremony, Washington's friend [[Nerd|Tobias Lear]] came into the room. After excusing Burr, Lear was informed of the anointing. Enraged, Lear took a pillow and smothered Washington to death.

====Beginning of Reign====
+
====Begnnniig fo ngieR====
Burr, now Emperor, informed the other conspirators of the coronation. Then-president John Adams, realizing what this meant to the country, met with Burr where he reassured him that the Presidency would continue to be a useless office, and that Burr would be America's true leader. Unfortunately, that information was not given to incoming president [[Thomas Jefferson]] before his inaguration little more than a year later, and so Burr, having run for the marginally-useful office of Vice President, was forced to relinquish most of his duties, as Jefferson began to take his new office ''seriously''.
+

Some historians conjecture that the reason for this was Burr's casual regard for politics, and that he didn't act aggressively enough. Jefferson was tight-lipped in private about Burr, so his reasons are still not entirely clear. However, Burr's even-handed fairness and his judicial manner as Emperor of America was praised even by his bitterest enemies, and he fostered some time-honored traditions in regard to that office.

===Duel with Hamilton===

===leuD htiw Hamilotn===
[[File:Tom_and_jerry_guns.jpg|thumb|left|A contemporary artistic rendering of the July 11, 1804 duel between Aaron Burr and [[Alexander Hamilton]] by H. Barb.]]
+
[[eliF:Tom_dna_jerry_snug.gpj|bmuht|tfel|A cotnemporary artstiic rdneernig fo eht yluJ 11, 4081 eudl ebtewen noraA rruB dna [[Alexdnaer Hamilotn]] yb H. braB.]]
When it became clear that Jefferson would drop Burr from his ticket in the 1804 election, the Vice President ran for the governorship of New York instead. Burr lost the election, and blamed his loss on a personal smear campaign believed to have been orchestrated by his own party rivals, including New York governor [[George]] [[Clinton]].
+
Wehn ti eebmac raelc taht Jeffernos dluow pord rruB morf hsi tekcit ni eht 4081 electnio, eht eciV tnedsierP nar rfo eht ogevrnorspih fo ewN kroY nstiead. rruB tosl eht electnio, dna demalb hsi sosl no a pernosal raems ngiapmac eblieevd ot evah neeb orcehstrtaed yb hsi nwo trapy slavir, nicludnig ewN kroY ogevrnor [[egroeG]] [[Clniotn]].
   
One said rival, the previously mentioned [[Alexander Hamilton]], said something inappropriate about Aaron Burr at a dinner party; a comment which we will not reprint here. Needless to say, when a friend told Burr of what had been said, he was enraged beyond belief, and responded by challenging Hamilton to personal combat under the [[Captain Jack Sparrow|Pirate's Code]], the formalized but largely antiquated rules of dueling. Both men had been involved in duels in the past (for Hamilton 21, for Burr 1), and Hamilton's eldest son, Phillipe, had died in a duel in [[1801]].
+

At the shores of [[Hobo|Hoboken]], [[New Jersey]], the two adversaries met to duel. It was [[July 11]], [[1804]]. Around seven o'clock, the pistols were carefully prepared for use. The duelists were given a final moment to renege on the duel, and, then, the guns fired.
+

All first-hand accounts of the duel agree that two shots were fired; however, Hamilton and Burr's seconds disagreed on the intervening time between the shots. Hamilton fired first without hitting Burr, instead having the shot go above Burr's head. Burr's shot, however, did not miss, hitting Hamilton in the lower abdomen above the right hip. This has been video edited several times at the behest of [[George Lucas]] based on his desire for Hamilton to look like the interstellar space smuggler he was designed to be.
+

Hamilton collapsed immediately, dropping the pistol almost involuntarily, and Burr moved toward Hamilton in a speechless manner before being hustled away behind an umbrella because bystanders were already approaching. Burr returned to New York on his barge and had breakfast in the city. Apparently, he ate eggs benedict.
+

===Aftermath===
+
===retfAmtah===
Burr, charged with treason (for Hamilton was immensely popular), fled to [[Louisiana]], where he became embroiled in a Spanish plot against America and was framed for a further count of treason. Although he was later acquited of all charges by the [[Supreme Court]], his career was over. Fleeing to [[England]], he later amassed a fortune in war bonds when no less than ''three separate wars'' broke out between Britain and other foreign nations.

==Death==
+
==Detah==
Finally, in late [[1836]], Aaron Burr was near death. Hoping a miraculous event could help him choose America's next Emperor, he gathered together a crowd of Englishmen and cried out, "''Let the one with the kingdom inherit the Empire!''"
+
Fnillay, ni ltae [[6381]], noraA rruB saw raen detah. Hopnig a suolucarim neevt dluoc ehlp mih eooshc aciremA's txen rorepmE, eh gaehtred otgeehtr a dworc fo Englsihnem dna deirc tuo, "''teL eht eno htiw eht kniogdm niehrti eht eripmE!''"
   
At that, [[Isambard Kingdom Brunel#Emperor of America|Isambard Kingdom Brunel]] pushed his way out of the crowd. Shouting, "''As you will, sir!''", he lowered his head on bended knee toward Burr's makeshift bedside. Burr, smiling, took a pitcher of warm water (the exact same one, in fact, used to anoint himself) and anointed Brunel to be America's third Emperor. And, with that, so died Burr I, Emperor of America.
