RE: HB 553 on nullification

I find these comments (@ 50:47) rather telling of most in government:

Committee Chair (Rep Creighton) "We have a lot of testimony and commentary, especially with the volume of calls into our offices about the concept of nullification. Uh..you know...it being a legal theory rather than a right depicted in the Constitution. There are many legal scholars with differing opinions on how effective nullification can be. We see groups on the far right advocating for nullification. We have the American Civil Liberties Union advocating today for nullification of the Real ID Act. But overall, that's what these hearings are for, is to hear that testimony and to determine is that the best way for us in state government as leadership in state government, to pursue an effort. I think it's very interesting."

Wait, wait, wait. "A legal theory rather than a right depicted in the Constitution?"

So now we're limited to those rights depicted in the Constitution?!

Do we have the right to Whataburger spicy ketchup? It's so good!

I might as well translate his 2nd to last sentence.

"But overall, that's what these hearings are for, is to lead you to believe that you have a voice. When we've had enough of you, we'll go speak with our handlers and determine what actions are the best way to use state government to our handlers' best interests. After all, we're your leaders. I think I'm very interesting."
