Nullification is yet again picking up steam in Dixie.
Pursuing an archaic legal theory that punctuated pre-Civil War disputes between the federal government and states, South Carolina state Rep. Bill Chumley last week pre-filed a bill for the upcoming legislative session that would criminalize implementation of President Barack Obama's 2010 healthcare reform law.
If his bill becomes law, any state official caught enforcing the healthcare law would be guilty of a misdemeanor and "must be fined not more than one thousand dollars or imprisoned not more than two years, or both."

HOORAY South Carolina state Rep. Bill Chumley! 10th amendment vs. TOTALITARIANS BUMP!
This is a great example for the other States!
It needs to be started in other states as well. Excellent idea.
1861 all over again? Maybe Obama does favor Lincoln?
This time there probably will be less bloodshed, as the libs have no stomach for a protracted civil war. And, the pendulum has swung so far to centralization that the feds have a lot to give before that.
It’ll be the south against the union, again. “Union” being SEIU. Can’t wait to set those punks straight.
I appreciate the effort, but this won’t stand.
“I appreciate the effort, but this wont stand.”
And your solution is what?
The FIRST Civil War began in South Carolina too!
As good ol’ Captain Dunlap used to say: “The south will rise again!”
There are but two solutions ither the Supreme Court states that Obamacare is Unconstitutional or the Congress declares it null and void.
Either solution is about as likely to happen as Neil Armstrong walking on the moon again.
Obama isn’t about to let a State walk away unscathed.
Considering that I asked for your solution and you gave an answer that your solution won’t work, where are we going with this post?
You rejected the South Carolina idea and your own solution...so are we playing ping-pong or baking a cake?
I don’t mind playing Sun-Tzu games...
