At Nullify Now! Cincinnati on March 5, 2011, Jacob Huebert speaks on the failure of electoral politicals, the rigged game of the federal judiciary, nullifying the patriot act, the TSA, and government legitimacy in general.

Nullification isn’t about groveling before politicians and judges to get a few scraps of liberty. Nullification is about the people standing up to the federal government and simply saying no. “These are our rights. This is what the constitution limits you to. You may go no further.”

Nullification is the only way that someone outside the federal government, which always wants as much power as it can possibly have no matter who is running it at any given time, can have a say as to what’s constitutional and what isn’t. It’s the only way that the People, instead of their would-be masters in Washington can have a say as to how much liberty they’ll be able to enjoy.

Thanks to Tom Woods and his book, more and more people are waking up to the reality that Presidents, Congress and judges aren’t going to fix things for us. Ever. And, more and more people are looking to nullification as a potential solution to the government’s ever-increasing intrusion on our lives.
