Scott Horton of Antiwar Radio http://www.antiwar.com speaks at Nullify Now in Los Angeles on May 28, 2011, about the American Empire and Foreign Policy. Nullify Now is sponsored by The Foundation for a Free Society and the Tenth Amendment Center.
From Nullify Now (Los Angeles):
The “peace president” bombs. The TSA gropes and scans. The drug war rages on. The fed prints and prints….and prints. Mandates and bailouts never seem to end.
What do we do about it?
Thomas Jefferson gave us the answer in 1798 in defense of free speech – “whensoever the general government assumes undelegated powers….a nullification of the act is the rightful remedy.”
Through historical writings, case studies, and speeches by the nation’s Founders, more than 10 speakers will give you a logical, moral, and constitutionally sound case for nullification, revealing:
What IS nullification? Clue – it’s not what the pundits of the politicians have been telling you.
How nullification has been used in defense of free speech, as resistance to slavery and conscription, and how it’s being used in modern times, right here in California
How we can address the TSA, foreign policy, marijuana, water rights, and other issues through state-based activity
How we can roll back unconstitutional expansions of federal power through nullification
Why the Founding Fathers believed that nullification was the “moderate middle ground”
Why the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution gives the states the power to nullify unconstitutional laws
Why states – not the Supreme Court – should arbitrate disputes between the states and the federal government over the constitutionality of the federal government’s actions.
