Nullification of federal laws within states is nothing new it was part of what lead to the civil war. But of course that entire issue has been dumbed down to just being about slavery in the 150 years since
The same logic should apply to all federal impositions on the sovereign States and their constitutional roles and responsibilities.
Medicaid, child support enforcement, education, all the way down to traffic enforcement campaigns . . . which the states “voluntarily” undertake to get “federal” money . . .
BUT WHERE does “federal” money come from ??? We are citizens of the several sovereign States. The feds have no direct citizens except maybe the territories such as Somoa . . .
The imposition can only work because the feds take the lion’s share of the tax revenue of the people of the States!
It should be the other way around since the fed’s constitutional powers are limited.
Logically the feds should not be able to impose DIRECT TAXATION on residents of the sovereign States. IMHO.
The States need to be doing a lot more of the type of thing.
