Last week, I sat on a panel flanked by a Commonwealth Foundation activist discussing Obamacare expansion in Pennsylvania and the co-author of Glenn Beck’s novel Agenda 21 discussing one-world government creepiness.

The state nullification angle – mine – was enthusiastically embraced by the group, most of whom never heard of Tom Woods, the Tenth Amendment Center or the Jeffersonian view asserting states stand as the final arbiter of the limits of federal constitutional authority.

Later, the larger group broke into smaller ‘action’ groups – Agenda 21, Obamacare and Second Amendment preservation.  I was assigned to the latter group, and we began our activist training focusing on lobbying, educating and refuting. On the subject of refuting, we walked through the common objections to state nullification. (supremacy clause, neo-confederatism, racism, etc.) These folks – just introduced to the topic of nullification – were already brainstorming on how to spread their knowledge.

As Michael Boldin reported after his speech at PorcFest, the interest and support for what we advocate here at the Tenth Amendment Center is rapidly expanding. Now we need to redirect this energy away from useless DC activism, and focus it on states and localities that are successfully re-asserting their decentralized authority as intended by the Constitution.
