As a 20 year resident of the state of Arizona, I'm going to pick this apart. First the quote from Pearce:
If we don't take back our sovereign ability for the states to control the federal government, I guess we have no right to complain," he said,
the Arizona Republic reports. "I guess 'Obamacare' is OK for you."
I have to say, his head is in the right place. He is one of the few people in charge who can actually see the forest through the trees.
Quote from TPM:
"Nullification laws go against the language of the Constitution, which is pretty clear on the subject:"
It is? Not according to this:
This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be
made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby,
anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.
According to this section of the U.S. constitution, the rights of individual states dictate how the U.S. constitution is to be written: with the
rights of the states coming first. The problem is, is that it is written in such a way as to easily confuse the average reader. Thankfully Pearce is
not your average reader.I'm not taking this out of context either. On the contrary, I'm putting it INTO context.
