John,

I would like to suggest one small correction in your very well written article. The analogy of the relationship between a State and the federal government—instead of husband and wife, it should be a parent (the States) and child (the federal government). The States are sovereign and have delegated only a very few powers to its child the federal government. A husband and wife are assumed to be co-equal and that is not at all what the relationship is between the States and the federal government. The State, unlike how it appears today, is the superior authority in the relationship—all the more support for the actions recommended in your article.

A thoughtful article, although an erroneous conclusion.

Professor Wolverton concludes by saying, "Whether or not our Constitution is rescued from the brink of obscurity and irrelevance is the principal (and principle) question to be answered in November." Surely the good professor does not believe that the election of enough Republicans to control the House and perhaps even the Senate will "rescue the Constitution." Granted a change in party labels might slow the meteoric pace of reducing our States to little more than administrative districts, but these new Republicans will continue promoting the all-powerful national government theme, albeit at a slower pace.

We need a peaceful State-by-State revolution that restores the sovereignty of our States. That movement will not occur through the swapping of the seats of power in Washington—as least not until the natural laws of gravity are repealed.

There is no better quote casting light on those that champion the federal leviathan we have allowed to insert itself into every aspect of our lives than when Sam Adams said, “If we love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude, than the animating contest of freedom—go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

Thanks for remembering perhaps the greatest proponent of independence and liberty this country has ever known.

Rick, you have correctly highlighted the bigger problems we have with this abusive and tyrannical federal government that our state leaders have unfortunately allowed to rule over every minuscule aspect of our lives. Yours is the first, and only, posting I have seen that correctly points out the fallacy and dangers of this flawed ruling. Thanks for sounding the alarm.

Michael,

Congratulations on your longevity—4 years on the 'Net is an eternity— and the absolutely great work you are doing. While I believe secession is the ultimate solution for countering an abusive and tyrannical Federal government, one path to eventually restoring State sovereignty and independence is through nullification and interposition of ALL unconstitutional acts. Your service has been key in helping awaken our States to their DUTY of protecting the rights of their citizens.

Thanks for all you have done, and may you have continued success in normalizing the concept of nullification.

I don't know of a treaty these not so united States entered into making marijuana illegal, but if there is such a treaty, then as Article VI, paragraph 2, of the Constitution clearly states, "all treaties made ... shall be the supreme law of the land." Perhaps though, if such a treaty does exist, it could be argued that since the united States did not have the constitutional delegated authority, as per Article I, Section 8, then such agreements are themselves unconstitutional.
