Amendment 14 Section 4
The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for
services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned.
The validity of the public debt of the United States shall not be questioned.
1. Well grounded; just: a valid objection.
2. Producing the desired results; efficacious: valid methods.
3. Having legal force; effective or binding: a valid title.
a. Containing premises from which the conclusion may logically be derived: a valid argument.
b. Correctly inferred or deduced from a premise: a valid conclusion.
5. Archaic Of sound health; robust.
Section 4 of the 14th amendment says including
debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection and
rebellion. So, it is not
saying that the debt will not be questioned only
when it is the result of putting down rebellions, BUT, the
validity of the debt will not be questioned including
those instances that it is incurred to put down rebellions.
If someone did not have nefarious aims, and was being completely honest, why would they say that the validity of the public debt cannot be questioned?
Could it be, perhaps, because the debt is not valid?
The only reason you would tell someone they are not allowed to question anything
is because you have something to hide. If the debt was
valid, then questioning said validity would do no harm.
And what would someone have to gain from putting the Union into debt?
