NULLIFICATION Where the States Just Say NO!
We the People forget our founding fathers LIMITED THE FEDERAL government.
WE THE PEOPLE AS A STATE BODY TRUMP THE FED according to the Constitution.
Not the other way around.
The liberal/progressives would like you to believe CONSTITUTIONAL NULLIFICATION is some radical right-wing “nutty” action.
Apparently that interpretation depends on whose ox is being gored at the moment.
We INFACT see the progressive-left politicians and supporters allow, use and promote “nullification” in illegal immigration, sanctuary cities, and drug legalization daily.
The Rachel Maddows and ilk are either hypocritical, ignorant or both.

If the federal government has the exclusive right to judge the extent of its own powers, warned the resolutions’ authors (James Madison and Thomas Jefferson, respectively), it will continue to grow – regardless of elections, the separation of powers, and other much-touted limits on government power. The Virginia Resolutions spoke of the states’ right to “interpose” between the federal government and the people of the state; the Kentucky Resolutions (in a 1799 follow-up to the original resolutions) used the term “nullification” – the states, they said, could nullify unconstitutional federal laws.
