Nullification: “If you love liberty you can’t stand the federal government”

In an interview with then-Mises Institute vice-president Jeffrey Tucker, Tom Woods talks about his book Nullification and the concepts behind the political doctrine in connection with the Tenth Amendment. They also go through the history of nullification, starting with the Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions, written by James Madison and Thomas Jefferson respectively, in response to the Alien and Sedition Act.

Name Calling and “Tenther Nullification Nonsense” in Arizona

AzBlueMeanie claims in the article Neoconfederate insurrectionists in Arizona Legislature revive discredited ‘nullification’ theory that:

All elected officials in Arizona take the following oath of office:

“I do solemnly swear that I will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution and laws of the State of Arizona, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same and defend them against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge the duties of the office of __________ according to the best of my ability, so help me God.”

And yet the Arizona legislature is populated by Neoconfederate insurrectionists who have violated their oath of office and are actively engaged in acts of domestic insurrection against the United States government.

Let’s get this straight now… AzBluemeanie believes that a state elected official who stands up against what he or she perceives to be a clear violation of the U.S. Constitution has “violated their oath of office and are actively engaged in acts of domestic insurrection against the United States government”. That is a pretty bold statement to make with no evidence to back it up. Nice job!

Let us bring some credentials into the discussion.
