Bonus Episode: Nullification and the U.S. Constitution

This bonus episodes discusses the nature of the American Union. I present the compact theory of the union and discuss why nullification is not only needed, but it was never used to protect slavery.

If you want more information on this topic there are a couple of great books I’d recommend, both of which are written in a way that makes them accessible to the general public.

First, Thomas E. Woods book on Nullification (that’s also the title) and his book “The Politically Incorrect Guide to American history.” He also has a book, co-written with Kevin Gutzman titled “Who Killed the Constitution.”

Another good book is Brion McClanahan’s book on Alexander Hamilton “How Alexander Hamilton Screwed Up America.” Again, Dr. McClanahan writes in a way that makes this book accessible to the general public without being dumbed down.
