    Doesn't that constitute an ex post facto law, or do only laws which would make someone a criminal count?

    perhaps Ron Paul figures a lotta '12 votes can be gained by giving the states a little leverage on this>


    Section Ten sets limits on states, reserving certain powers exclusively to the Congress. States are prohibited from coining money or making anything other than gold or silver coin legal tender for payment of debts

    Article One of the United States Constitution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
