@derekwilson62 back then, they seceded because they OPPOSED nullification which was happening in the north, thwarting federal slavery laws.

@Monorprise yeah, it's surprisingly good stuff from South Carolina. Their legislators are usually pretty bad. But this shows how heavy grassroots pressure can actually move things forward.
@Monorprise That could be coming pretty soon in Colorado and Washington State.

@J Valenzuela right on. that I can work with and actually appreciate that kind of feedback.
"quite irresponsible" ? not so much.

@dmellon @BobBowser Bob also doesn't pay attention to the FACT that the bill requires state and local law enforcement to stop enforcing federal gun control measures.
That - in and of itself - will, as Judge Napolitano has recently said - render federal gun laws "nearly impossible to enforce."
The question - will Kansans do what's needed to make that happen? With Bob's attitude? no. but I'm positive that people will do the right thing next. There's a link in the article above that gives specific action items for Kansans to effectuate the law to the fullest extent.
1 year, 6 months ago on Kansas to Eric Holder: We’re Not Backing Down!
@dmellon @BobBowser exactly. people with an all or nothing attitude are very destructive of efforts to move towards freedom.
Every step forward, small or big, is important. bob is either a troll working for the ATF or just misinformed.
@J Valenzuela a better approach would have been to say -
"Hey man, solid article. But, I bet there's some jerk out there that's going to take this sentence out of context, here's my thoughts..."
@J Valenzuela so yeah, when you overdo it with a word like "irresponsible" I'm not going to respond as if you're friendly, dude. When you start crap with people - sometimes they don't like it.
Next time, I'm sure we can have a more friendly conversation because you won't start it out like that in my home, deal?
to add, nothing exists in a vacuum as you've done with that one sentence in my article. I recommend Rothbard's advice for your perspective:
"For the libertarian, the main task of the present epoch is to cast off his needless and debilitating pessimism, to set his sights on long-run victory and to set about the road to its attainment."
@J Valenzuela Irresponsible? dude, you're on crack. that's so nitpicky it's absurd. if you read the one sentence on its own and don't have any context that our goal is to fight unconstitutional federal acts - sure.
But dude - no way. the whole goal here is the constitution. don't be silly - using "irresponsible" is just that. silly.
@PKato69 neither of them are my type, so no thanks.
And in the future, mind keeping it clean here?
@justinmontana Liberal states are saying no to unconstitutional acts as well - but likely on issues that aren't on your radar. Maryland just nullified unconstitutional federal "laws" on marijuana. Illinois is getting closer to doing the same - AND nullifying warrantless drone spying.
The more these things happen - the better. Overwhelm the feds, and let each state make their own choices - and the feds will be out of your life on issues important to you.
@tkenorth dude. this is a sarcastic attack on the so-called libertarian creep who head's up the CATO institute's board....who wrote the article linked at the end of the blog post. check it out.

@onetenther yeah, I think the MO house could easily impeach this guy. He's claiming in the AP that this is just some form letter - and that "other governors received the same"
So other governors violated their state laws too - this whole thing might blow up in his face. It should.

@Bud Brota First you have to get it through the house. Then it's going to take some work to ensure that all state and local law enforcement is in compliance - rather than playing patsy to the feds. It's not a fast process, but well underway with this bill.

@jodidah thank you!
@daveufirst thanks, Dave!
@GC66 I've known Michael for a few years now.. Not closely, but yes. I was discussing nullification with him on the phone a few weeks back. And he taught my girlfriend how to handle a firearm. Me? I still need a lot of work...
Start on our local level today.
@nullifybadlaws dude. seriously. we are NOT advocating any kind of armed resistance or violence. that is 100% unwelcome here and usually done by infiltrators. Don't ever post that again.
@coastx it's already here. Your insanity!
@coastx that's funny. But if you ever talk that kind of crap in my house again, you won't be welcome back.
@GrumpyOldGoat don't waste your time, man.
@LLKayaker @KathyWashburn Thanks, Kathy!
Well, the idea is pretty sound. nullify everything. We'd have about a 95% change of being right on anything congress does.
Seriously, yes - everything unconstitutional.
@TaskForce16 I drafted a different one.
Dear Barbara Boxer:
go to hell.
@dmellon While these are all important questions, they are way ahead of where things are with the status quo - and with this bill. this is the first step, removing barriers to use gold and silver as tender within the state as the constitution requires.
There's no creation of centralized rules as to how transactions would be priced, used, set - etc. The bill simply authorizes gold and silver to be used as payment of debt.
The rest, for now, would be up to you and the person or people in the transaction.
From there, as people learn how to use gold and silver, it's going to be some time before the market grows around it....but this is a good first step.

