Book Creates Controversy at Statehouse

A book is creating quite a stir at the Statehouse.

It's called Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century, written by Thomas Woods.

The book contends that there's a place for nullification, a Thomas Jefferson doctrine that says the states have the option to oppose federal law if they find the law unconstitutional.

It has some legislators thinking about defying the federal government when it comes to the federal healthcare law.

"I read it and I ordered another copy," said Sen. Monty Pearce, R-New Plymouth. "I came down for a meeting with the governor and said ‘I'm going to bring you a copy of this book, governor.' He smiled and said I've already read it."

Nulification of federal laws was addressed during the Jackson Administration in 1828.

Could it be used again?

Not without some very serious consequences...

IMO the election of Jackson was one of the worst things to happen politically in the first half of the 19th century. Its impact still affects us today and it is part of how America became truly democratic rather than largely non-democratic as it was before, among other things.

Interesting stance. Could you explain why his election lead to a greater democraticisation of America? I am very interested in reading the opinion of someone who is not either an autobiographer or a professor. Another point of view is always refreshing.

Do you think the author is sincere, or realized that such a book would have big sales?
