Ron Paul, in the 2nd part of his recent interview on the Mike Church show (click here for part 1), talks about the constitution, foreign policy, national defense, and most importantly for this post – nullification.

For years, the good Dr. has been a staunch supporter of the Constitution – and is probably the only person in Congress who always asks the essential question – “where in the Constitution is this authority”

It’s good to know what’s likely no surprise to his long-time supporters – he’s wholly in favor of nullification as a response to unconstitutional laws and regulations from Washington D.C. Watch the video:

Mike: Right. And that’s the key point here. Now, some questions that I don’t hear a lot of folks get a chance to ask you, and I’d like to ask these three questions in succession. Number one, your thoughts on the following three things: one, nullification.

Ron: I think it’s a great idea. It was never really successful in our history. But I think it’s going to grow in importance. And I think it’s going to grow because the government, the federal government will be seen as inept and ineffective. And I think it’ll almost be de facto in the sense that the states will eventually just ignore some of the mandates.
