Season 2-

Nullify Chapter 1: Small Things Grow Great by Concord

How to stop the feds? The FIRST STEP comes from John Dickinson, the “Penman of the Revolution.”


Nullify Chapter 2: Jefferson on Strategy

For nullification, Thomas Jefferson opposed an all-or-nothing strategy.


Nullify Chapter 3: Patrick Henry and the Virginia Resolves

Resolutions drafted by Patrick Henry were the first nail in the coffin of the Stamp Act - and foreshadowed nullification.


Nullify Chapter 4: Samuel Adams and the Loyal Nine

"Once word of Patrick Henry and the Virginia Resolves spread to Boston, Samuel Adams and the Loyal Nine started taking active steps to nullify the Stamp Act."


Nullify Chapter 5: The Peoples' Nullification of the Stamp Act

"In the end, this combination of official declarations, mass disobedience, local resolutions, support from merchants, and non-enforcement by sheriffs and other local officials created a climate where the Stamp Act was unenforceable. Parliament ended up repealing it even though they didn’t want to. This is what Murray Rothbard called “the peoples’ nullification of the Stamp Act.”


Nullify Chapter 6: Prohibition Nullified

“Prohibition failed because it was unenforceable.”

It wasn’t for a lack enforcement effort on the federal level. But individuals, cities and states resisted on a massive scale. In some cases they even banned prohibition enforcement.


Nullify Chapter 7: Nullifying the Fugitive Slave Act

While many supporters of centralized power like to say that "nullifiers support slavery" - they've got it totally backwards. In the 1850s, Northern states nullified the federal fugitive slave act.


Nullify Chapter 8: Lessons from Rosa Parks

Individual action and resistance is really the backbone of nullification. Without it, the odds of success are reduced significantly.


Nullify Chapter 9: A Blueprint for Failure

Relying solely on state legislators and bureaucrats to nullify a federal act is a bad strategy.


Nullify Chapter 10: Jury Nullification, The Last Line of Defense

Jury nullification is the last line of defense, and can turn around even the worst situation.


Nullify Chapter 11: The Strategy

An effective strategy to nullify - hits back at the feds in four directions.
