"'Invisible Government' is a phrase for which it would be difficult to formulate a dictionary definition without sacrifice of accuracy to brevity. It may perhaps be best described as the political and economic control of the community -- or the political control for selfish, if not sinister, economic purposes -- by individual men, or groups or organizations, who are careful to evade the responsibility which should always accompany power. They operate behind a mask or puppets in politics and business, and these must take the blame in courts of law, and before the bar of public opinion, for any errors in the technique of knavery."

Author John McConaughy impiously rips the masks off our elitist 'Funding Fathers' and their 'invisible government' for special privilege.

In what is one of the finest and most powerful histories of the early years of the American state, McConaughy demonstates that the adoption of the Constitution amounted to a coup d'etat by these forces of 'invisible government'.

Although the names and faces have changed over time, this is the same predatory plutocracy behind the Federal Reserve's monetary meltdown and the Wall Street bankster bailouts of today.

McConaughy discusses how Federalists George Washington, Robert Morris, Alexander Hamilton, and John Marshall believed in nationalism -- a strong, consolidated national government, weak states, an elastic interpretation of the Constitution, a central bank with special privileges creating an elite 'paper aristocracy,' and 'internal improvements' (corporate welfare at the national level).

By contrast, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, John Taylor of Caroline County, Virgina, John Randolph of Roanoke, Virginia, etc. composed the Republicans.
