Tom Woods on Wisconsin Radio discussing Nullification

This is a great interview on Wisconsin Public Radio where Tom really gets to discuss his points, with great questions from callers, all brilliantly responded to by Tom.. i really enjoyed this one..

'According to Joy Cardin’s guest, Tom Woods, state governments should be more willing to use their Tenth Amendment rights to nullify unconstitutional federal laws. He describes how the federal government is too over-reaching, not leaving enough room for states to decide on matters like healthcare and immigration. Guest: Thomas Woods, Jr., Senior fellow, Ludwig von Mises Institute. Author, "Nullification: How To Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century."'

Furthermore,the whole point

Furthermore,the whole point is to have some control over government.
Today we don't have the rule of law per the constitution,but the rule of men & women based on their ideology.
All levels of our current governments are based on fear.
The federal using fear of foreigners,corporations...for it's benefit.
The state & local using fear of your neighbors to further enrich government and it's benefactors under the guise of "safety" or "for the children",undermining a free society and responsibilities of individuals.

Always good to hear

Always good to hear Mr.Woods.
45 minutes of reason with callers questions.
Of course someone brings up a state re-instituting slavery and women as chattel...
Neither of which would be possible by a majority in this day and age.
Thanks for the post.

The great thing about Tom

The great thing about Tom Woods is he can tailor his message to the viewers. If its the left, he'll talk about war and civil liberties; if its the right he'll talk about welfare and the free market.

The downside to Nullification..

....is that it relies on corrupt state politicians already compromised by the federales to suddenly grow b@lls and then do the right thing.

There is already a process to get an administrative exemption from unconstitutional laws, where the mere application for exemption with the feds constitutes legal exemption, no federal permission required.

Furthermore, it requires no state law be passed and can be done by any local official.

So, unfortunately, the nullifcation movement is burying this little known already existing opportunity and sending us down a road we dont necessarily need to go.

In the long run, we SHOULD go down the nullification road, but that should not stop us from demanding IMMEDIATE administrtive exemptions RIGHT NOW, no waiting.

one can just as easily point out flaws in what you're trying

to do as an alternative. it's easy to criticize and ultimately people elect state officials and if they cannot move from the couch enough to even elect whom they send to represent their neighborhood at a town close by, so will everything else you try be useless. but i guess you would just prioritize your criticism in such a way that anyone who proposes a different method not to your most inclined instinct is essentially a waste of your time.

Nullification is such a no brainer.

It can be the true litmus test of any candidate whether to vote for them or not.

There is a pledge they can sign.

If the candidate won't get behind nullification, it is clear he/she is serving foreign interests and does not believe in securing the unalienable rights of the state citizen.
