    From Ted Cruz’s appearance on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace Aug. 4 (full interview | just the section referred to): his mnemonic device for memorizing Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution:


    • Taxes
    • Credit
    • Commerce
    • Naturalization
    • Coinage
    • Counterfeiting
    • Post offices
    • Copyright
    • Courts
    • Piracy
    • Army
    • War
    • Navy
    • Militia
    • Money for militia
    • WAshington, D.C
    • Rules, and
    • Necessary and proper.

    Thanks to the Dallas Morning News for coming close on the transcription.

    For reference, the Constitution.

  2. Almost right! But your way has “Rules” out of order — it comes right after “Navy.”

    I think the mnemonic is actually:




    Post offices


    Money for Militia

    WAshington, D.C, and
    Necessary and proper.
