(Natural News) Members of the North Dakota legislature have introduced a bill that would allow for the direct sale of raw milk and raw milk products from producer to consumer. If passed, the new law would deal a blow to federal hegemony over the states. The Tenth Amendment Center educates citizens on states’ rights that have been eroded and usurped by the malefactors in Washington. For those who need a reminder, the tenth amendment of the US Constitution reads: 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.
The Tenth Amendment Center website describes nullification as “any act or set of acts, which has as its end result, a particular federal law being rendered null and void, or just plain unenforceable in your area. Nullification often begins with members of your state legislature declaring a federal act unconstitutional and then committing to resist its implementation. It usually involves a bill, passed by both houses and signed by your governor.” Our Founding Fathers Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson formulated the concept of nullification to combat federal encroachment on state rights in their day, and state citizens today would do well to follow their lead. An encouraging contemporary example of nullification is the legalization of Cannabis in an ever growing number of states. (RELATED: See more constitutional topics at Liberty.news) (Click to Article)
