However, since the Supreme Court's Decision to legally establish "The Federal Tyranny" through Precedent - in wake of the Civil War - Nullification has been a legal concept often thought of as being long dead. However, after passage of their landmark legislation regarding, "Un-Constitutional National Health-Care," several States have once again asserted this Constitutionally Guaranteed Right Of The States!
So far, three States have begun the necessary legal process - in order to legally nullify and lawfully obstruct Obama-Care... only one day after its significant enactment! With more than 70 percent of the American population against it, however, we can expect many more to be added to the list. As always, we shall attempt to keep you abreast of this developing situation....
According to Historian Thomas E. Woods:
- “The main point that nullification aims to address is that a government allowed to determine the scope of its own powers cannot remain limited for long. This is a lesson we should have learned by now. Moreover, since piecemeal solutions to reducing federal power have accomplished nothing, we can hardly afford to dismiss out of hand the idea of nullification, a remedy that is at once creative and intelligent, and recommended by some of the greatest political thinkers in American history.”
An excellent and highly accurate article was recently published in The Greenville News regarding Nullification, and I feel that many of us should read it! Meanwhile, here's what The Tenth Amendment Center has to say upon this all-important subject....
In Thomas Jefferson's Words:
- “Whensoever the general government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force” - From the Kentucky Resolutions of 1798.
