Thomas Jefferson, who most of us would call a creditable source, called Nullification the “rightful remedy” to the uncontrollable quest for government power.
In an oration in 1772, John Adams declared that, “Liberty, under every conceivable form of government is always in danger.” 26 years later, he personified that very danger when he signed into law the Alien and Sedition Acts, which made criticizing the president and others in the federal government a crime. Adams showed us that government is the greatest threat to liberty because it always tends toward the destruction of the individual’s natural rights.
In 1798 Thomas Jefferson along with James Madison, another creditable source, penned the Kentucky and Virginia resolutions in opposition to the Alien and Sedition Actc, which they felt violated the 1st Amendment rights of free speech and was therefore unconstitutional. This was the first time that the term “Nullification” was used in political discourse.
Jefferson went on to say that any law that was unconstitutional, was in fact, no law at all!Details

We very rarely ask ourselves what is the true purpose for a society’s
existence because we just assume it exists without any effort on our
part. It is important to ask ourselves this question because knowing
its purpose will determine the proper way in which we should think of
Most of us just assume that society exists and that we, being members
of that society, just wake up, go to work, and function within it
without ever considering what it is we are functioning in. We are
like fish who just assume the water is there but we should begin ask
the question of what is the nature of the water we swim in.
Most of us assume that the purpose of society is to provide a place
for us to meet our social needs that satisfy our emotional needs for
companionship and belonging. That is not the true purpose of society
but only one of the beneficial byproducts of it.

Meet the legalization-loving, Iraq-War-hating Californian who’s become a guru to the state sovereignty movement.
This February, around 300 conservative activists and candidates gathered at the Atlanta airport Hilton to celebrate the Tenth Amendment, the oft-overlooked constitutional provision that’s become the philosophical underpinning of opposition to everything—from bank bailouts to federal gun laws to the new health care bill. Among the speakers were the author of The South Was Right; a man who’d done time for evading taxes while running a gold and silver “bank”; and Roy Moore, the former Alabama Supreme Court justice who lost his robes after refusing to remove a giant Ten Commandments from his courthouse.
The odd man out was Michael Boldin, the founder of the Tenth Amendment CenterDetails
