Wrong. The federal

Wrong. The federal government was never given the power to make legal tender. Legal tender does not mean "coin money". It does not mean "emit credit". It means "require payment" as in legal judgement and taxes or anywhere else someone might be required to take a debt. Those are three separate things. No one but an idiot would think so after all the discussions on here, even if they didn't know at one time.

States set it. The federal government doesn't.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
