I presume to review this book, even though I am a contributor to it, because it is a fine representation of an increasing tendency across this land of resistance to a federal government grown inept, corrupt, overreaching, overlarge, and overintrusive. That tendency may be labeled, for convenience: nullification.
Obviously, every attempt to increase or establish independence on the state level will eventually run up against laws and regulations on the federal level.
