David Barton of the organization Wallbuilders takes a firm stance against nullification. How could this be? Does he not profess to believe in the original intent of the U.S. Constitution? I guess that depends on whose intent. Barton, much like others, prefers to focus on the intent of a small faction which favored a super-powerful centralized government far beyond what was authorized by the state sovereignty minded ratifiers

What surprises me most about such an argument is not just that it’s obviously historically inaccurate but that the ones making it profess to believe in Godly limited government. What individual who is actually familiar with the modern day, mass-murdering leviathan based out of D.C. can actually believe such nonsense?
