Call for Nullification

Nullification is a constitutional theory that gives an individual state the right to declare null and void any law passed by the United States Congress which the state deems unacceptable and unconstitutional. The concept is most well-known in the context of the sectionalist crisis that plagued the Union in the 40 years preceding the Civil War.

The origins of nullification are found in the Federalist-Republican debate of the late 1700s. James Madison and Thomas Jefferson in the Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions (1798) declared that the states had the right to nullify laws by which the federal government overstepped its limits of jurisprudence.

Thank Jesus that you are promoting this Constitutional truth. I want my state to nullify any and every piece of "legislation" signed into "law" by that fancy negro.

Would you be willing to put some boots on the ground to do it? That's what we will need

Wow. You really are a racist. This guy just said “signed into "law" by that fancy negro,” and that didn’t even faze you. Too bad nullification is unconstitutional.

The poster's context....The magical Negro is a stereotype which was first applied to presidential candidate Obama by movie and culture critic, David Ehrenstein,who is black in a Los Angeles Times op ed column of March 19, 2007.

According to Ehrenstein, the magical Negro is a non threatening black hero in the popular media, usually the cinema, who was invented to ease feelings of white guilt over slavery and racial injustice. He is noble and devoid of sexual motives, and appears suddenly, out of nowhere, to magically solve the problems of white people.

Ehrenstein opined that "Obama's fame right now has little to do with his political record or what he's written in his two (count 'em) books, or even what he's actually said". Rather, Obama was a popular contender for the presidency because because whites were projecting their "fantasies of curative black benevolence" on him.

However I see you have no problem with using the sexual slur of "teabagger" but then its just part and parcel of the progressive double standard.

As far as nullification being uncontitutional or tresonous...In 1992, in New York v. United States, 505 U.S. 144 (1992), for only the second time in 55 years, the Supreme Court invalidated a portion of a federal law for violating the Tenth Amendment.

"powers not granted to the national government nor prohibited to the states by the constitution of the United States are reserved to the states or the people."

while we are at it....In 1997, the Court again ruled that the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act violated the Tenth Amendment (Printz v. United States, 521 U.S. 898 (1997)).

* As of October 2009[update], "state sovereignty resolutions" or "10th Amendment Resolutions" have been introduced in the legislatures of 37 states. In seven states the resolutions passed (Alaska, Idaho, North Dakota, South Dakota, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Tennessee). [3]

* Firearms Freedom Act Legislation – As of October 2009[update], resolutions have been introduced in the legislatures of 10 states that would "declare[] that any firearms made and retained in-state are beyond the authority of Congress under its constitutional power to regulate commerce among the states". The legislation passed in Montana and Tennessee.

The magical Negro is a racist term coined by your hero rush, but this guy said that “fancy negro.” First, his race is irrelevant, and second what’s fancy about him? He has an education? How dare he.

How is calling you what you are, a teabagger, a sexual slur?

The Supreme Court ruling a law unconstitutional is what it’s supposed to do, and it has nothing to do with nullification.

ok this will be my last reply because you are just playing stupid now...the court cases are those that have upheld states rights under the 10th Amendment.
Nullification is a state excerting its 10th Amendment rights...and of course you know the sexual connotation of the term "teabagger" invented by the gutter minds of progressives...HAPPY NEW YEAR!
