Be stupid?

Why would someone claim that all "Federal" bla, bla, and bla is this or that with a straight face if they knew the facts?

References to the so called Constitution of 1787 are not references to a Federal compact among people living in Republics, or States, or Mutual Defense Associations, or Free Market Governments.

In 1787 a bunch of criminals got together and perpetrated an obvious fraud. The criminals fooled enough people into believing that the working, existing, operating, useful, defensive Federal compact among people living in Republics was improved by their generous offers of campaign promises.

It was the crime of the millennium.

A simple fraud.

So these people who appear to offer wisdom as they speak of a Federation or a Government are themselves misinformed.

If these people look into the events between 1776 and 1787 a little closer they might find something like this:

Second, federalism permits the states to operate as laboratories of democracy-to experiment with various policies and Programs. For example, if Tennessee wanted to provide a state-run health system for its citizens, the other 49 states could observe the effects of this venture on Tennessee's economy, the quality of care provided, and the overall cost of health care. If the plan proved to be efficacious other states might choose to emulate it, or adopt a plan taking into account any problems surfacing in Tennessee. If the plan proved to be a disastrous intervention, the other 49 could decide to leave the provision of medical care to the private sector. With national plans and programs, the national officials simply roll the dice for all 284 million people of the United States and hope they get things right.

Experimentation in policymaking also encourages a healthy competition among units of government and allows the people to vote with their feet should they find a law of policy detrimental to their interests. Using again the state-run health system as an example, if a citizen of Tennessee was unhappy with Tennessee's meddling with the provisions of health care, the citizen could move to a neighboring state. Reallocation to a state like North Carolina, with a similar culture and climate, would not be a dramatic shift and would be a viable option. Moreover, if enough citizens exercised this option, Tennessee would be pressured to abandon its foray into socialized medicine, or else lose much of its tax base. To escape a national health system, a citizen would have to emigrate to a foreign country, an option far less appealing and less likely to be exercised than moving to a neighboring state. Without competition from other units of government,the national government would have much less incentive than Tennessee would to modify the objectionable policy. Clearly, the absence of experimentation and competition hampers the creation of effective programs and makes the modification of failed national programs less likely.

That is a description of open source, or free market, government and it worked.

The criminals running the Bank of England and the Union of Merchants, which included the corporate people running drugs, slaves, and military weapons with their East India Company (see their flag) could not allow the number of people in America to prove to the world of people how free market government works for people as people then prosper by their Liberty.

So the criminals running the Bank of England invested in a two front war.

Front 1:
Overt War
Rob, Rape, Plunder, and Mass Murder as many of those people as possible within a limited budget.

Front 2:
Covert War
Fraud and Extortion used to incorporate a number of the people in America to work on the side of the criminals.

Those American criminals working for, or along side, the Bank of England criminals called themselves the Federalists.

They could not call themselves the Spies, or the Agents, working for the British because that would be part of the Overt War.

Covert means cover-up.

False Fronts cover-up.

Federalist Papers were the campaign promises employed to fool the survivors of the Revolutionary War (those not mass murdered) to give up their Federal Government (free market government design) for a pack of lies that cover-up Consolidation, Slavery, Piracy, Fraud, Extortion, Counterfeiting, Money Laundering, and other crimes that the criminals gave themselves the authority to perpetrate upon their victims.

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.

If these people who call themselves anarchists continue to call crime by the name of government, despite the obvious examples of existing forms of free market government that is easy to accurately measure, then they are either ignorant, or so called willfully ignorant, whereby the later is just one more lie.

No one can be willfully ignorant in fact. One must know what one decides not to know.

One might stumble upon something worth knowing eventually; one who chooses not to know something is one who knows what they will not learn.
