So You Want To Nullify Unconstitutional Legislation? Here’s The Nuts & Bolts

Written by:

Nullification and interposition against unconstitutional legislation was championed by our forefathers, including Thomas Jefferson and James Madison.  However, today, many do not either know about it nor do they understand how to go about it.  Yet, the power resides in the people to hold those that work for them to the oath they took when they asked for the people’s vote and were sworn into office.

Michael Maharrey of The Tenth Amendment Center has the nuts and bolts on nullification.

I recently appeared on the Resistance Library Podcast. We talked about nullification as it applies to a wide range of issues, from the Second Amendment to surveillance.

I opened the discussion by giving an overview of the Tenth Amendment, what it means and why the founders insisted on including it. That moved us into a discussion about the work of the Tenth Amendment Center and our nullification efforts – both from a constitutional and practical standpoint.

From there, I explain how the strategy can be used to push back against federal overreach in a number of policy areas including the drug war, gun control and surveillance.

This message not only needs to be understood by the populace, but the people need to begin applying pressure to local and state representatives to begin the nullification process and add in the language the teeth of that nullification which is interposition.
