Really?  You're worried about one 'rich hunter' offending the homosexual crowd - when the rest of the country tiptoes around their feelings?  Wow. Wishy-washy and preachy at the same time.

 @Mike Maharrey Thanks Mike.  I've got your book and am slowly reading it.  I also have the Nullification video and need to watch that.  I'll look at the extra reading links.

I'm reading as much as I can on the subject of nullification - but it still seems to be an even 'greyer' subject than secession is, to me.  I find it easier to see that certain Founders supported nullification (Kentucky Resolutions, Federalist Papers, etc) than to justify it from the Constitution alone.  After reading Article III, along with quotes that other Founders made at the Constitutional Convention, it seems that there is quite a bit of evidence that ANY dispute having to do with the Constitution is expected to be settled by the Federal Supreme Court alone...I don't like that idea at all, but am trying to see evidence to the contrary.  Is it possible that the idea of nullification was never agreed upon at the time of the Convention, and therefore never explicitly mentioned in the Constitution, aside from the Supremacy Clause and Article III?
