I sure would like to see a graphic on how much public money is wasted every year by effort to pass legislation which is clearly unconstitutional from the get go. It’s funny how all of these dumb asses wrap themselves in the flag and posture as “defenders of the Constitution” when they are anything but…

Just for reference from Article 6 of the Constitution on Supremacy:

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, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

Andrew Jackson called. He wanted to remind these nutjobs about his thoughts on nullification:

“The power to annul a law of the United States, assumed by one State, incompatible with the existence of the Union, contradicted expressly by the letter of the Constitution, unauthorized by its spirit, inconsistent with every principle on which it was founded, and destructive of the great object for which it was formed.”

Great idea. And then they can deal with those pesky civil right laws and the voting rights act.

As a Tennessean, (which in itself is nothing to be overly boastful of), all I can say is “Thank God for Mississippi”.

I blame the Democrats who are kind enough to transfer wealth to these Republican voting welfare states. I say cut off these deadbeats and let’s see how they like life as a rugged individualist then.

Andy added this just in case the nullifiers weren’t completely clear on his meaning:

…..please give my compliments to my friends in your State and say to them, that if a single drop of blood shall be shed there in opposition to the laws of the United States, I will hang the first man I can lay my hand on engaged in such treasonable conduct, upon the first tree I can reach.

If they can Nullify Federal Laws, I say fine. We Nullify Sending them federal money.

Mississippi still doesn’t get it:

I’m completely OK with Mississippi walling itself off from the US legally and physically, as long as we can operate some kind of railroad to get good people with the misfortune to be born in Mississippi into a state where the people have educations…and more than 8 teeth each.

It’s also essential that the people in power in Mississippi never see a federal tax dollar, but that we use some tax money to fund the railroad rescuing any citizens with an IQ over room-temperature.

tl;dr: forget it Skip Intro, It’s Mississippi.

One of my favorite quotes.

One of Andrew Jackson’s two regrets at the end of his life is that he was never able to hang John Calhoun (the other was apparently not shooting Henry Clay).

This isn’t completely unreasonable, or maybe I’m a little manic right now. They hate the civilization that produced and supports them, so why not withdraw that support where the savages are the majority and actually request it.

They can be tax and civilization-free warlords constantly plundering each other on their reservations where they do not impact the national discourse. All Internet traffic from Freedumbia will be clearly marked so that on the Internet we know these people saying crazy things about our country chose not to be Americans, are not our countrymen, and can be disregarded.

If they emit pollution (you know their air will be unbreathable in short order without the EPA in their way) and refuse to compensate us for the damage we can drop daisy-cutters on the pollution source. Other than that they can plunder their own territory until it no longer supports life and enjoy their stunningly ignorant freedumb. Any incursions into the United States without permission will swiftly meet justice. Obviously with a toxic country like Freedumbia on our border, we’ll need a border-fence. We can most-likely talk the Fredumbians into building it and thinking it’s to keep minorities out. That failing, we’ll have Michelle Obama tell them that a fence is unacceptable.

Maybe some of these fiefdoms will actually produce prosperity instead of death, and surprise us all.

The literal interpretation of the states as meth-labs of democracy. Has its appeal.

One of my favorite quotes.

One of Andrew Jackson’s two regrets at the end of his life is that he was never able to hang John Calhoun (the other was apparently not shooting Henry Clay).

Another version of the other regret was that Jackson regretted that none of his racehorses had ever beaten a famed horse called ‘Heynie’s Maria”.

Except for people in the states who don’t support them, of course. You’d be abandoning Mississippi’s black population to prove some ideological point, basically.

You do know what tongue in cheek is, right?
