Mili Note: While I agree with Longcore, I am willing to take nullification as a first step towards full state’s rights. It’s still better than just sitting here letting DC do their worst.
In Nullification is for Sissies, I stated that nullification is based upon the premise that staying in the Union has some value, and that the Federal government should continue to rule over the states in all the areas of governance except the ones the states nullify.
I’d like to push that statement a little further with a challenge.
Can ANYONE reading this article name EVEN ONE benefit that ANY state enjoys merely because it is one of the United States of America? If you think you can, please write me a note and tell me what benefit you believe exists. I’ll consider your nomination and write about it…and I’ll give you credit. Hell, I’ll even throw in a free Ebook as a prize if you are correct and I cannot refute your nominated benefit.
I am trying to make a very crucial point here…that nullification will not be successful in thwarting the DC criminals in their endeavors to subjugate the American nation under absolute tyranny. Oh sure…some states “nullified” the REAL ID Act and point to it as an example of successful nullification. But Washington does not want to aggressively push REAL ID or it would have already begun the extortion process, just like it did when it forced states to crack down on drunk driving by withholding Federal funds for transportation and roads. When nullification touches serious substantive MONEY AND POWER issues, Washington will ignore nullification…or punish those that try it.
The Declaration of Independence says that in the situations we Americans find ourselves TODAY, we have a duty to either alter or abolish the United States of America…our “Form of Government” under this so-called republic.
So I contend that if a state is going to fight Washington on a serious MONEY AND POWER issue, and there are no tangible benefits to remaining a US State, and nullification proponents already expect a fight when they try nullification…why not jump all the way across the stream and secede?
