Handwriting on the Wall

Nullification is one of the most important constitutional options that deserves preservation at all costs. Nullification is the state’s right to opt out of a federal law that the state finds objectionable, inappropriate or redundant to them for whatever reason. In modern times it has been the trend of federal government to extort state compliance by withholding federal aid and funding if states choose to employ the nullification option. In fact, in the case of medicinal marijuana, the federal government is illegally imposing its will by overriding the state’s sovereignty by leveling legal penalties against doctors prescribing it legally under state law. This is a typical example of political bullying. The federal government is acting with undeniable criminality in this case.

This is where things argue strongly in favor of the Libertarian concept of smaller government. Republican conservatives will whine at me that it is a republican concept to endorse smaller government and to those people I say, shut up and sit down or I’ll bitch-slap the shit out of you.

What the current HUGE government has provided for itself in the way of armor is the plethoric galaxy of indecipherable and convoluted laws that the most educated genius professors of law cannot understand let alone defend, and yet the government uses them to hide behind. The object being, that no matter who you are or what you are doing, there will be a law against it somewhere on the books. If the government wants you, your town, community or state, they will simply set an army of lawyers and paralegals, paid for by your tax dollars, to work uncovering a slew of laws and level them against you.

The past two presidents have used their Executive Privilege to override a facet of the constitution that was put in place to be expressly iron-clad and unchangeable. Posse Comitatus, a law prohibiting members of the military from exercising powers that maintain “law and order” on non-federal property.
That iron-clad law has now been negated by Bush’s Patriot act and Obama’s NDAA.

This is why Nullification MUST be preserved and employed at a state level and defended by stat law enforcement and militia if need be. I hate to think that these things will become necessary in the near future, but we ignore the handwriting on the wall at our own peril. I often wonder how bold and bright does that print have to be?
