“What an obstruction could not this Bank of the United States, with all its branch banks, be in time of war? It might dictate
to us the peace we should accept, or withdraw its aids. Ought we then to give further growth to an institution so powerful,
so hostile?...Now, while we are strong, it is the greatest debt we owe to the safety of our Constitution, to bring its powerful
enemy to a perfect subordination under its authorities.” - THOMAS JEFFERSON

“It is a litigated question, whether the circulation of paper, rather than of specie, is a good or an evil. In the
opinion of England and of English writers it is a good; in that of other nations it is an evil; and excepting
England and her copyist, the United States, there is not a nation existing, I believe, which tolerates a paper
circulation. The experiment is going on, however, desperately in England, pretty boldly with us, and at the end
of the chapter, we shall see which opinion experience approves: for I believe it to be one of those cases where
mercantile clamor will bear down reason, until it is corrected by ruin.” – THOMAS JEFFERSON

“I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground: That all powers not delegated to the United
States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States or to the people. To take a
single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a
boundless field of power no longer susceptible of any definition. The incorporators of a bank, and the powers
assumed by this bill, have not, in my opinion, been delegated to the United States, by the Constitution. They are
not among the powers specially enumerated.” - Thomas Jefferson, 1813.
14 The Antelope Valley Political Observer
This Month in
American History
POLITICAL PARTIES
09 MAY 1860: Former members of the
American and Whig Parties meet in Bal-
timore to form the Constitutional Union
Party.
18 MAY 1876: The Greenback Party holds
its national convention in Indiana.
14 MAY 1884: The Anti-Monopoly Par-
ty is the first of several reform parties to
organize and convene on a national basis
this election year. The party is responding
to the apparent need for legislation at the
federal level to regulate gigantic trusts,
combines and monopolies which are cre-
ating a powerful network of a few inter-
locking companies working to forestall
competition, legislation or regulation.
28 MAY 1884: The Greenback Party meets
in Indiana, and nominates old Republican
Reconstructionist and Union General Ben-
jamin Butler for president. The party will
later merge with the Anti-Monopoly Party
to become the Populist Party.
15 MAY 1888: The national convention
of the Equal Rights Party meets in Iowa.
The Midwest and West are sympathetic to
Women’s Rights partly because the man-
ner of living in the open country breaks
down artificial behavior patterns.
16 MAY 1888: The Union Labor Party
convenes in Ohio. This is one of several
parties now forming to support the cause
of the new militant American laborers.
17 MAY 1888: The United Labor Party
holds its national convention in Ohio.
19 MAY 1891: Growing out of enthusi-
astic meeting in Kansas the year before,
the vibrant, eclectic, reform-minded Pop-
ulist Party is formed at the national lev-
el at a convention held in Ohio. Its main
strength lies in united support from labor
and farmers. Government ownership of
railroads along with free coinage of Silver
are among their most important demands.
They back a graduated income tax; an
eight-hour workday; popular election of
senators and the secret ballot. In the 1892
presidential election with General Weav-
er as their candidate, the Populist Party
polled over 1.2 million votes.
SLAVERY
18 MAY 1652: The Rhode Island Colony
enacts the first American law declaring
slavery illegal.
WAR ON DRUGS
26 MAY 1922: The creation of the Federal
Narcotics Control Board is signed into law
by President Harding.

“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the Federal Government, are few and defined. Those which
are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on
external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will,
for the most part, be connected. The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in
the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, im-
provement, and prosperity of the State.” - James Madison, Federalist No. 45.

“Of all enemies to public Liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ
of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are

“Let us examine these causes and proofs of the want of our increase of medium [money], one by one. 1. The additional in-
dustry created to supply a variety of articles for troops, ammunition. &c. Now. I had always supposed that war produced a
diminution of industry, by the number of hands it withdraws from industrious pursuits for employment in arms, &c, which
are totally unproductive. And if it calls for new industry in the articles of ammunition and other military supplies, the hands
are borrowed from other branches on which the demand is slackened by the war; so that it is but a shifting of these hands
from one pursuit to another.” - THOMAS JEFFERSON, 1813

deluge of bank paper, as we were formerly by the old Continental paper. It is cruel that such revolutions in private fortunes
should be at the mercy of avaricious adventurers, who, instead of employing their capital, if any they have, in manufac-
