Yesterday was the 213th anniversary of the Kentucky Resolutions of 1798, that great Jeffersonian document that made the case for state nullification of unconstitutional federal laws. I meant to blog about this but simply forgot. (In my defense, I have been feeling under the weather, and had hosted the Peter Schiff Show that morning on about 45 minutes of sleep.)
Here are some fun ways to commemorate this important anniversary:
(1) Read this piece on the Kentucky Resolutions and their importance, written for the anniversary, by the Tenth Amendment Center’s Michael Boldin;
(2) Read the document itself (as approved by the Kentucky legislature);
(3) Read my essay “Nullification: Answering the Objections”;
(4) Watch “Interview With a Zombie,” my pro-nullification video (be sure to see the blooper reel as well);
(5) Pick up a copy of my book Nullification for a mere ten smackers.
