A very insiteful explanation of a little known topic. If the states would exercise this proven tactic many of us would not be saddled with unconstitutional federal brainstorms.....

"nullification" is very hard to put down. the arthur gives you some remarkable writings of the founding fathers and compares them to what the goverment is doing today and how certain officals are challenging the constution with there own selfish political aims. this book shows you what our principles are truly about and what our elected leaders have forgotten about. great gift idea for a friend or family member.

Most people think a contested law makes its way through our court system, then, if necessary, goes to the Supreme Court for a final decision regarding the law's legality. But that's not the end of the process as envisioned by our Founders. Each individual state may declare a particular law unconstitutional and then refuse to adhere to that law. Read this fascinating book about the process known as nullification. You probably won't learn any of this in school because, as the author points out, it isn't taught!

Woods delivers a blue-print in which change in the way things are done in our name by the invoking of the Constitution is necessary not just change for its own sake but because we are at a crossroads. He whets our appetites for a better, more free world, he reminds us of the precepts of the Framers of the Constitution and points at what time and our own complacency have wrought. I'm left breathless at Woods's insightful presentation of the astuteness and anticipation of the Framers and with the thought that, if we must have a Constitution, then let's have the one we've got as it was meant to be! Just like a blue-print, however, this is no self-help manual - there is no "how to get there from here" route planner, no pre-formatted letter to your congressman or senator. Maybe, however, you owe it to the prescient Framers to do more than just finish reading the book, sighing wistfully and switching back to your favorite soap.
