America is Living Under Alexander Hamilton's Curse

There is no doubt once real history is revealed. The truth comes out who is real and who is not. When the former English Colonies ratified the Constitution. There were two groups of thought. There was the Federalist and the Anti Federalist. The Federalist had a vision of a centralized government. The anti federalists were the people who foreseen what would happen when corruption took hold of the government. This is why they opposed the Constitution and were quite happy with the Articles of Confederation.

Alexander Hamilton was a great fighter during the revolution under General George Washington. He was a Federalist who believed in a strong centralized Government and opposed the Articles of Confederation. He helped start the First National Bank of the United States. He was an agent of the Bank of England convincing George Washington to have a Private Central Bank issue the currency. The 20-year Charter ended in 1811 because the Congress refused to renew the charter.

Alexander Hamilton wanted to anoint George Washington as King. Thank God, he refused the title. Alexander Hamilton has written much in the Federalist Papers making some valid points. In addition, he wanted a strong centralized government. Hamilton and the other Federalist began attacking the Bill of Rights passing the Alien Sedition acts of 1798. He was the first treasurer of the United State in Washington's cabinet. Alexander Hamilton if he were alive today would be happy top see his vision at work. Thank goodness, Hamilton died in a duel for being the scallywag he was working for the bankers.

How is Hamilton's vision a reality? Well Obama is almost a king. He has usurped the power of congress and the states. He has grabbed power wherever he can furthering his hold on power. Again Hamilton wanted to make George Washington King. Hamilton was a Monarchist.

We have Mercantilism where a certain select few corporations have advantage over their competition. They lobby and use the force of government to shut down their competitors much like the merchant class and corporations like the East Indian Trading Company. Hamilton was for monopolies in commerce and trade. He was not in favor of free markets.

We have a powerful centralized government that is in every facet in our lives from Education to Commerce. The Federal government has been increasing in size over many decades furthering circumventing state's rights and individual liberties. This is what Hamilton wanted and now I see why the anti Federalist were so adamant not seeing the Constitution ratified unless there was the Bill of Rights being included. The foreseen what would happen if the Constitution were ratified. There were content with the Articles of Confederation.

Hamilton would love the NDAA and the Patriot Act because back in 1798, he was part of passing the Alien and Sedition Act arresting people for speaking out against the government. The first attack on free speech happened in no time.

Last but not least. Hamilton wanted a private Central Bank modeled after the Bank of England. He had the First National Bank of the United States chartered convince congress and the President until 1811 when the charter was not renewed because Vice President George Clinton cast the tie-breaking vote in the Senate not in favor of renewing the charter. Now we have the Federal Reserve Bank that has been open for almost 100 years. Alexander's Hamilton's dream coming true. A country in debt to a Private Central Bank with a debt based currency.

Alexander Hamilton's dream is our nightmare. We are now living under Hamilton's curse. We see it in everything. So tell me, are we living under the blessings of liberty or a curse by an agent of the bankers? Ron Paul being the modern day Thomas Jefferson might set us free from Hamilton's curse of we stay vigilant. If we keep exposing the fraud and hold fast to what we believe to know it true. If good men stand up, the universe will bend toward justice setting us free from Alexander Hamilton's curse.


  1. Consider Pat Buchanan's take on things. He says Hamilton was a tariff supporter. Alex wanted to protect American high wages and fund the Federal Government by a tariff an imports. Sounds like a pretty good idea to me. High wages here? What's wrong with that, I'd like to know.

  2. Hamilton was not "an agent" of the Bank of England. He grew up in British Caribbean, was dirt poor, and was largely self educated. He admired England for having a well orchestrated, public, banking system which politicians were accountable for. At this time - the mid eighteenth century - the American colonies had many reoccurring financial troubles. The Federalists, George Washington included, were very skeptical of the banking industry, thus their vision was to have the Bank of the United States work hand-in-hand and be accountable to the treasury. The Federal Reserve was created under a very different mandate, was clandestinely passed, and is accountable to nobody. The Anti-Federalists (which would later become the Jeffersonian Republicans) did have many issues with the ratified constitution. However, their disagreements were largely for economic reasons. Under the articles of confederation there were no 'negative rights' (things that the government was not allowed to do to individuals) and each state had very different, and often contradicting, sets of rights. Anti-Federalists were the largest landholders in the country, and the value of their property came from the number of acres and slaves they held. Under the ratified constitution, the south had to uphold the negative rights put in place, which mean no more abuse of the citizenry (unless you were a slave of course). While the Anti-Federalists were patriots in their own way, they were by no means the messiah.

    The Federalists only got two presidents in office - Washington and John Adams (John Quincy Adams' father). The Jefferson's Democratic-Republicans had three consecutive Presidents - Jefferson, James Madison, and James Monroe, and this period of consecutive Presidents is was coined "The Era of Good Feelings" by George Dangerfield. Each of these Presidents campaigned on a platform that was the opposite of the Federalists' vision of a well governed centralized system. They quickly found, however, that their 'libertarian' (and I use that word very cautiously because libertarianism had not yet been conceived) minded views simply did not work, and each broke their so-called ideologies to get business done. Jefferson bought the Louisanna territory from the French, using an executive order - bypassing the Congress. Madison had to create the Second National Bank of the USA (which was accountable to the treasury) because the destruction of the First National Bank by Jefferson led to rapid inflation, economic crisis, and corruption among small banks, as there was no regulation or rules of conduct. Monroe (with the help of John Quincy Adams) initiated the 'Monroe Doctrine', which stated that the United States has sole control over the hemisphere; this functioned as a blueprint for the American Empire, something that the Jefferson and his cohorts has warned against.

    It is true that Hamilton wanted to name Washington king, and that he (Hamilton) idealized the British Empire. Yet, he was correct that a bunch of rogue states with no consistent rights, laws, or money system, and held together by a loose confederation would not last long. Without the Federal government, it is quite possible that England would have reinvaded the territory. In fact, many historical books have cited documents describing the both France and England's desire to reacquire North America.
