    We must nullify Obamacare, because it is unconstitutional and places untenable financial pressure on America's businesses, states, and citizens. All states regardless of their fiscal standing must stand up and sue the Fed to right this wrong.

    Do you have a model for requiring a commitment by a gubernatorial candidate to, if elected, actively pursue our states rights under the Tenth Amendment? (California)

    Is that list of state reps something that you can share? I’d love to hit both the AZ reps and the UT reps on a regular basis, but haven’t taken the time to make a list of my own.

    What would pop up above a person’s head before the light bulb was invented?

    Nullification is our last defence against this POS-in-chief. States need to take back their responsibilities and powers. They need to stop giving them away for federal money. That is either our own money or that of China. The federal governmnet has very little authority…Let’s keep it that way.

    Option # 1……
