Are Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and Joe Biden committing Treason?

One of the most important parts of the War for Independence was not George Washington
beating the British bayonets on the field of battle, it was in stopping the British printers from
devaluing the Continental dollar with counterfeit currency. Most know about the heroic efforts
by Washington and the army to stand up against the Redcoats. However, very few know of the
secret battle that was waged to stop the devaluing of the dollar.

The British plan was simple – destroy the United States by eroding the buying power of a dollar.
The British would print these counterfeit dollars in New York and then send loyalist throughout
the country to buy valuable goods with fake money. By flooding the market with fake money,
the value of the dollar would plummet and the confidence in the Continental Congresses ability
to pay its bills would diminish. If the dollar was worthless, no one would serve in the Army thus
making it easy for the British Redcoats to subdue this country.

The crime of devaluing the dollar was so serious, that George Washington ordered those who
were circulating counterfeit dollars to be hung.

Pelosi, Schumer, and Biden are spending money today that the United States does not have.
The consequence is that the nation is now spending one out of every seven tax dollars on
interest payments.

The United States’ debt has now crossed 29 trillion. When you look at both the funded and
unfunded liabilities of the United States, the current liability per person is $484,957.
Yes, you read that right, because Congress refuses to balance its budget, your personal liability
of the national debt is close to half a million dollars. If the United States did not spend another
dollar until we paid off this debt, it would take us seven years until we are debt free.
The United States Constitution defines Treason as “giving [our enemies] Aid and Comfort.” As
Pelosi, Schumer, and Biden drive up the national debt, the amount of money we spend on
interest goes up and the less money that future generations will have to spend on protecting
this country from our enemies. Remember that raising and supporting armies is one of the few
enumerated duties of Congress.

Today’s reckless spending means that it will be more difficult for tomorrow’s Congress to raise
and support armies to protect us from our enemies. The long-term effect of a devalued dollar
caused Washington to execute those involved because they clearly were enemies of the state
trying to win the war through fiscal policy.

I would argue that when year after year, Congress fails to balance its budget, it is providing aid
and comfort to our enemies. Forty-nine states already have provisions requiring that they
balance their budgets. Since Pelosi, Schumer, and Biden are refusing to put the long-term safety

of this nation as a priority, it is critical that after the 2022 Red Wave election, that the 118th
Congress immediately pass a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution.

When I am elected to the United States Senate, I will not only vote for but I will also lobby the
leadership in the House and the Senate for an immediate vote for a Balanced Budget
Amendment.
