More on last Saturday’s nullification/secession event

Posted By Rob Schofield On October 23, 2013 @ 8:16 am In Uncategorized | Comments Disabled

As we noted in this space last week [1], Raleigh played host this past Saturday to a “Nullify Now!” event at which people closely tied to powerful groups and individuals within the modern conservative movment touted some pretty radical stuff –e.g. the notion that states have the right to nullify federal laws they don’t like and even secede from the union. Talk about going back to the 60″s…the 1860′s, that is!

 Today’s Weekly Briefing [2] has some more information and thoughts on the event and makes the argument that, as absurdly wacky as the whole thing was, there is probably good reason for caring and thinking people to take these folks seriously and pay closer attention to what they are saying.
