The election results of November 8 reveled the growing dissatisfaction of federal overreach and corruption, which swept many Republicans into office. What’s next for the people to do? To resist federal overreach through their state legislators come January, that’s what. This is fundamental to the American system of government.
In 1787 the states created a compact among themselves forming a federal government to perform specific duties, and no more. It is the duty of the states, therefore, to counter Congress, the president and the supreme court–which they created–when these agents act outside the Constitution. The states are an essential part of the checks-and-balances of the Constitution. They are counteracting forces.
The federal government has overstepped its authority since its creation. In 1798 Thomas Jefferson responded that “whensoever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoriative, void, and of no force.” To counter powers “which have not been delegated,” nullification is the “rightful remedy.”
On Tuesday the Forum will host Alex Newman, Correspondent for The New American, for an update on today’s growing and successful nullification movement on mass surveillance, gun control, asset forfeiture, etc. The time has come for Jefferson’s “rightful remedy.” Via Skype. Discussion to follow.
We meet at noon, order lunch, start at 12:05 p.m., and end at 1:00 p.m. Admission is free. Meal purchases are encouraged.
