If we are tucked away safe inside, we don’t tend to worry much about a major rain storm. Sure, we live in a low lying area we might have some concern about flooding, or maybe a mud slide. But in general, we sit inside safe and dry, and go on about our business.
But sometimes, major rain can cause major problems that we aren’t even aware of until it’s too late. Imagine if you have a little leak in your roof – say just the size of a nail. Water trickles in, but nothing you would ever notice. Just a steady little flow. The water puddles in your ceiling. The puddle grows. But you are blissfully unaware until…
WOOOOOOSH! The ceiling gives way under the weight of the pooling water and all of a sudden you have a deluge in your bedroom.
Trickle down can cause big problems.
Well, we have a trickle down problem when it comes to overreaching federal power.Details

Davis Merritt’s article Hidden price of nullification: forfeited rights is another example of fantasy instead of reality.
Many in the media keep repeating an inaccurate narrative about nullification. Are they truly that ignorant of history, or they have been forced fed so much that it has evolved into pseudo reality?
Merritt spends the first three paragraphs of his article recounting the dark history of the American South during the 1950s and 1960s. He pushes the emotional gas peddle harder (instead of the logical brake) when bringing the nostalgia of last weeks remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King’s classic speech. He writes:
The 50-year anniversary last week of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech also marked a half-century since the idea of state nullification of federal laws had any credence at all. But the irony of that historical juxtaposition is lost on a new generation of nullification enthusiasts in state legislatures.
Interesting that Merritt conveniently forgets one of Dr. King’s most famous quotes, “One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.” Merritt apparently has never read Thomas Jefferson who also wrote, “If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so.”Details
