The power of militarization can be stopped simply by looking at the wording of the constitution. FRNs as “legal tender for all debts, public and private” can only be constitutional if they are actually supported by exclisive legislation making them legal tender for all debts.
Under the enclave clause, which resides just above the necessary and proper clause, all exclusive legislation is limited to very specific territories directly controlled by the US or bought with state permission.
That means FRNs can ONLY operate constitutionally within those areas in which exclusive legislation is granted. All others are subject to Art. 1, Sect 10, which prohibits all but gold and silver coin to the states.
Even Hamilton, in “The Federalist” points out that such money supplied is to be supplied by taxes only to “standing armies” that guard US outposts. FRNs can be nothing more than legal script for military bases, and that’s the limit to their authority. Also in Art 1 Sec 8, governing authority is limited to those parts of state militia which may be employed by the United States, fully consistent with the enclave clause.
