Personal Liberty Laws in response to the Federal Fugitive Slave Acts of 1793 and 1850 were some of the most successful and important nullification efforts in history. But they didn’t come out of nowhere. Quaker opposition to slavery had a long tradition and led to the formation of the first abolition society in American in 1775.

A radical Change in the “Principles, Opinions, Sentiments and Affection of the People” was the real American Revolution of the 18th century. Are we witnessing the very early beginnings of a new radical change today? Maybe, but as Samuel Adams made clear, it will require our “utmost circumspection, deliberation, fortitude and perseverance.”

Have you ever been attacked as a "statist" because something you support to expand liberty - in a big or small way - doesn’t "go far enough?" Join the club - we’ve heard this kind of thing from a subset of libertarians for years. But their all-or-nothing approach not only rejects the strategy of leading founders like Thomas Jefferson and John Dickinson, it also runs counter to the ideas of Mr. Libertarian himself.

The feds have no delegated power to impose wage controls under the original, legal meaning of the Constitution. Federal supremacists will quickly point to the commerce clause. But that constitutional argument for a federal minimum wage is as ignorant as the economic arguments.

The Founders and Old Revolutionaries told us that liberty would only be safe when the people rejected and resisted usurpations early and often - nip the shoots of arbitrary power in the bud was the maxim. They even provided us with the tools to do so under the Constitution. Yet, many who claim to want to “nullify” the feds today are really just looking for permission to do so from that same federal government.

While some people may believe that Thomas Jefferson invented the doctrine of nullification - because he called it the “rightful remedy” for acts outside the Constitution - he was merely reiterating long-held views on the limits of government power, and strategies to resist them when he drafted the Kentucky Resolutions of 1798.

Published in response to the hated Townshend Acts of 1767, Letters from a Farmer in Pennsylvania were more popular in the colonies than any other publication until Thomas Paine’s Common Sense in 1776. They asserted the colonial cause against imperial British overreach and helped to lay the groundwork for the U.S. Constitution drafted two decades later. The letters also presented important ideas about resisting usurpation.

Thomas Paine’s radical vision and plainspoken style helped inspire the American Revolution, supported individual rights and more. His experience as a privateer and a government tax collector - likely informed his views later in life, which included vehement opposition to war and slavery, and in support of natural rights and the sovereignty of the people.

As Thomas Jefferson warned us, to take a “single step” beyond the limits of the constitution is to take a “boundless field of power.” He was far from alone. As students of history, leading Founders like John Dickinson and George Washington also recognized that any precedent for more power represented a dangerous expansion. But that’s far from how precedents are treated today.

During the ratifying debates, Alexander Hamilton was every bit as Madisonian as James Madison. He sold the Constitution as a document that gave the federal government only a few limited powers. But once it was ratified, he did a complete 180, and his views - more than any other founder - are the foundation for the largest government in the history of the world today.
