My sovereign state, the Republic of Florida, joined the federal Republic of these United States, under the constitution of 1787. Under this constitution, the states granted limited powers to the federal government. All other powers are clearly retained by the people or the sovereign states. Under this agreement, ratified by the Ninth and Tenth Amendments, no state shall be compelled to obey any dictate of the federal government that violates the constitution by usurpation of illegitimate powers.
The courts are meant to be the weakest branch of the federal government; they can only render opinions and have no power over the purse or the sword. Neither the president, congress, nor sovereign states are obliged to obey the courts without support of the executive or legislative branches. Unfortunately our legislative branches are made up of criminals and cowards, unrestrained by an ignorant population that has taken freedom for granted.
Nullification is supported in Federalist #51 and in the Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions of 1798. The power of nullification is currently being used by the more lawful states in our Republic.
