I often sum up the work of the Tenth Amendment Center in a single sentence; follow the Constitution, every issue, every time, no exceptions and no excuses. But that often brings up a very valid question. What do we do when the federal government fails to follow the Constitution and exercises powers it was never delegated?

Recently, I appeared on the Good Government Forum airing on 1180AM Radio, Reno, Nevada, and answered that question.

“We have the federal government controlling virtually everything we do in our lives, everything from the amount of water in our toilets to what kind of light bulbs we screw into our fixtures. So the system that was promised, the system that was designed by the founding generation has been completely abandoned and the question always comes up: well, we’ve got this Constitution; how in the world to we make the federal government follow it? It’s like anything, you need an enforcement mechanism, and the was one that was built into the system, unfortunately the American people have failed to use that system. And that’s the power of state government.”

During the interview, I not only explain the principles of nullification, but how to apply the idea at a practical level.
