@BillWalker You're still hung up on the whole "no judge has approved it so nullification must not be ok" point. See my follow up post here: "In effect, nullification asks that a single state court or state have the authority to make a ruling in the rest of the states assigning itself the authority to become a federal government unto itself...." No, it doesn't. When a state legislature nullifies a federal law it's only for that state. When Kentucky nullified the Alien and Sedition Acts in 1798 they were the only state to do so, and they never claimed to be nullifying those acts on behalf of say, Georgia or New York. Your wolf/sheep analogy is wrong also. It's not about one sheep "eating the rest." It's about one sheep refusing to be eaten, even when the others don't seem to mind being someone's dinner.
