Federal nullification efforts mounting in states

    An Associated Press analysis found that about four-fifths of the states now have enacted local laws that directly reject or ignore federal laws on marijuana use, gun control, health insurance requirements and identification standards for driver's licenses. The recent trend began in Democratic leaning California with a 1996 medical marijuana law and has proliferated lately in Republican strongholds like Kansas, where Gov. Sam Brownback this spring became the first to sign a measure threatening felony charges against federal agents who enforce certain firearms laws in his state.

    Wouldn't it be ironic if the crazy Californian moonbats were the ones to start the revolution against government law?

    The revolution? That is so last year, California has instituted Mexican Law already. The Fed is right behind them, guilty until proven innocent and all that...

    the states begin to reassert their rights. bravo.
    We love the United States of America.
    Not the Federal America.

    Power corrupts and the Federal govt has far too much of it.

    Read closer. I didn't say the California moonbats would start it intentionally. But by essentially breaking ground on the nullification issue with their beloved pot, they may have unintentionally opened the floodgates.
