Federalist- Alexander Hamilton

The Consititution does not express every forbidden act of the people. We are to use the idea of implied powers - power that is given to us through the Constitution - to build-up America. Federalists admire Britain for its stability and did not trust France because of violent changes in the French Revolution. Federalists are Capitalists who believe in a strong federal goverment . Federalists are nationalists who support big goverment that affects everyone. Hamilton is considered the father of capitalism. Federalists believed that only white, educated men who owned property and had the peoples's rights in mind could participate in the government. Hamilton and others thought uneducated folk be swayed to0 easily by agitators and couldn't be trusted as leaders in government.Federalists did not agree that each state should have it's own independent goverment. They supported a strong central government. Federalists wanted a loose interpretation of the constitution. They believed in a national banking system and wanted good trade relations to with other nations.

Lasting Impact

During his life, Alexander Hamiton served as part of the Cabinet for the President of the United States. He created the United State's First National Bank. Alexander also created a national tax system. Without Hamilton financial skills the United Staes would have gone into bankruptcy. We still use his systems today. So in honor of his contribution, he is pictured on our 10 dollar bills.
