The secessionist movement while interesting to contemplate can’t be taken seriously.
What those who abhor the Constitution want us to forget about is the 10th Amendment; and that’s not going to happen.

For budget busting stupidity like ObamaCare, there are now 30 Republican Governors.
When they begin to turn their back on federal health exchanges as some have already, the entire thing goes down as the financial fraud it has been since it’s inception.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve the message.
The website Human Events published an article by Jarret Stepman in which he attacks nullification advocates. In his article, “Secessionists and Nullifiers won’t Succeed,” Stepman agrees that citizens must resist federal power.
“There are far better options on the table, and more legal ways for citizens to resist the power of the federal government.”
However, Stepman says that nullification is not the answer. (more below)

EDITOR’S NOTE: Most Americans take freedom for granted. Igor Prohorov does not. He was born and spent his childhood in a country that suffered under one of the most tyrannical regimes in modern history. His experiences, and those of his family, make his message that much more poignant.
I was born in small port-city of Kerch, Ukraine in 1986. Although I was only 11-years-old when I immigrated to U.S. with my family, I can still remember all the chaos that followed the collapse of the Soviet Union. Gangs ruled the streets; people were selling their own children at the Bazaars to get some money to buy food and pay rent. There was corruption all around, to put it simply.
Although these were tough times, the real tyranny was during the Soviet era. As many of you know, Stalin was a ruthless leader, a murderer who is responsible for more Russians deaths than even Hitler.
One of the people to suffer during Stalin’s regime was my step-grandfather. He was generous enough to sit down with me and tell his story, but was hesitant to go into many details. Alex (he refused to give out his last name), was one of the millions of people that were picked up on a random sweep by the security forces (KGB), and sent to Siberia to work in the Gulags. He was never given a reason for why he was arrested, and ended up serving a couple of years in the slave camps.
Obama shreds the Constitution on a daily basis.

This brings new meaning to tell the Fed’s to back off as states begin to assert their Tenth Amendment rights. For those that may have forgotten, The Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
Already four towns in Maine have passed similar measures, and others around the country have indicated they’re looking at the same.
A county assembly in Washington State has just passed a food freedom ordinance which would punish federal agents with up to ten years in prison and $20,000 fines.

On July 20th, the Stevens County Assembly finalized the ordinance. They are now in the process of collecting signatures from the residents of Stevens County – urging them to to claim his/her natural right to grow, produce, purchase, and consume the foods of their choice.

Paul Abrams trotted out one of the favorite progressive arguments for virtually unlimited federal power in a March 9 Huffington Post article.
The good ole’ “general welfare” clause.
Abrams brings quite an academic pedigree to the party. Yale educated, summa cum laude, multiple advanced degrees…which goes to show an Ivy League education doesn’t necessarily guarantee a student will actually graduate knowing anything.
OK, perhaps that’s a bit harsh. He may be a fine lawyer and an excellent medical doctor, but a constitutional scholar – not so much.
Abrams’ argument goes like this.
