I'm not exceptionally gifted when it comes to putting my thoughts in writing, but here goes:
To take up the mantle of nullification is to venture into the realm of Paulbots and libertarians. People who were made in the mold of the Founding Fathers. To do that, would be to cast off the yolk of tyrannical government, which people like Limbaugh, et al, embrace on a daily basis.
From my perspective, they decry Roberts' betrayal of the Constitution, and of the American people, but ultimately accept it as the cost of doing business with they leviathan government they keep propped up with their votes.
It's something I know you and others have alluded to many a time. You either reject big government, and the unavoidable tyranny that it comes packaged with, or you simply bend over and hope they go easy on you. There is no picking and choosing avenues government uses to inject itself into our lives.
