Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century (Hardcover)
By Thomas E. Woods Jr.
Citizens across the country are fed up with the politicians in Washington telling us how to live our lives – and then sticking us with the bill. But what can we do? Actually, we can just say “no.” As New York Times bestselling author Thomas E. Woods, Jr., explains, “nullification” allows states to reject unconstitutional federal laws. For many tea partiers nationwide, nullification is rapidly becoming the only way to stop an overreaching government drunk on power. From privacy to national health care, Woods shows how this growing and popular movement is sweeping across America and empowering states to take action against Obama’s socialist policies and big-government agenda.
“In clear and well-documented arguments, Tom Woods gives hope to those who wish to tame the federal monster as the Framers intended—by using the utterly lawful and historically accepted principle of Nullification. You must read this book.” – The Honorable Andrew P. Napolitano, senior judicial analyst, Fox News Channel
“Thomas Jefferson said, ‘Whensoever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force.’ It turns out that at least two thirds of congressional spending is absent of any constitutional authority. That means that at the very least, it is going to take the vigorous use of nullification to restore the American republic. Anyone in the Tea Party movement or elsewhere who really wants to limit government ought to start with this highly readable and informative book.” – Walter E. Williams, John M. Olin distinguished professor of economics, George Mason University
“This book is a must read for all who respect and cherish liberty. During these times that challenge our freedoms there is no one more qualified to make U.S. history relevant to the fight against big government than Thomas Woods.” – Barry M. Goldwater, Jr., former member of Congress
