80%.....damn that was bad.....but i get to stay
Too easy, 100%.
90 percent. Never can remember if Maine was an original State.
The enumerated power is to coin money --thereby doing the dual duty of declaring specie as lawful money-- not to print up worthless fiat currency out of thin air.
Oh yeah...Aced the test.
I'm embarrassed to say that I thought the number of amendments to the Constitution was a prime number.
Ah, but what's four constitutional amendments between citizens, eh?
Happy Birthday America.
I see your point but Elected Gubamint types will say that there is nothing in the Constitution that says you can't destroy the currency!
Just remember that Maine it's too cold to live in Maine.
Therefore no self respecting enlightened 18th century person would live there.....
....hence since it was empty, it wasn't part of the original 13.
At least thats the way I am able to get to the answer through association.
But does it say what the coins are to be made of?
Of course, the current US coinage is as fiat as the paper, so your point, while technically correct, really doesn't have score many points.
You want to elimiate the FED, that I understand.
And I'll even assume that we have essantially the same complaints about the Fed, but I'm not a hard currency kinda guy like you apparently are.
FWIW corript kings and governments have been shaving coins (debasing them) for thousands of years.
For exactly the same reason that our government has been issuing fiat dollars, too, I'll note.
Ther type of money isn't the problem, amigo.
The type of leaders we elect is the real problem.
The debasement of our money is merely a symptom of the disease.
I got 100%. And since I am happy with the Tea Party I guess I am an educated terrorist.
