FOX NEWS' JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO SAID IT BEST Free people enjoy the right to use nullification as a protective measure...... to have state legislatures act to prevent federal domination.
WORKS LIKE THIS To get your support, the candidate must take a stand to use state govt to nullify the federal govt's unconstitutional overreaching into our lives. Demand candidates nullify ObamaCare.
HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE A legacy of USSC Justice Taney's Dred Scott judicial activism, was that the ruling would lay the groundwork for the rights of states to nullify----to make null; to invalidate; to counteract the force or effectiveness of unconstitutional laws.
Nullification in U.S. history, is a doctrine expounded by the advocates of states' rights. It held that states have the right to declare null and void any federal law that they deem unconstitutional.
Nullification is also a fundamental state right to prevent federal domination. States enjoyed the right to use nullification as a protective measure against unconstitutional federal laws by making them ineffective against their citizens.
For example, Montana nullified federal gun laws.
After Dred Scott, nullification had become a states' right tradition, and both the North and the South exercised it prior to 1861
