Nullify Federal Healthcare, Message State Government

“That this Assembly doth explicitly and peremptorily declare, that it views the powers of the federal government, as resulting from the compact to which the states are parties, as limited by the plain sense and intention of the instrument constituting that compact–as no further valid than they are authorized by the grants enumerated in that compact; and that, in case of a deliberate, palpable, and dangerous exercise of other powers, not granted by the said compact, the states who are parties thereto have the right, and are in duty bound, to interpose, for arresting the progress of the evil and for maintaining, within their respective limits, the authorities, rights, and liberties, appertaining to them.” – James Madison

The People’s Health and laws relating to it belong to the individual states, not the federal government. Nowhere does the U.S. Constitution enumerate a central government power over healthcare or anything of the like – even if healthcare is considered to be some type of product, as it has been argued, with what power can the federal government force Americans to buy it?

The federal government’s unconstitutional determination that Americans must purchase government-run healthcare must be reversed, and it is doubtful – even with all of the hard efforts of the GOP in Congress – that it will be fully knocked-down at the national level.

It is high time for individual states to exercise the power given them by the Tenth Amendment and nullify the Federal HealthCare Law!

Already there is movement — some state governors and legislators are standing up to the tyranny of Obamacare.

Florida Governor Rick Scott is among the few state executives standing against centralized healthcare. Scott rightfully argues, “This is just another government program where the federal government will run out of money and they’ll put it on the states again. We can’t afford it in Florida.”

Texas Governor Rick Perry has also refused to implement the Federal Healthcare law in his state; he said, “I will not be party to socializing healthcare and bankrupting my state in direct contradiction to our Constitution and our founding principles of limited government.”

Oklahoma State Rep. Mike Ritze told Conbustible.com that he is planning on offering a bill to nullify Obamacare in his state. And in a press release he said,

“I disagree with the Supreme Court’s ruling and believe that state governments were intended to serve as a check on the federal government. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which is better known as ObamaCare, is an example of federal overreach and my legislation will authorize the state to resist it and ban the enforcement of it.”

But outside of these brave individuals and a few others, most States are inactive. Clearly, the population and government of some states want Obamacare, but this is not the case for all. Many states do not want the law, but are leaving it for the US Government, not their own government, to dismantle.

Now is the time to act. Now is the time to demand your state government — your Governor, Senate, and Assembly — join the few courageous defenders of State Sovereignty and Limited Government. Healthcare belongs to the States, not Washington.

Acts of Congress are not always binding on the states. Conbustible.com contributor and 2004 Constitution Party presidential nominee explains:

“Congressional Actions are not always binding on the States. … they are only binding if they are lawful, that is, when they are NOT in conflict with the Constitution and with the Law of Nature and Nature’s God. [See U.S. Constitution, Article VI, 2nd paragraph.] When they are not lawful, the States are supposed to declare them as null and void and of no effect in the state. This is the Doctrine of Nullification.” (emphasis added)

Responding to the recent Supreme Court decision that declared Obamacare constitutional, Douglas Gibbs discusses the origins of the SCOTUS. In “Justice Roberts is Wrong, Nullify!” Gibbs writes:

“Despite liberal opinions that state the judicial branch was established to be a check against Congress, it was not, and in reality there were a number of delegates in the Constitutional Convention in 1787 that argued against the creation of the judicial branch in the first place. Once created, the judicial branch was expected to be the weakest of the three branches of government. It was the two Houses of Congress that were originally designed to be checks against each other. The House of Representatives was the voice of the people, the Senate was the voice of the States, and they checked each other, while working together to check the executive and judicial branches. As for the party or parties responsible for determining the constitutionality of federal law, that task falls upon the States, and the people. As the final arbiters of the Constitution, the States have the authority to ignore (nullify) unconstitutional laws. If the law is unconstitutional, then it is illegal, and therefore the States cannot be compelled to follow those laws.” (emphasis added)

Thomas Jefferson gave a sound warning when he said of Supreme Court Judges: “to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy… The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal.”

The time for action is now.

It is time for the American People, and the People of the Free and Independent States, to know our right to nullify unconstitutional laws and begin to exercise it. it is time to educate those around us and those in government about the Doctrine of Nullification.
