For us, Bill of Rights Day is every single day of the year.

Today is “Bill of Rights Day” – the 226th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights on Dec. 15, 1791.

While we’re always glad to see people commemorating this important day, the unfortunate truth is that the Bill of Rights – actually, the entire Constitution – is routinely ignored and attacked nearly every day of the year.

The Founders would regularly refer to written constitutions as “parchment barriers.” They knew, as students of history, that governments can’t be trusted to follow the rules given to them.

The key point is this: A free society does not just “happen.” It has to be deliberately defended. As the old saying goes, “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.”

That’s why we believe the best way to “celebrate” Bill of Rights Day is to help teach people how to defend the Constitution without relying on the government to limit its own power. That’s something we do every day of the year.

On June 8, 1789, James Madison addressed the House of Representatives and introduced a proposed Bill of Rights to the Constitution. Just over a year earlier, Madison wrote another extremely important document. In Federalist #46, he provided us a 4-step strategy on how to stop federal programs.

This is a great educational tool for you to read and share with others.

Here’s the bottom line.

You are not supposed to wait 2 or 4 years for some new politicians to get in office and give you permission to be free. You are not supposed to wait 2 or 4 or 6 years for some federal court to tell you, “OK, you be free now.”

You are supposed to stand up resist, refuse to comply, and nullify unconstitutional federal acts – as soon as they happen.

And that resistance needs to be your first response, not your last.

Madison was far from alone in advocating this approach.

In fact, many other prominent founders utilized his strategy – in word and deed – in the years leading up to the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

We’ve been documenting this important history in Nullify Seasons 1 and 2. At the links below, you can watch all 48 short videos from this series. You’ll learn the strategies used by other leading founders like Patrick Henry, John Dickinson, Thomas Jefferson and Samuel Adams – and how to put these strategies into practice today.


In the last few years, we’ve seen more nullification bills introduced – and PASSED – than at any time in history. But with thousands and thousands of unconstitutional federal “laws,” rules, regulations, acts and orders on the books, we’ve got a LOT of work to do.

We can only get the job done with your help!  TAC memberships are the #1 way we build the financial resources needed to get this kind of work done. As little as 2 bucks a month makes a difference.
