by Nick Hankoff What if I told you the liberty revolution wasn’t real? Would you be able to prove me wrong? By acting now you can. You have the power to make a sea change in the freedom movement, but you must act now because that’s exactly what the established political plunderers are betting on…Details

For decades, D.C. has looked to its constitutional limitations with disdain – if at all.
The essential question of our day – what do we do about it? Do we ask federal politicians to limit their own power? Do we ask federal judges to limit their own power?
Greats like Thomas Jefferson warned us of this situation – that if the feds ever were the sole and exclusive arbiter of the extent of their own power – that power would always grow.
That’s why nullification – states resisting and refusing unconstitutional federal “laws” is an indispensable part of our American tradition. Since the Nullify Now! tour launched in Sept. ’10, the 10th Amendment movement has continued to grow.
Bottom line? We the people need to learn how to exercise our rights whether they the government want us to or not.Details

Former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson launched his 2012 presidential campaign last week. The commissars of approved opinion instantly condemned him for deviating from the Biden/Romney spectrum. Like Ron Paul, Johnson has had some favorable things to say about state nullification, which was used in the 1850s to fight against the fugitive-slave laws. Decentralized power, say the left-nationalists, is a “racist” idea that can be motivated only by a desire to oppress minorities. (Left unsaid, as usual, is that the government policy that most oppresses minorities today is the federal war on drugs, not anything any state is doing, but the left-narcs still won’t let us nullify it.)
Nationalism, which the establishment left joins neoconservatives (as usual) in endorsing, has been just super for minorities, the left says. Don’t believe them? Just ask the Japanese in the U.S. in the 1940s, or the Armenians in the Ottoman Empire, or the Ukrainians in the Soviet Union, or the Jews in Germany!Details
