The Tenth Amendment Center posted an excellent definition and analysis of State Nullification, which has grown almost exponentially since Barack Hussein Obama seized the White House with a liberal Democrat majority:
When a state ‘nullifies’ a federal law, it is proclaiming that the law in question is void and inoperative, or ‘non-effective,’ within the boundaries of that state; or, in other words, not a law as far as that state is concerned.Is State Nullification the way to stop Obamacare? If we accept the principle that what's happening in D.C. with Democrats "opposing" Obamacare nothing but bread and circuses for the masses, then we'd all best get to work on changing over our State Legislatures to nullify Obamacare and the rest of the Obama agenda.
It’s peaceful, effective, and has a long history in the American tradition. It’s been invoked in support of free speech, in opposition to war and fugitive slave laws, and more. Read more on this history here.
Regarding nullification and health care, there’s already a growing movement right now. Led by Arizona, voters in a number of states may get a chance to approve State Constitutional Amendments in 2010 that would effectively ban national health care in their states. Our sources here at the Tenth Amendment Center indicate to us that we should expect to see 20-25 states consider such legislation in 2010.
