The Libertarian Ideal of Nullification

Disunited States

from Wikipedia. Fifty little kingdoms if they get their way

Okay, so Beauchamp and Millhiser’s article “Beware of Libertarians Bearing Gifts” is about a month old now, but as these legal proceedings proceed, I think it’s important to keep bringing up these conversations so that we don’t lose sight of what’s going on. Sort of like the media dropping the IRS scandal when it seemed that most of the groups were political opponents of theirs.

I mean, of course, when Nixon did it against progressive liberals, not the Tea Party baby eaters.

Their article addresses six states that are using states’ rights power of nullifying federal laws they don’t agree with, basically. Yeah, maybe the NSA has some overreach (I don’t think so, but I’ll discuss that later in an upcoming post), I can see how “some” people think that’s “bad” or whatever, but it’s possible. Especially if Bush becomes Emperor again.

The fearful problems raised in the article are real:

“If Utah can cut of [sic] water or electricity to the NSA, what’s to prevent Texas from cutting off power to federal agencies that provide health care to poor people, or North Carolina from turning the lights off on federal voting rights attorneys challenging their comprehensive voter suppression law?”

SO – here we see the trick! Of course, there are the simple reasons, like depriving poor people of health care and making sure non-males and non-whites won’t vote…

…but that’s the bigger point: nullification. It’s back to John C. Calhoun-time, and he was basically responsible for the mentality that led to the civil war.

Once you connect these dots, it’s clear to see what the Tenth Amendment Center is after.

Hell, they even say it on their site – when the Democrats are in power, they’re called “racists”. They even receive criticism from Republicans, often being called “communists,” but we know that really means fascist.

It may seem like a stretch, but I think it’s easy to see here: federal laws protect the little guy from the states, who often try to weasel their way out of things. It happened with segregation and taxes. Since libertarians can’t win national elections, they seek state-level elections, and thus want nullification.

And is it any coincidence that the people who stand to lose the most from lack of federal aid are the poor, and often times minorities? See, it’s the 1840s again for these guys – it’s all about race.

That they’re using “constitutional” arguments is ridiculous – they want to destroy it by utilizing outdated articles and bills to push their anarchist agenda. And we all know what happens when a nation is divided and competes against itself for power.
