(Feb. 24, 2011) As the battle for states rights heat up across the country, Montana and Arizona have leaped out into the lead by introducing the first broad-based State Nullification Reaffirmation Act designed to return the power to the people and their states and rein in federal government abuses of misinterpreted power.
The Model Legislation was researched and created by the Constitutional Justice Division of Wyoming-based United States Patriots Union.
This model legislation aims to reaffirm and reassert broad-based sovereign states rights under the Ninth and Tenth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution by providing both the constitutional grounds and legislative methods by which states can swiftly nullify any past, present or future unconstitutional acts of the federal government.
The primary parts of the model include the following;
a) Establish the constitutional grounds for state nullification
b) Establish a swift method for nullification of any unconstitutional federal act, past, present or future
c) Establish that only the US Supreme Court has original jurisdiction under Article III of the US Constitution
d) Establish that the people (not the courts) have the final word
e) Establish the very limited role and power of the federal government under the Ninth and Tenth Amendments
f) Reject modern expansions of power via misinterpretations of the commerce, welfare and supremacy clauses
g) Regain state and citizen control over the runaway FED

If the individual never goes onto federal territory, the fedgov has no jurisdiction - the county sheriff does.
