Okay, here is my theory: Alexander Hamilton was a double agent for the British
Here's my speculative facts
-Alexander Hamilton was heavily in favor of a central bank modeled after GB; Thomas Jefferson was vehemently opposed
-Alexander Hamilton was one of the authors of the federalist papers, which called for a strong Union rather than power spread out through the states.
This combined with a central bank would pave the way for a U.S. empire
-George Washington reluctantly agreed to have a central bank which kept its charter for 20 years.
Okay so far, now here is where it gets a little complicated. From my perspective, it seems like George Washington is too much of a good person to be a
double agent, but possibly not smart enough to see through Hamilton's plans. After all, Hamilton criticizes Jefferson's view of Americans as SIMPLE
FARMERS who are incapable of guiding their own destiny. But George Washington was a simple farmer! Was he simply outwitted?
Here is where it links with another conspiracy, the conspiracy that George Washington, after the war, did not return to have debates with the other
founding fathers but rather stayed at his farm and was impersonated by Adam Weishaupt! This would explain why George Washington (really Weishaupt)
would go along with Hamilton.
Even if you take out the Weishaupt link, it still is hard to fathom how George Washington went along with the central bank idea. The party line was
they needed a central bank to pay off the war debt, but some of that debt was to France, who were allies with them. Hamilton also suggested having
protectionism on American goods so they could rebuilt their economy through trade. Protectionism only benefits the corporations and not the citizens.
The newly found American states were being persuaded to buy American instead of cheaper foreign goods. This was probably pretty easy to pull off since
it was shortly after a revolutionary war. But the point is, protectionism is exploitation.
I can just imagine what the Keynesian economists would say: "The first central bank saved the economy, and only ended because their charter ran out.
Shame on Jefferson and the others for not giving the first central bank perpetual power.
But my personal favorite of this whole theory is Hamilton's argument of why a central bank was Constitutional: because congress was given the power
to do anything NECESSARY to fix economic problems. Way to exploit a constitutional loophole Hamilton. Forget everything the Americans fought for, we
might as well replace one Empire with Another.
But of course, if Hamilton was a British spy, it was really just the same ol' Empire but with a new face.
