Following the hard work of Alaskans, the legislature, and Americans around the country, and with one swift signature from Alaskan Governor Sean Parnell, HB 69 has:
Made Alaska the second state to successfully complete the nullification of the national defense authorization act’s sections 1021 and 1022
Declared tyrannical federal gun laws infringing upon the 2nd amendment enumerated Rights unenforceable and unconstitutional, including barring any state resources or participation

The signed legislation, Alaska HB 69, which is now officially law, is summarized:
“Prohibiting state and municipal agencies from using assets to implement or aid in the implementation of the requirements of certain federal statutes, regulations, rules, and orders that are applied to infringe on a person’s right to bear arms or right to due process or that implement or aid in the implementation of the federal REAL ID Act of 2005; exempting certain firearms, firearm accessories, and ammunition in this state from federal regulation; declaring certain federal statutes, regulations, rules, and orders unconstitutional under the Constitution of the United States and unenforceable in this state; requiring the attorney general to file any legal action to prevent implementation of a federal statute, regulation, rule, or order that violates the rights of a resident of the state; and providing for an effective date.”

Unlike Romney and Obama, Ron Paul is neither a repeater of Republican Party platitudes about “America’s greatness” nor a mumbler of silly socialist platitudes that sound like they were paraphrased directly from The Communist Manifesto (“From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs”). Ron Paul is a seriously learned man when it comes to economics and political philosophy. He is very familiar with the writings of all the classical liberals, especially Austrian School economists such as Ludwig von Mises, Henry Hazlitt, F.A. Hayek, and Murray Rothbard. As such, he must know that Rothbard considered John C. Calhoun, the nineteenth-century U.S. Senator, Secretary of War, and Vice President of the United States to have been one of America’s greatest political philosophers as well.
Because of his educational background, Ron Paul would have articulated Romney’s truthful comment about how the moochers and parasites of American society (“the 47%”) are on the verge of overwhelming the producers politically. He would not have gotten involved in the mindless media “debate” over whether it is 47 percent or 49 percent of American adults who pay no income taxes but receive benefits from government. He likely would have quoted or paraphrased Rothbard’s favorite American political philosopher, Calhoun, from his magisterial 1850 Disquisition on Government instead.
“When once formed,” Calhoun wrote, a political community “will be divided into two great parties – a major and minor – between which there will be incessant struggles on the one side to retain, and on the other to obtain the majority . . . . ” Consequently, “some portion of the community must pay in taxes more than it receives back in disbursements; while another receives in disbursements more than it pays in taxes.”
The community is thus divided into “two great classes – one consisting of those who . . . pay the taxes . . . and the other, of those who are the recipients of their proceeds.” This will in turn lead to “one class or portion of the community [being] elevated to wealth and power, and the other depressed to abject poverty and dependence, simply by the fiscal action of the government.”
Alabama has become the first state to NULLIFY the United Nations Agenda 21, which was agreed upon by International Government in Rio in 1992 at the Earth Summit on Climate Change, to be imposed on sovereign nations, such as the United States of America.
Alabama SB 477, by Senator Dial, known as the “Due Process for Property Rights Act”, was approved by the Alabama Senate and House, along with achieving a resistant signature from Governor Robert Bentley [Source].
It was rumored that the Governor was nervous about signing the bill, due to his worry about losing Federal funding, as the State has grown dependent as government has grown.
“The moment that idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the Laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. Property must be sacred or liberty cannot exist” -John Adams
The UN Agenda 21 is a policy which aims to dictate environmental law by international government upon free peoples of sovereign governments. In actuality, the UN would act similar to the EPA-environmental protection agency-dictating regulations, which are really laws, collecting taxes and fees, prohibiting and preventing business, development and housing, raiding farms and kicking property owners out, and so on.
The UN would assume absolute control over all matters environmental within your life and the lives of others, from the cigarette you wanted to smoke, to the amount of air you take in and take out, to the amount of electricity you use in your home.
A large amount of patriots and liberty-minded organizations in Alabama and around the country opposed this UN plan enough, and nullifed it. And rightly so.
Best selling author Thomas Woods was Monday’s keynote speaker and addressed the sheriffs and their guests at the evening’s banquet, delivering a sweeping and humorous history of nullification by the states, and how it comports with the sheriffs’ efforts to nullify federal and state tyranny. “And suddenly people are peering into the long neglected Thomas Jefferson toolkit. And they’re looking for things that might work. Now some of these things, like nullification, I have to warn you, are not approved by the New York Times. And, in fact, what I tell you tonight does not fall inside that box that all good Americans are supposed to confine themselves to. We’re supposed to be in that box. You all know it. It goes from Joe Biden to Mitt Romney. You’re allowed to be somewhere in there. But, if you stray a little bit over here citizen, be careful, be careful – you’re not respectable. Well my view is, is that it’s our job as good and decent Americans to crush that box into the ground and then set it on fire.” On January 30-31, 2012 over 100 county sheriffs and peace officers, from over 30 states, united to uphold their oaths of office, protect citizen liberty, and stop state and federal tyranny. Inspired and led by the example of former Graham County Arizona Sheriff Richard Mack, the meeting, which was held in Las Vegas, was funded by the generous donations of thousands of Americans from all fifty states, as well as the support of freedom loving sponsors. The agenda included training on the Bill of Rights, Interposition, Nullification and the importance of Property Rights versus Privileges. Many sheriffs, a police chief and even a county commissioner shared their experiences, challenges and actions taken to uphold their oaths of office, directly with the sheriffs in attendance. The videos of these presentations are shared here on the County Sheriff Project YouTube channel. We hope that you will share these videos with your own county sheriff and all the oath takers in your county.

ACLU Practically Endorses Nullification (Over NDAA)
The American Civil Liberties Union is encouraging local defiance of the notorious parts of the National Defense Authorization Act. Among other things, its model legislation “prohibits state/local employees from aiding the federal armed forces in any investigation, arrest, detention, or trial of any person within the United States under the NDAA.”
As for nullification itself, why not take a look at the super-interesting book on the subject, selling for a mere ten smackers and written by your host?
