“No State shall… coin Money” [Article One, Section Ten, U.S. Constitution]
I am thoroughly confused by the headline that I read today.
A state senator in South Carolina and a Virginia delegate have respectively suggested that their states look into what it would take to print and coin their own currency, in the event of a failure of the Federal Reserve due to hyperinflation.
What sort of a world are we living in where people are getting elected and are allowed to stay in office when they are going directly against not only the spirit, but the letter of the law of the Constitution? Is that not part of their oaths of office?
I keep feeling like there’s more to say, but there really isn’t. This is asinine in every way, shape and form.
