"The nail was hammered on July 9, 1868:"
There is much in the way of evidence that reports earlier nails being hammered into the coffin of Liberty.
"But Hamilton wanted to go farther than debt assumption. He believed a funded national debt would assist in establishing public credit. By funding national debt, Hamilton envisioned the Congress setting aside a portion of tax revenues to pay each year's interest without an annual appropriation. Redemption of the principal would be left to the government's discretion. At the time Hamilton gave his Report on Public Credit, the national debt was $80 million. Though such a large figure shocked many Republicans who saw debt as a menace to be avoided, Hamilton perceived debt's benefits. "In countries in which the national debt is properly funded, and the object of established confidence," explained Hamilton, "it assumes most of the purposes of money." Federal stock would be issued in exchange for state and national debt certificates, with interest on the stock running about 4.5 percent. To Republicans the debt proposals were heresy. The farmers and planters of the South, who were predominantly Republican, owed enormous sums to British creditors and thus had firsthand knowledge of the misery wrought by debt. Debt, as Hamilton himself noted, must be paid or credit is ruined. High levels of taxation, Republicans prognosticated, would be necessary just to pay the interest on the perpetual debt. Believing that this tax burden would fall on the yeoman farmers and eventually rise to European levels, Republicans opposed Hamilton's debt program.
"To help pay the interest on the debt, Hamilton convinced the Congress to pass an excise on whiskey. In Federalist N. 12, Hamilton noted that because "[t]he genius of the people will ill brook the inquisitive and peremptory spirit of excise law," such taxes would be little used by the national government. In power, the Secretary of the Treasury soon changed his mind and the tax on the production of whiskey rankled Americans living on the frontier. Cash was scarce in the West and the Frontiersmen used whiskey as an item of barter."
Criminal power is accurately measurable as deception, threats of violence, and aggressive violence upon the innocent.
When defenders against crime find ways to defend themselves, with such things as Free Market Government, voluntary defensive associations, exemplified with the 13 Constitutionally Limited Republics Voluntarily Joined into a Democratic Federated Republic Under The Articles of Confederation, complete with a working Trial by Jury system based upon sortition, the criminal elements figure out how to counterfeit such things and claim that their counterfeit versions are the real deal.
Claiming that Debt is Credit is a classic example as was pointed out well in the forum post linked here:
Bait and switch is an old routine.
Mass marketing, mind control, false advertisements, conditioned response, behavioral modification, brain washing, manufactured consent, or whatever you want to call the process, was used by Hamilton and the Nationalists/Monarchists/Despots/Money Changers/Central Bankers/Frauds/Extortionists/Slave Traders/Legal Criminals, whatever accurate label you want to call them, to seize control of false government (crime made legal) and the prize they always seek is the Legal Money Monopoly Power which is then used to establish the Business Psycho or Business Cycle, where WAR is financed by this group, financing all sides, and reaping the rewards of that highest amplitude wave length of that same Business Psycho.
Hamilton and the false Federalists sold Nationalism with National Debt and National Interest on the lie that it was Federalism.
The actual founding fathers, not the false ones, not the counterfeit ones who called themselves (falsely) Federalists, where, the actual founding fathers were, labelled, again falsely, Anti-Federalists.
Here are some of the words of warning offered to the people, voluntarily, honestly, and without the full measure of deception employed by the false Federalists:
"Mr. Chairman—Whether the Constitution be good or bad, the present clause clearly discovers, that it is a National Government, and no longer a confederation. I mean that clause which gives the first hint of the General Government laying direct taxes. The assumption of this power of laying direct taxes, does of itself, entirely change the confederation of the States into one consolidated Government. This power being at discretion, unconfined, and without any kind of controul, must carry every thing before it. The very idea of converting what was formerly confederation, to a consolidated Government, is totally subversive of every principle which has hitherto governed us. This power is calculated to annihilate totally the State Governments. Will the people of this great community submit to be individually taxed by two different and distinct powers? Will they suffer themselves to be doubly harrassed? These two concurrent powers cannot exist long together; the one will destroy the other: The General Government being paramount to, and in every respect more powerful than, the State governments, the latter must give way to the former."
The nail in the coffin of Liberty was hammered into place in the form of a false Constitutional Republic, which is a false corporation, which is founded upon lies, threats, and aggressive violence upon the innocent.
What do you think this is:
To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;
To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;
No sooner than the false Federalists took over did they monopolize their power and crush their competition.
Washington was in on it, and so was John Adams, with the so called Whiskey Rebellion and the Alien and Sedition Acts.
So obvious was the deception to Madison, who had been duped, that Madison turned his coat back to Blue (from a Red Coat) and joined Jefferson in the failed attempt to regain a Voluntary Government through the POWER of secession, or nullification.
We still have, albeit watered down, Jury Nullification, which is currently under heavy attack in Mass Media, but has shown to be of some use for Liberty in fraudulent Tax cases (IRS is a fraud) and a test may become realized with the Adam Kokesh kidnapping case.
