The following is from Tom Woods fabulous book:
Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century.
“The controversy over health care reflects a much broader and deeper constitutional void in American life. Some fifteen years ago, a Supreme Court Justice asked the United States Solicitor General ( the government’s lawyer for Supreme Court cases ) if he could name an activity or program that, in his view, would fall outside the bounds of what the Constitution authorized the federal government to do. He could not.
This contempt for constitutional limitations on the federal government is bipartisan and long-standing. Unsurprisingly, when the Constitution is thought of not as the strict limitation on government that its original supporters sold it as, but as something so completely broad as almost to defy limitation, government will continue to grow. Some federal activities have begun to alarm even those who have historically cheered government growth as a progressive force. Yet nothing has been able to stop it. Even Ronald Reagan, for all his charisma and rhetorical prowess, was able only to slow the growth of certain categories of federal spending. In 1994, the Republican Party won control of both house of Congress in a historic off-year election victory. Government would at last be shrunk, politicians assured us.

“Nullification is Jefferson’s remedy for a government that acts as if it has no limits. It’s an answer to the question – what do you do when the federal government exceeds its constitutional powers.”
Tom Woods on Wisconsin Public Radio, July 27, 2010. From the show website:
According to Joy Cardin’s guest, after seven, state governments should be more willing to use their Tenth Amendment rights to nullify unconstitutional federal laws. He describes how the federal government is too over-reaching, not leaving enough room for states to decide on matters like healthcare and immigration. Guest: Thomas Woods, Jr., Senior fellow, Ludwig von Mises Institute. Author, “Nullification: How To Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century.”
Tom Kowitz and Michele Gaudin of WGSO 990AM, New Orleans, interview Tom Woods on the topic of his book Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century.
“The states have to function as a restraint on the federal government – because if they don’t, no one will.”
From a press release – looks like a good show to me!
Tune in this coming Saturday, July 24th, 2010 at 1PM CT ** EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW ** Nullification – How We As A Country Can Be Stronger ** with Dr. Thomas E. Woods, JR.
Ask yourself these questions:
What can be done when the Federal Government passes Unconstitutional Laws?
Even more importantly, what can be done when the Federal Government acts as if it is its own Judge and Jury on whether the laws it passes are Legal and Valid?
Are We The People Powerless?
The answer is NO; the Principle of Nullification – where States and Citizens declare an obviously Unconstitutional Law NULL AND VOID is a Basic Principle of how America was founded.
Find out how Nullification **Which Was Used AGAINST Slavery and ON BEHALF OF Black Americans**…. Is Being Used Today to Stem the Tide of the Constant Encroachment of the Federal Government and, most importantly, How it will – again – Make America Stronger.
