"In this distribution of powers the wisdom of our constitution is manifested. It is the province and duty of the Executive to preserve to the Nation the blessings of peace. The Legislature alone can interrupt those blessings, by placing the Nation in a state of War."
Alexander Hamilton
(1757-1804) American statesman, Secretary of the Treasury
Pacificus #1, June 29, 1793.

Editor, thanks, great quote. WOW, so applicable to our day. In today's Amerika, no such distribution existse.

    Ironic, that such a quote should come from one of the original American traitors. Hamilton was "the" original proponent of central banking and a Rothchild pawn. Read "Hamilton's Curse".

    It was well understood in the early days of the nation that the President could not declare war and for good reason. Such a serious action required approval from the People via their Congress. It seems that not only have Americans forgotten such a provision, we have given the President carte blanche in almost all respects. Neither is the President supposed to introduce legislation, yet, Obama-care is just that. The consciousness of Americans is being actively conditioned to treat the Executive branch as if it were the Crown, it doesn't matter which party. Power corrupts, and we have seen the evidence first hand.

    It is unfortunate that Hamilton was as instrumental as he was in the creation of the Constitution as he obviously allowed for a central bank to be legally formed. Washington trusted him impeccably. Few understand the workings of banks and their ability to 'loan' something that does not exist. Our Constitution should be amended to prevent the government from EVER allowing our currency to be replaced by interest-bearing debt. This is the cause of all the economic booms and busts around the world, and few ever bring this information to light. All we ever hear is that the IMF/World Bank will come to the aid of any failing economy -- laughable at best as the solution is merely more unpayable debt to the banksters who merely turn your own promise to pay into currency that others must accept in lieu of cash (i.e. hard currency).

    yeah Hamilton was a mole - and not for King George, but for the PRIVATE Bank of England/ City of London tribe. If you read Miracle on Main Street author, Tupper Saussy's RULERS OF EVIL - USEFUL KNOWLEDGE ABOUT GOVERNING BODIES - like me, I think you'll suspect Washington as well, and Hamilton's main man - Robert Morris. See the Apotheosis of Washington - literally the Christ like ascent of Washington into heaven - in the company of Roman gods and goddesses - that "graces" the dome of the US Capitol rotunda. Robert Morris as head of the very first "FED" - the infamously named Bank of North America - the first of *FOUR* PRIVATELY owned central banks - is depicted receiving a bag of gold from a winged foot and helmet pagan god Mercury. The gold he borrowed on the credit of the People in order to complete the destruction of the "worthless" Continentals - the Continental Currency (which WAS backed by gold and silver, contrary to Austrian "history") with which we (US) kicked the ass of the world's greatest super power of the time. True sovereign money - issued debt free and free of usury. (The Continental Congress only ever printed the 250 million they authorized, and even with British general Howe and the New York City British loyalists openly COUNTERFEITING four to five times that amount, they could not destroy the Continentals!) If one spends 1/2 hour studying the MONEY POWER differences between the Articles of Confederation and the CONstitution - I think you'll agree that Hamilton's Curse in fact IS the CONstitution! Probably just a coincidence that no less authority than the Jewish Virtual Library pegs Ten Buck Hamilton as a Jew bastard: http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/biography/Hamilton.html Hamilton completely "newspeaked" the terms federal and federalist - co-opted them to mean the exact opposite and in doing so forced the TRUE federalists (small, very limited central government) to declare themselves "anti-federalists." In addition to stealing the MONEY POWER from the People and the States - so he could give it to Rothschilds - Hamilton wanted an emperor for life for chief executive - not a President. So this quote from him is prime example of his perfidy. Quotes from liars and traitors deserve NO STARS. I'd love to know the real reason why Jefferson's SITTING vice president, Aaron Burr, gut shot Hamilton.
