    It's also not an army. The difference is that one of these two arguments is intentionally ridiculous to prove a point, while the other is sincere. Both arise from the concept that the Constitution means whatever we want it to mean, and that concepts should just be shoehorned in as we decide that some new, vast government power should be instated.

    In this situation, gold isn't more scarce; gold in government vaults is scarce. Because they are convenient. An inconvenient currency is less liquid and therefore less useful. If that were an incentive, people would already be doing it. By and large, they are not.

    And before you make a snide remark about flintlocks and quill pens, the Framer's original intent was that the right to bear arms extended to the equal armament common to military use, and the original intent of freedom of speech extended to all manner of expression. Whereas the original intent of the Army was a land based combat force, and the Navy a sea based combat force. Original intent is a thing. maybe you should look it up.

    The Constituion clearly authorizes two Departments. Army, and Navy. This covers land and sea. If they want a force for the Air, they need to amend the Constitution. If they want a force for Space, they need to amend the Constitution. Original Intent. The Framers did not originally intend aircraft and spaceships.

    You don't get to wish whatever you want into the Constitution. The Constitution authorized two branches. An Army branch and a Navy branch. Any military force must either reside under one of the two Constitutionally authorized branches, or a Constitutional Amendment must be made to amend the Constitution to authorize a third branch. This isn't rocket science, and I know you are smarter than this. Is this deliberate, or is this just an example of Trumgasming?

    Why not just put the space force under the postal system? All space ships send and receive messages, which is your standard for making them post offices. That seems like the easiest constitutional justification.

    So yeah, you are claiming to understand the Constitution better than the guy who wrote it. James Madison wrote in The Virginia Report, 1800, by the Virginia House of Delegates, that the Sedition Act was unconstitutional.

    How is the value of the dollar rising? Aren't you proposing a gold standard here? The dollar has not become worth more or less gold. There is still exactly the same proportion of gold to dollars; there's just less of each. Why would domestic production rise? How would people buy the domestic production? Dollars? You just said that they became scarcer and worth more. That means that domestic purchases and imports have exactly the same problem. But why would they do that? They could just use the non-scarce foreign currency instead.

    LMAO! James Madison wrote the Constitution, but Swordsmyth here understands it better than the guy who...you know...actually wrote it... John Adams signed the Act into law to form the Marines in 1798. James Madison served 1809-1817 and continued to utilize the Marines in 1811. Clearly the guy who wrote the Constitution thought they were Constitutional.... Because they were organized under the Constitutional Department of the Navy. smdh.

    No, the Army and Navy provisions are organizational. The Army Air Corps was organized under the Department of the Army. The same people who wrote the Constitution also created the Marine Corps and put them under the Department of the Navy. Are you claiming that the same people who wrote the Constitution did not know how to understand the words that they, themselves wrote?

    The Marine Corps was raised up by an Act of the Continental Congress on 10 November 1775, and then again in the Constitutional era on 27 March 1794. The Marines were used extensively as an “Army Afloat” for amphibious raids and land marches like the assault on Derna right from the start. Their role did not actually depend on the Navy from the origins of the organization. If what you were claiming was correct, then Congress would have formed the Marines as a “Water Army” branch instead of putting them under the Department of the Navy in order to retain full Constitutionality. The proper method of Constitutional interpretation is Original Intent. The same people who wrote the Constitution had already dealt with the formation of another kind of military branch, and we can see that original intent in that act. Only two military departments are authorized in the Constitution. If you want more than two, amend it. I happen to agree that that we need an Air Force. Until we amend the Constitution, it needs to remain under the Department of the Army.

    If there's not a problem and it can't happen, why did you just talk about desperate, poor people working for less and buying domestically? Alright, so here's the problem that zippy mentioned: people want to import stuff. They buy that stuff, not with gold but with dollars. The foreigners decide that they'd rather have gold than dollars, and use the trade window to do exactly that. Result: there is no gold and no dollars.

    Why not have 80 Departments of the Army? You are doing the the exact same bizarre interpretation dance that gave us the FDA, Department of Education, the Drug War, Wickard v Filburn and more. That’s not the way the Constitution is supposed to work. You can’t just retcon whatever you want into the Constitution. That’s how the Swamp operates.

    That sounds like justification for anything you can dream of. After all, the drug war is just a function of interstate commerce, right? Sorry, words have meaning. You don’t get to run around changing the meaning of words in order to shoe-horn whatever the hell you want I to the Constitution. That’s how the left is trying to neuter the Second Amendment. “Regulated” and all that. Article 1 Section 8 authorizes ONE Army and ONE Navy, so even if we took your absurdity as an “Air Army” it still doesn’t work. The provision is organizational, not connotative. When it was the Army Air Corps it was under the Department of the Army and therefore Constitutional. In order to become it’s own organizational branch it requires a Constitutional Amendment. This should be blatant on it’s face. Don’t get carried away by wishful thinking.

    Just because the government does it, doesn’t automagically make it Constitutional. In order to have a US Air Force that is not the Army Air Corps, requires a Constitutional Amendment. If you seriously got an Air Force out of Article 1 Section 8, then I don’t think I’ve got anything to help you.

    Hey, just FWIW, if you ever get into prose poetry/epic poetry (ala Pushkin), you would probably enjoy the books and software by Randy Ingermason. His stuff is geared toward novelists, but it's useful for complicated poetry as well, IMO. ~hugs~ Try self-publishing your stuff on Amazon, etc, btw. It's more lucrative than Big Publishing nowadays, IMO. "Writing Fiction For Dummies" is pretty much a must-have too. Not only does it cover the craft, it gets into the business of selling a book, publishing, etc. (again, geared toward novelists, but good for everyone) ttyl. ~hugs~
