@NB69 @HeatherKahler @GeorgeAdams Okay NB69, now you are devolving into knee-jerk talking points. We Republicans are right to be critical of most American universities, which are hot beds of radicalism, Marxism and anti-Americanism. And yes, liberals do tend to be elitists who think they are smarter and morally superior to everyone else. You should read Thomas Sowell's book, "The Vision of the Anointed."
The truth is, liberals support economic redistribution (socialism), appeasement of tyrants, higher and higher energy costs to please their fanatical "green" constituency, and support unions' economic blackmail for greater and greater benefits, thus forcing jobs overseas where they can be had at more realistic and affordable costs. If you like poverty, be a liberal. If you want a chance at a better life that you construct yourself, vote Republican.

@NB69 @HeatherKahler @GeorgeAdams Okay NB69, after making a couple of salient points, you have now gone off the rails. As for drones in the US, they are starting to be used by police forces of various cities in various states, and that is just a fact, and neither a Republican nor a Democrat phenomenon. It is merely using new technology where helicopters were used in the past -- at a much greater cost.
The Northern states in pre-Civil War America certainly had the right to nullify the fugitive slave laws. The South also certainly had the right to secede. I agree with the other commenter that the South had a right to nullify the Brown vs Board of Education decision, especially since the latter was "legislating from the brench." The Brown decision was not remotely constitutional, though it produced (or so some argue) a good result. What it led to was more draconian federal intervention through forced busing and taking control of the education of several states, costing those states billions of dollars while disrupting and destroying neighborhood schools. Integration went from a right (with which I agree, as long as one lived in the school district) to a federally forced condition (where students were bused miles from their neighborhoods, with which I disagree, merely to force a multiracial student body).

Nullification is a necessary last resort against the radical usurpation of power by the federal government. It is high time a state, or group of states, used it boldly and without apology.
