Here’s Princeton’s Sean Wilentz writing about nullification. Here’s my reply, which exposes him as an uninformed propagandist. (“Uninformed” is exceedingly kind, as you’ll see.) Much more where that came from in Nullification, my forthcoming book.
And below is a YouTube version of my appearance on NPR, opposite Duke Law School’s Neil Siegel. Siegel acknowledges none of my arguments, each of which undermines what he is trying to say. We get a lot of the usual propaganda about the sinister intentions of those who oppose the regime, with Siegel solemnly informing us about how deeply concerned he is, blah blah blah. His defense of the constitutionality of the health-care bill consists of an irrelevant aside about the Committee on Detail, but never points to an actual constitutional clause. He seems unaware of the purposes for which nullification has been employed in the past. If this is the best they can do, we are going to keep steamrolling them.
