On Saturday, Sept. 25, Kentucky 10th Amendment Center chapter coordinator Mike Maharrey spoke at a freedom rally on the steps of the state capitol building in Frankfort. He discussed the Kentucky Resolution of 1798, emphasizing that states pushing back against overreaching federal power is not some radical or extremist idea, but the very remedy the founders intended for unconstitutional acts.
“Where powers are assumed which have not been delegated, a nullification of the act is the rightful remedy: that every State has a natural right in cases not within the compact, (casus non fœderis) to nullify of their own authority all assumptions of power by others within their limits: that without this right, they would be under the dominion, absolute and unlimited, of whosoever might exercise this right of judgment for them.” – Thomas Jefferson
