"When All Else Fails, Try Something Old: Nullification and State Resistance to Federal Tyranny"

By Matt Hawes

Yesterday, I mentioned that as part of our CPAC 2010 activities, we would have a nullification event featuring Tom Woods. (Who, as he announced in Atlanta, is also currently working on a new book on the subject.)

This event will directly follow Thomas DiLorenzo’s “Lincoln on Liberty” session.

I’m excited about having two excellent speakers tackle two very important topics.  We hope it will have a great impact on attendees and get them thinking about some subjects they may not have ever considered before.

Here’s our promotional information:

To fight big government, we keep trying the same strategies, and nothing seems to work. Even Ronald Reagan couldn’t keep the federal budget from growing. Is it time to try something else?

Pioneered by Thomas Jefferson, nullification is the idea that a state has the right to “nullify” federal legislation it believes violates the Constitution.

The central government in America is on the side of every degenerate aspect of culture and society, and this is true regardless of which party is in power.

The time has come to think seriously about alternatives to the modern state, and Thomas Jefferson gave us the blueprint. Come find out what it was!

This FREE lecture will take place in the Delaware Room on Thursday, February 18 at 2:00 pm. A question and answer will take place following the speech.

There’s still time to sign up for discounted tickets and lodging for CPAC 2010, which takes place February 18-20 in Washington, D.C.  Find out more here.
