Description
This fiction novel introduces the manner of deception used to bypass the U.S. Constitution's express limitations on the scope of government. Since this is a rather large topic, this novel limits its scope to deal with money, showing how legal tender paper currencies were cleverly instituted in 1862 and gold was 'confiscated' in 1933. For a thorough, non-fiction look at the same topic, please see Monetary Laws, Volumes I & II; by the same author.

Summary
The century-old Evanston farmhouse was demolished to make way for development. Looking to save a few foundation bricks as keepsakes, Mark Evanston stumbled upon his great-grandfather’s long-lost gold cache, along with his great-grandfather’s monetary research. After word spread about the gold discovery, U.S. Marshals soon arrived with a warrant to seize it, saying the great-grandfather failed to turn in his gold as commanded in 1933 by President Roosevelt. Mark began studying his great-grandfather’s legal writings to compliment his own research to aid their defense. When the U.S. Treasurer admitted the validity of Mark’s research during a deposition, prosecutors dropped the lawsuit & returned the family’s gold. After announcement that the U.S. Treasurer was resigning for personal reasons, an investigative reporter began looking into the story. Sinister parties took drastic action to prevent publication of Mark’s research, kidnapping him and blowing up his home. With Mark’s abduction, the former treasurer who had spoke only intermittently with the reporter opened up and told her story. With his rescue, the reporter wrote a prize-winning story with a happy ending, bringing nationwide attention to Mark’s research. One family’s loss of personal history helped America regain hers, clearing the path for the United States of America to again become the bright Beacon of Liberty in a world all too full of darkness and despair. Read Bald Justice to discover how America’s fundamental principles have been turned upside-down for 150 years.

Excerpt
Mark’s greatest insights came from his great-grandfather’s monetary papers which relayed one conversation with Floyd Johnson. Floyd had brought up that the federal government seemed to be growing immensely powerful, not by amendment as was the express means provided by Article V of the Constitution for changing federal power, but merely somehow. Mark Adamson noted that the Tenth Amendment very clearly established the ‘rule’ of American government, that with ratification of the Constitution, government power became divided into federal and State jurisdictions. Mark Adamson likened this 10th Amendment principle to a pie, with the small sliver of federal authority delegated to the federal government as outlined by the Constitution, with the States retaining the remainder of the government power pie as reserved powers. Floyd stated he agreed only in principle. He stated that in practice the federal government now all but consumed the mostly insignificant State government authorities, with States being now forced to tow the federal line. Floyd therefore argued for a pie in which the small sliver went to the State governments, where the bulk of the pie was now federal. Mark Adamson conceded that the government model in principle did not seem to correspond with the government model in practice, and therefore argued that they were both missing some critical interim step which somehow allowed the transition. Mark understood that although the United States began and operated under the ‘small slice of federal authority’ type of government model for the first 70-odd years until 1862, that something then happened which seemed to allow that sliver of authority to expand exponentially. This seemed to occur even though no new amendment had been ratified since 1804. The State governments, as acknowledged in Article VII of the Constitution, voluntarily withdrew some of their own sovereign government powers and delegated those powers enumerated within the Constitution over to their new united government they created. Only the States could therefore change the powers of the federal government. Since the beginning of the Civil War era, however, the very executive and judicial officers and legislative members who were authorized to exercise delegated powers seemed to control their own destinies. Not surprisingly, those powers were constantly expanding. It was this apparent contradiction which so troubled Mark. He knew very well that the Constitution only allowed the States to ratify amendments. Yet government officials now seemed to be arbitrarily deciding for themselves what powers they would exercise. Knowing such contradictions to be logically and legally inconsistent, Mark worked tirelessly to understand this dilemma. Mark knew he must learn the mechanism which allowed the government to seemingly transform itself from one government model to another at whim, that this was the key to understanding the government’s indifference to its own constitutional limitations. Mark’s quest therefore became the search for missing Government Model ‘B,’ that transition step between government acting within constitutional principles and government as practiced today, acting within its own virtually-unlimited discretion.
