Who we elect to represent us in Phoenix, Austin, Nashville and countless other state capitals across the country is FAR more important than who we elect to represent us in Washington, DC.  The bad news is that the federal government can’t and won’t be reformed anytime in the near future. Even if Tea Party candidates and others dedicated to upholding the Constitution were to make up more than one quarter of the seats in Congress, (which will never happen) they would still be a small minority fighting an uphill battle. Forget the fact that for every 750,000 Americans, there is only 1 person in Congress to represent them. Is that what you would call meaningful representation? Hardly.

The good news is that states don’t have to obey unconstitutional federal legislation forced upon them and the disappointment we are sure to experience between now and next year is a great opportunity for us all to get real! When it comes to the overlords who rule us from Washington, DC, I urge you to consider the idea that it may be time to switch from a policy of regime change to a policy of containment. That policy of containment is called NULLIFICATION!
