Nullify Now! Springs Into Austin

Written by 

“Nullification begins with the axiomatic point that a federal law that violates the Constitution is no law at all. It is void and of no effect. If a law is unconstitutional and therefore void and of no effect, it is up to the states, the parties to the U.S. Constitution, to declare it so and thus refuse to enforce it ... Nullification provides a shield between the people of a state and an unconstitutional law from the federal government.”

These words, from Thomas Woods, author of Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century, describe the idea of nullification being promoted by the 2011 Nullify Now! (NN) conference, at which Woods will be a featured speaker.  

The 2011 Nullify Now! season began in Phoenix, Arizona in January and traveled on to Cincinnati in March. From Austin (April 16) the tour will head west for a May date in Los Angeles, then on to Kansas City. The tour will likely visit at least twice as many cities as it did last year.
