Federalist No. 22
Federalist No. 22, authored by Alexander Hamilton under the pen name Publius, is the twenty second of 85 essays. Titled "The Same Subject Continued: Other Defects of the Present Confederation", Hamilton delves into "the want of a power to regulate commerce". Additionally, he writes about some of the challenges of raising troops, and the challenge of some states carrying more of the burden than others.
Hamilton also discusses equal suffrage among the states regardless of their size, and the necessity of one supreme tribunal that would prevent multiple different states from having diverse judgments on the exact same issue.
