We call them "partisan hacks." But the Founders pulled no punches. In 1763, for example, John Adams referred to people supporting a party over principle as "prostitute."

He was right, of course.

Establishment left and right - and their partisan hack supporters - all sound the same when it comes to nullification. When Obama was in power, the primary opposition came from the left, plus Mark Levin and the Heritage Foundation. With Trump in power, the opposition is almost solely from the right. And they all have the same talking points.

The Trump administration has been aggressively pursuing immigration sanctuary cities with new conditions on grant money and in a number of cases currently running through the federal courts. So far the courts have routinely sided with the cities over federal attempts to pull funding. But the administration's approach is actually exposing one federal law on the books that has served as a roadblock to sanctuary city strategy. Losing this game will make the cities even stronger than they are today.

While most efforts to take on gun control focus heavily on the courts, there are other efforts that could end up being more important in practice and effect in the long run. Decriminalizing what has long been prohibited not only opens the door for more liberty, but can also have a big cultural impact too.

The Electoral College has become a hotly contested issue in American politics with a strong and vocal movement to do away with the institution and instead select the president based on whoever receives the most total votes.

In this presentation for Empower U, Michael Maharrey explains what the electoral college is, chronicles how the framers of the Constitution came up with this method of selecting the president and how it fits more broadly with the American Constitutional system.

Maharrey also explains why changing presidential elections to a popular vote would fundamentally alter that system.

Here's something that should be obvious - the federal government isn't authorized to implement treaties that override the limitations on their power under the constitution. On this episode of Good Morning Liberty, Michael Boldin goes through some basics and then talks about how they're using this power to implement a federal prohibition on cannabis/marijuana

In 1786, a group of veterans from the War for Independence challenged the republican government of Massachusetts over harsh taxation and the lack of debt relief. To many, Shays’ Rebellion necessitated the grant of additional power to Congress…but did it really? In this video, Dave Benner explains.

Two lessons for today from the 3rd and 4th Presidents. How Jefferson tackled the national debt, and how Madison dealt with Congress passing a bill for infrastructure spending.
