PHOENIX, Ariz. (May 2, 2013) – Governor Jan Brewer, or as she’s commonly being referred to as, “Federal Deputy Brewer,” vetoed Arizona’s bill that would allow, but not mandate, businesses and the state government to accept payments in gold or silver. Currently all debts and taxes in Arizona and the rest of the United States are either paid with Federal Reserve Notes (dollars) which were authorized as legal tender by Congress, or with coins issued by the U.S. Treasury — very few of which have gold or silver in them.
What Federal Deputy Brewer fails to acknowledge is that, The United States Constitution states in Article I, Section 10, “No State shall… make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts.” The Arizona Constitutional Tender Bill would’ve been a big step towards that constitutional requirement, which has been ignored for a long time in every state of the country. Disregarding the constitution is not a big surprise coming from the ALL show and no action, finger shaking Brewer!
Jan Brewer has a track record for not following the constitution! She is in favor of indefinite detention of American citizens, which she made clear last year by vetoing SB1182. She worked behind the scenes to block Arizona’s gun control nullification bill SB1112, while her conservative colleagues in Kansas, for an example, signed it into law. She’s currently in the middle of trying to get Arizona to participate in Obamacare’s medicaid expansion, which violates Article 27, Section 2 of the Arizona constitution. And now, by vetoing SB1439, our tyrannical state overlord is proving that not only is she a fan of the federal reserve, but her concern for our U.S. constitution and her own states’ economy is superseded by the directives given to her from her federal cronies up in D.C.
