All-Time Worst? Hamilton or Obama?

Perhaps no man is more responsible for the mess the world is in today than Alexander Hamilton. As George Washington's first Secretary of the Treasury, Hamilton schemed to short-circuit the influence of the several states and accumulate power in the offices of the federal government.

It was Hamilton who championed an official federal government mint and an official federal government Bank of the United States, which effectively removed the checks and balances of private mints and banks. These initial federal institutions were precursors of today's U.S. Mint and Federal Reserve System which print money and manipulate the money supply totally divorced from any foundation in reality, allowing for the misery of modern price inflation and economic crises.

The fact that Hamilton wasn't born in the American colonies doesn't bother us in the way we would be bothered if we found out President Obama wasn't born in America. Yet maybe even more than Obama, Hamilton's image stands for insane out-of-control government. The first thing liberty lovers should do if they ever gain control of Congress and the Presidency is remove Hamilton's picture from America's $10 bill.

On the other hand, an ironic twist could be that because of Obama the U.S. $10 bill will soon be worthless and Hamilton's image forgotten. Until we can start forgetting Obama also, maybe we can enjoy a fun novel which weaves a cute story around Hamilton and the patriot opposition to Hamilton: "The Whiskey Rebels" by David Liss.

To understand the evil psychology of modern "liberal progressives," read Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged"

The device which more deeply prepares freedom lovers for success, A Course in Miracles , talks about our ultimate need to free ourselves from every kind of slavery:

You have been told to bring the darkness to the light, and guilt to holiness. And you have also been told that error must be corrected at its source. Therefore, it is the tiny part of your self, the little thought that seems split off and separate, that the Holy Spirit needs. The rest is fully in God's keeping, and needs no guide. But this wild and delusional thought needs help, because, in its delusions, it thinks it is the Son of God, whole and omnipotent, sole ruler of the kingdom it set apart to tyrannize by madness into obedience and slavery.
