The following was an email we sent to each legislator in Utah last week. Dear Legislator, I hope that by now you’ve had the time to read, or at least thumb through, the copy of Nullification you were recently sent. Whether or not you agree with all the points presented in the book, the compilation [...]

Federalism is a form of governing in a republic that was launched in earnest, for the first time, through the efforts of the 1787Constitutional Convention. The men who gathered for the convention did not agree on everything and the states’ citizens they represented also disagreed on many things.

Many people feel they are well educated in the subject of federalism while holding a core conviction federal law is supreme. After all, this is what they remember being taught in their high school and college American Government classes. So, the idea of a State thinking it can declare federal law null and void simply fails to register.
Project’s goal is to raise funds to purchase a copy of a new book on the topic of state nullification for every Utah legislator

For this new system to work supremacy would have to be established in each level of governing duty. At the federal level the Constitution and the Laws of the United States were declared supreme over states, counties, wards, and individual people. This is pretty much the way it is taught, it may well sound familiar to those who recently completed a civics class. Not only was it critical for maintaining the balanced center between tyranny and anarchy, it was so critical nearly every citizen would raise their hand and swear an oath to defend it against foreign foes and domestic foes. However, the title of this article is state nullification trumps federal supremacy. How can that be?
