Dude, are you serious? It seems we have our own version of Michele Bachmann, only at the state level in Virginia Delegate Bob Marshall (if you don’t know who Michele Bachmann is, well, she’s the interesting Congressional representative from Minnesota’s 6th district… you can see her Youtube video below):
Bob Marshall has the desire for the State of Virginia to coin it’s own money. Cletus has more on that here. Bob, dude, are you serious? Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution gives that sole authority to the Federal Government.
Governor Bob McDonnell agrees and will not back Marshall’s currency bill. I’m sure that the Governor thought the currency bill would make it more difficult to “trade with other states.” SMH, LOL!!!
