"Wise politicians will be cautious about fettering the government
with restrictions that cannot be observed, because they know that
every break of the fundamental laws, though dictated by necessity,
impairs that sacred reverence which ought to be maintained in
the breast of rulers towards the constitution of a country."
Alexander Hamilton
(1757-1804) American statesman, Secretary of the Treasury
Federalist No. 25, 21 December 1787. Reference: Hamilton, Federalist No. 25 (167)

Reader comments about this quote:
Wise servants will be cautious about 'not' fettering government. The law of nature and of nature's God ought to be maintained inviolate with a sacred reverence in the breast of the sovereign's (We The People) and their representativ servant administrators. The individual sovereigns are the rulers, not their representatives. Codes, ordinances, regulations, rules, statutes ought to harmonize with law so that the honor and nobility of life, freedom, liberty, property (complete with allodial freehold, intellectual, labor, etc.), etc. will be recognized and protected without infraction. Designing (wise, hmm, not) politicians will never let a crisis go to waste for there are never ending ways to break fundamental laws for the purpose of establishing dictate by necessity.

    Hamilton was one of the original traitors to the newly formed US and an arch enemy of Jefferson. Hamilton was the guy who let the Brits back in through the back door when he advocated and laid the ground work for English central banking to regain control of American's and their currency. It could be argued that he was one of the founders of the system that brought us "The Fed". I see no merit in a statement that comes from an obvious fraud artist. He's lying.

    I'm with you guys -- I am sure this is how Hamilton established the first private central bank in the new USA that literally broke the nation. Luckily Jefferson killed the bank when he beccame president.

    Wise "politicians" fettering the government? What politician would ever fetter himself? It is the people who do the fettering and we'll do as much fettering as we damn well please!

    Hamilton's ties with the reformed Church of England. Calvinistic upbringing, very Nadiyb liberality apposed to the Lutheran movement of Grace and Brakah liberalism. With a so-called Jewish head teacher in England. More than likely of canaanite decent. Lending practices which break the covenant and doctrines of Ancient Hebrew fiscal Liberty and personal freedom. Canaanites known for their religious and moral perversions of every kind. Israel,being the tribes of Jacob were to utterly destroy them. for they polluted the land with their idolatry, sodomy and whores. He is a merchant, and pedlar, the balances of deceit are in his hands. Origins and practices of corrupt lending practices. The worship of Enlil, the god of breath and wind. Our apostle Paul points out this fact of his existence, Eph 2:2 " Wherein in times past you walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children disobedience. This prince Enlil is the enemy of Mithra and Apam Napat protector of the glory of sovereignty. Apam Napat, the Creator has a golden splendor brighter than the noon day sun. Which brings us to Acts 9:4 and the appearing of the Lord to Saul a jewish name, changed in Acts 13:13 to Paul a gentile name. Which also means to pause, as a pause in time.

    To fulfill the Holy, (.qodesh, a sacred place or thing, hallowed, sanctuary,) Scriptures. There are four dispensations of Paul, We the People are in the fourth. "Dispensation of the fullness of time" when all things are gathered into Christ. The fullness of the gentiles, his foot stool. Unity of the knowledge comes forth so that one may know their enemy, and the controlling powers, within the spiritual realm. Enlil is of Evil intent. the father of lies and undue pride.
