Michael Boldin, founder of the Tenth Amendment Center, discusses the “Nullify Now!” event on Saturday, May 28th in Los Angeles; state rebellions on the Real ID Act and TSA airport “security” groping; why the US government threatened to impose a no-fly zone on Texas; how large countries are better served by local control than a vast central government; and why its up to the individual states to nullify the Patriot Act, since Washington politicians remain committed to destroying our civil liberties (with some notable exceptions).

Michael Boldin, founder of the Tenth Amendment Center, discusses Thomas Jeffersonâ€™s suggested response to government run amok: nullification; why a compromise agreement on raising the US debt ceiling will mean the current Republican resurgence has already fizzled out; the persistence of state medical marijuana laws despite federal government outrage and unfavorable SCOTUS rulings; why those trying to effect change within government should stick to the local and state levels; the misuse of national guard troops for foreign occupations; and provocative new state gun laws meant to skirt federal regulations and instigate a Supreme Court showdown.
This interview was conducted by Antiwar Radio producer Angela Keaton.
Michael Boldin, founder of Tenth Amendment Center, discusses the limitations on federal use of state National Guard members, why the Constitution is a good yardstick to measure the lawlessness of government and how a critical mass of states engaged in nullification can overwhelm the federal governmentâ€™s ability to enforce bad laws.
