Storyboard Text

  • ...But the worst part was when they told me I couldn't bring back any food items!
  • If I were the president, I'd go to war with Canada!
  • War? With Canada? That's a little too much, don't you think? Your reason isn't good enough.
  • ...Plus I don't think you can force people to fight, even if you are president.
  • Of course I can! Thanks to Martin v. Mott in 1827, the president can call on state troops to fight.
  • ...How do you even know that?
  • In 1795, George Washington required state troops to help stop angry farmers who were angry about their whiskey being taxed. This one guy, Jacob Mott, refused to help, and some of his stuff got taken away from him after he didn't pay the fine, too. He took it to the Supreme Court, and Justice Story said that the president retained the power to call on the state militia.
  • Remind me why the judge made that decision.
  • ...Because he ruled it constitutional for the president to be able to do that if it concerned executing laws, suppress rebellions, and stop invasions.
  • Exactly. Glad you had a nice trip, though.
