Quote of the Week - Alexander Hamilton



“If we continue united, we may counteract a policy so unfriendly to our prosperity in a variety of ways. By prohibitory regulations, extending, at the same time, throughout the States, we may oblige foreign countries to bid against each other, for the privileges of our markets.” -- Alexander Hamilton (Federalist Paper #11)
