I wish to highly recommend the book “NULLIFICATION – How To Resist Federal Tyranny In The 21st Century” by Thomas E Woods, Jr.
In this book, Mr. Woods discusses the notion of Nullification which stems from the little-realized fact that the States are the creators, therefore the masters of our Constitution, not its slaves. As such, they retain both the right and the responsibility to nullify any federal law that exceeds the federal authority granted by that Constitution.
Lest any doubt the truth of the preceding statement, I ask you simply to recall that at least 3/4 of the state governments must agree in writing to any alteration of our Constitution for such alteration to become valid. Were the federal government the master, no such agreement would be required.
