Real ID, Medical Maryjane, Some gun laws......

These are all things where some states are using interposition and nullification in various degrees right now, to great effect. It will be even better when state legislatures are elected separately from the party system as localism prescribes. Yes the feds would step on any individual defying them on these things, but so far they know better than to try and arrest an entire state government.

I don't say we won't need a convention at some point, but in this current environment it would be a mistake. People want to "take back" Washington when they have not even "taken back" their county court house or state representative.

Localism is for people who can still sleep at night even though somebody they don't know in a city they have never been is doing things differently. ("Localism, A Philosophy of Government" on Amazon for Kindle or Barnes and Noble ebook websites)
