Back in 1799, Thomas Jefferson wrote in his "Kentucky Resolution,"...that "nullification, by those sovereignties, of all unauthorized acts... is the rightful remedy."The Supreme Court would not be happy if the states told it to back off. Neither would the supposedly pro-federalism Republicans who applauded the Raich Decision. This might get interesting.
....If the U.S. president, Congress, and the Supreme Court get it wrong,...then Jefferson had it right back in 1799 when he wrote that states, as creators of the federal government, "being sovereign and independent, have the unquestionable right to judge of its infraction."
John Miller of the Associated Press has the story.
