"State nullification is not a violation of the supremacy clause of the Constitution. That clause says that laws made by the United States 'in pursuance' of the Constitution are the supreme law of the land which means that acts not in 'pursuance' of the Constitution are not laws at all. But who is to decide whether an act is or is not in 'pursuance' of the Constitution?" (03/11/13)
