One of the most important set of documents in our Nation's history is a group of letters to the editor written by Alexander Hamilton, John Jay and James Madison known as the Federalist Papers. The United States had just experienced a weak central government in the form of a loose confederacy. So weak that it exposed the different states to both intrigue and foreign invasion.
In fact, the "Whiskey Rebellion", launched by a group of private still owners that had no interest in paying taxes, showed just how vulnerable the new nation was.
The fear of a strong central government, after fighting a war with King George over unjust laws and taxation, was still fresh in the minds of many Patriots. "That government which governs best, governs least", was their motto. They found a strong and powerful ally in the Governor of New York. The Federalist Papers were directed at New York and other states that resisted the new Constitution. Obviously, they were very effective. I quote from the first of these letters, by Alexander Hamilton:
"AFTER an unequivocal experience of the inefficiency of the subsisting federal government, you are called upon to deliberate on a new Constitution for the United States of America. The subject speaks its own importance; comprehending in its consequences nothing less than the existence of the UNION, the safety and welfare of the parts of which it is composed, the fate of an empire in many respects the most interesting in the world. It has been frequently remarked that it seems to have been reserved to the people of this country, by their conduct and example, to decide the important question, whether societies of men are really capable or not of establishing good government from reflection and choice, or whether they are forever destined to depend for their political constitutions on accident and force. If there be any truth in the remark, the crisis at which we are arrived may with propriety be regarded as the era in which that decision is to be made; and a wrong election of the part we shall act may, in this view, deserve to be considered as the general misfortune of mankind." (Source)
Hamilton continues by explaining how petty local interests could threaten national ones:
Among the most formidable of the obstacles which the new Constitution will have to encounter may readily be distinguished the obvious interest of a certain class of men in every State to resist all changes which may hazard a diminution of the power, emolument, and consequence of the offices they hold under the State establishments; and the perverted ambition of another class of men, who will either hope to aggrandize themselves by the confusions of their country, or will flatter themselves with fairer prospects of elevation from the subdivision of the empire into several partial confederacies than from its union under one government. (Ibid)
What Hamilton and the other founders feared is that the Union would be replaced by various alliances, or confederacies by the states. This would then expose the country to foreign powers that understood the advantages of "divide and conquer". Hamilton then explains that the Federalist Papers would address the following issues:
THE UTILITY OF THE UNION TO YOUR POLITICAL PROSPERITY
THE INSUFFICIENCY OF THE PRESENT CONFEDERATION TO PRESERVE THAT UNION
THE NECESSITY OF A GOVERNMENT AT LEAST EQUALLY ENERGETIC WITH THE ONE PROPOSED, TO THE ATTAINMENT OF THIS OBJECT
THE CONFORMITY OF THE PROPOSED CONSTITUTION TO THE TRUE PRINCIPLES OF REPUBLICAN GOVERNMENT
ITS ANALOGY TO YOUR OWN STATE CONSTITUTION
and lastly, THE ADDITIONAL SECURITY WHICH ITS ADOPTION WILL AFFORD TO THE PRESERVATION OF THAT SPECIES OF GOVERNMENT, TO LIBERTY, AND TO PROPERTY. (ibid.)
There are those that would argue that the Constitution was a Rothschild-Illuminati creation. Yet, to paraphrase the banker Rothschild: "I care not who makes the laws of a nation, as long as I control its money".
The State of New York was run by the "monied interests". They were the threat to passage of the Constitution. Hamilton, Jay and Madison effectively neutralized them with the "Federalist Papers". As I have stated in previous articles, in exchange for America's Independence, Rothschild and his bankster buddies were given a minority interest in the First National Bank.
While some look at this as a form of treason, the War of 1812 demonstrated that England could take back its colonies at will. Hamilton was a true American Patriot, albeit a pragmatic one. I am sure most Americans would be happy to have a majority interest in our current Federal Reserve system, instead of no ownership, which is what we have now. Unlike Alexander Hamilton and the other Founding Fathers, we are a powerful enough nation to take control of our money supply.
