This blog was established by the founders and staff of Hamilton House Publications, LLC (“HHP”) – based in Hamilton, N.Y. We are a relatively new publishing company with a philosophy of promoting books, articles, websites, and blogs and blog posts that deal with contemporary (and future) issues and concerns in the context of the principles, values, and directions that the Founders of these United States— and leaders since then— have articulated “to ourselves and our Posterity.” And, as this nation as grown and prospered, we have become a model and leader for much of the rest of the planet. That leadership both internally and internationally, is facing crises.
The divisiveness and paralysis that have arisen in our national governing system and that is reflected in our current national political campaigns lead to a call for centering, for reflection on our founding and basic principles. These, as they have been reflected in the rhetoric and leadership of people like Jefferson, Madison, Hamilton, Lincoln, and many of the scholars, journalists, think tanks, and organizations that have kept our Republic examining— and to a degree fulfilling— the Promise that was made to America and which we want to hold up and re-invigorate.
