STATE OF THE NULLIFICATION MOVEMENT

Step-by-step. Inch-by-inch. Brick-by-brick. That’s how we build a strong foundation for the Constitution and liberty. This report tells the current story of our efforts.

We like to think of it as a prospectus, of sorts – an “investor’s guide” to our work here the Tenth Amendment Center.

From the Blog

Path to Liberty

Streaming live Monday, Wednesday, Friday at 9:30am Pacific, host Michael Boldin covers the latest news about the constitution and liberty – plus reports on nullification efforts to undermine and defeat federal programs without relying on the federal government to limit its own power.

Thomas Jefferson: Foundation

I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground that “all powers not delegated to the U.S. by the Constitution, not prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states or to the people”

James Madison: Few and Defined

The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.

Theophilus Parsons: Usurpation

An act of usurpation is not law and any man may be justified in its resistance.

Patrick Henry: Primary Object

When the American spirit was in its youth, the language of America was different: Liberty, Sir, was then the primary object.

Mercy Otis Warren: Servitude

We have seen in all ages the many become the slaves of the few; preferring the wretched tranquillity of inglorious ease, they patiently yield to despotic masters, until awakened by multiplied wrongs to the feelings of human nature

Oliver Ellsworth: Void

If they make a law which the Constitution does not authorize, it is void.

Thomas Paine: War Taxes

Taxes were not raised to carry on wars, wars were raised to carry on taxes.

Samuel Adams: Taxation

The supreme power cannot Justly take from any man, any part of his property without his consent, in person or by his Representative.

St. George Tucker: Usurpation

Every extension of the administrative authority beyond its just constitutional limits, is absolutely an act of usurpation.

Rufus King: Judges

The judges must interpret the Laws, they ought not to be legislators.

Patrick Henry: Sword and Purse

Unless a miracle shall interpose, no nation ever did, nor ever can retain its liberty after the loss of the sword and the purse.

 

We work to educate people on the original, legal meaning of the Constitution as drafted by the Founders and approved by the People of the Several States.

We also work to activate people to support a 10th Amendment strategy advised by James Madison, a “refusal to cooperate with officers of the union” as an effective method to reject, resist and nullify unconstitutional federal acts.
