IOTC's March 2012 First Friday speaker, Michael Boldin, presented "Obama vs. Jefferson," telling our audience about the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
In the last two years, some state legislatures have discovered that the states do not have to do what the federal government tells them to do through unlawful national legislation. The states have a duty to nullify federal laws or acts that violate the U.S. Constitution.
U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, 10th Amendment:
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.
Michael Boldin is Executive Director and Senior Editor at the Tenth Amendment Center. Michael writes a regular column, fields media interviews, and travels the country to speak about adhering to the U.S. Constitution.
