Michael Boldin, founder of the Tenth Amendment Center, discusses Thomas Jeffersonâ€™s suggested response to government run amok: nullification; why a compromise agreement on raising the US debt ceiling will mean the current Republican resurgence has already fizzled out; the persistence of state medical marijuana laws despite federal government outrage and unfavorable SCOTUS rulings; why those trying to effect change within government should stick to the local and state levels; the misuse of national guard troops for foreign occupations; and provocative new state gun laws meant to skirt federal regulations and instigate a Supreme Court showdown.
