rebel against indefinite detention, well, since then the State of
Washington is now considering a bill the would disallow any
cooperation with such activities by the federal government or
military in their State.
State nullification is the idea that the States can and must refuse
to enforce unconstitutional federal laws.
"Nullification: The Rightful Remedy" is a documentary film, coming

What is Nullification?
Tome Woods is a very intelligent and well respected man (well in my opinion anyway) some politicians, congressmen and a very possibly the President, Big Business and for sure the Rich/Elite might have a slightly different view of him :)

What Is It? State nullification is the idea that the states can and must refuse to enforce unconstitutional federal laws.
Says Who? Says Thomas Jefferson, among other distinguished Americans. His draft of the Kentucky Resolutions of 1798 first introduced the word nullification into American political life, and follow-up resolutions in 1799 employed Jeffersons formulation that nullification is the rightful remedy when the federal government reaches beyond its constitutional powers. In the Virginia Resolutions of 1798, James Madison said the states were duty bound to resist when the federal government violated the Constitution.
But Jefferson didnt invent the idea. Federalist supporters of the Constitution at the Virginia ratifying convention of 1788 assured Virginians that they would be exonerated should the federal government attempt to impose any supplementary condition upon them in other words, if it tried to exercise a power over and above the ones the states had delegated to it. Patrick Henry and later Jefferson himself elaborated on these safeguards that Virginians had been assured of at their ratifying convention.
Whats the Argument for It? Here's an extremely basic summary:
1) The states preceded the Union. The Declaration of Independence speaks of free and independent states that have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do.
Article II of the Articles of Confederation says the states retain their sovereignty, freedom, and independence; they must have enjoyed that sovereignty in the past in order for them to retain it in 1781 when the Articles were officially adopted. The ratification of the Constitution was accomplished not by a single, national vote, but by the individual ratifications of the various states, each assembled in convention.
2) In the American system no government is sovereign. The peoples of the states are the sovereigns. It is they who apportion powers between themselves, their state governments, and the federal government. In doing so they are not impairing their sovereignty in any way. To the contrary, they are exercising it.
