The nullification movement is something that has been pushed by the Tenth Amendment Center and other people concerned with limiting Federal power. Basically, the goal is to help states reclaim their sovereignty. Instead of letting the federal government hand down dictates at will, our founders provided us with the means to push back. So, if you want to learn about nullification, listen below and check out the Tenth Amendment Center.
What is the Nullification Movement?
The focus of this movement is to bring power back to the states. Why do we need to do that? Despite the attempt to limit government, it has grasped more power over the course of the progressive movement. However, things were not always like this, and they don’t have to be like this either. Luckily, the founding fathers foresaw this problem and offered a solution. Thus, we have nullification – the ability for states to deem federal laws unconstitutional and not comply with them. Tom Woods explains below:
“Nullification is the Jeffersonian idea that the states of the American Union must judge the constitutionality of the acts of their agent, the federal government, since no impartial arbiter between them exists.”Tom Woods
The Tenth Amendment Center
To be honest, I am a card-carrying member of the Tenth Amendment Center. I believe in their mission, which may make me a bit biased. That said, this organization is doing tremendous work in the pursuit of liberty and government accountability. Below, you’ll find the text of the 10th Amendment. That’s what the TAC is fighting to preserve.
“Whensoever the general government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force.”-Thomas Jefferson
