Good to meet you and to work with brian, john and mattie. We have many issues in common. But I can’t work WITH you so long as you are advocating the nullification doctrine. I think that is an unconstitutional remedy for unconstitutional actions and, if taken seriously, would conflict with the oath of office that nc public officials take. I am all for legislation that counters unwise federal law- eg. Hb 2 last year. But others that suggest that state officials arrest federal agents, as some bills did last year inspired by nullification theory, are beyond the pale. I hope that you will continue to study the issue.

Paul “Skip” Stam is poised to take control of the House next January. Another polished Republican who is more concerned with Washington than North Carolina and our rights as outlined in the Constitution in Article IV, Section 4:
The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence.
and the 10th Amendment:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
For additional information concerning nullification, read Diane’s article: NULLIFICATION and THE MYTHS.
There is no doubt that a House controlled by Skip Stam will be a House controlled by the Federal government and its mandates, with no regard for the rights of the people of North Carolina.
