Issue 35 of The Beacon Spotlight delves into the 1871 U.S. Supreme Court opinion called The Legal Tender Cases, which was the first Supreme Court case to uphold paper currencies as legal tender.
Careful examination of the opinion reveals extensive treachery from the bench, as the justices only really upheld paper currency as legal tender under the exclusive legislation authority of Congress for the District Seat.
In other words, paper currency is really only a legal tender for the District of Columbia, under Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 of the U.S. Constitution, with only gold and silver coin yet the only lawful money of the United States of America.
