Nullification: How to Fix Washington Without Congress

The doctrine of Nullification is being revived. The States and local governments have power to resist Federal legislation and control and burdensome programs, lawfully, via the same powers that the Declaration of Independence and Constitution--and their framers--originally asserted.

This is not partisan (except when parties unjustly favor their own pet Federal controls over the States). This actually began to be revived during the Bush administration when states and local governments began passing resolutions or non compliance against the USA PATRIOT ACT and REAL ID.

The States formed the Federal Government, not the Federal government the States, and therefore when it does not function according to the Constitution as a compact they have every right to resist and Nullify any usurpations of power, whether legislative or otherwise.

A legislative act, contrary to the Constitution, is not law.
-- Chief Justice John Marshall
