In Episode 9 of Thoughts from Maharrey Head, I talk about the power of state refusal to cooperate with the federal government, and how we can use it as a strategy to nullify unconstitutional federal acts and overreach.

A Calvin and Hobbes comic strip inspired this episode of Thoughts from Maharrey Head. It vividly illustrates the power of noncooperation.

Simply put, the federal government lacks the resources to implement and enforce all of its laws, regulations and programs. That means states can impede and obstruct most federal laws. In this podcast, I explain how, and I share with you a real-life example of the strategy successfully put into action.

We can do something about federal overreach, and I think you will find this episode encouraging.