1 year, 6 months ago on There’s Nothing Radical about Nullification
@red2685 this is great, and it will play out like in california! Yes. The feds will continue to try to do things their own way, but they do NOT have the manpower to do so.
Los Angeles has over 1000 - ONE THOUSAND - pot shops. It's not working to well for the feds...but they don't want you to know that. They want you to think they're big and tough and roughing everyone up.
They're not. They're failing. miserably.
1 year, 6 months ago on Missouri House votes to Nullify Warrantless Drone Spying, 87-66
@MarkBHopp primarily because this is far beyond what the firearms freedom acts addresses. Yes, this bill does the same as those regarding products made in state. but it also has this doozy of a line:
"Any act, law, treaty, order, rule or regulation of the government of the United States which violates the second amendment to the constitution of the United States is null, void and unenforceable in the state of Kansas"
Kansas would then be required to stand down and refuse to enforce most all federal gun laws - if not all of them....
While I wouldn't expect that to immediately happen, this is the impetus for it to start...
1 year, 6 months ago on Kansas Bill to Nullify Federal Gun Laws Goes to Governor Brownback for Signature
@GuyDaley Kansas is the first at this level...no one's even close. Other states in recent years have passed lesser bills. We hope this encourages them to step it up in future legislative sessions.
@RickMMontes I don't believe Natelson is advocating incorporation. I extremely confident he's referring to federal actions. But I can see how the average reader might get that....

@uglykidjoe Thanks for your thoughts on the article. As far as your two primary perspectives, while they might appear to be logical, I'd really like to see something concrete that validates those views. Would you be able to provide any historical evidence to back those statements up? I'd love to see some research from the debates over the 2nd - and the states' ratification of it.
Hope to see you here again soon!

@zerses @coastx It's definitely on. I'm not seeing the option to edit even my own comments as an admin. Maybe it takes a while to propagate? Or...well, who knows.
@zerses @coastx I just logged in and found it. The option is enabled, not sure if the feature is working, but on the right path. thanks again for mentioning this!
@zerses @coastx I sure hope that's the case and nothing custom needs to be done. Will check on this, and thanks for pointing it out!
@coastx edit feature would be expensive to implement. are you a willing and capable benefactor? we want to to that...

@Nathair Well, you could be right - maybe he, someone who's studied these cases as a high level attorney - somehow learned differently than every other attorney in the country.....and he's just an ignorant little lamb.
Nah. he's a lying crook. I'm comfortable with that.
resistance to those who do wrong is more encompassing for those times - a majority of them - when voting constitution isn't even an option.
@zerses "voting red" is not a solution. Voting Constitution is.
@BrianMartin1 I doubt it. Most governors in the country are absolute criminals...but they generally get re-elected. People are too caught up in the election drama and the political theater that is the fight between democrats and republicans for there to be much substantial change.
@GeorgeSeaver you're obviously clueless about how the constitution works. The federal government gets to exercise those powers delegated to it.
Weed, Obamacare - and all kinds of other crap they do - are NOT delegated to them in the constitution.
Therefore - you're just another scammer - using the constitution to advocate your own political ideology and coming up with some idiotic comment about "exercise of religion" as an excuse to allow the feds to do something they have NO constitutional authority to do.
Sick of hypocrites. Later.
