State Senator Thinks “Nullifiers” Should be Killed

An attorney and former prosecutor KrisAnne Hall had been talking to Republican state Senator Don Gaetz about nullification, especially as it pertains to Obamacare. She even wrote to him explaining what some of the founding fathers believed about the subject to encourage him to support the action of nullifying unconstitutional federal laws.

In his response letter, he explained that he did believe that Obamacare was unconstitutional, and that he would continue to work to repeal and replace it with something else. In the second part of his letter, he recounted a story about President Andrew Jackson and the “nullifiers”:

“As to nullification, I tend to favor the approach used by Florida’s first Governor, Andrew Jackson:  It is said that one evening, while he was president, General Jackson was interrupted in his reading in his bedroom by an alarmed military aide who breathlessly reported, ‘Mr. President, the “nullifiers” are in front of the Executive Mansion with torches and guns. They are screaming that each state has the right to decide for itself which federal laws to follow. They threaten to burn us down if you will not agree with them.’ Without lifting his head from his reading, Andrew Jackson said, ‘Shoot the first nullifier who touches the Flag. And hang the rest.’ Chaplain, I have sworn an oath on my father’s Bible before Almighty God to preserve, protect and defend the constitution and government of the United States. And that’s exactly what I intend to do. Count me with Andrew Jackson. –Senator Don Gaetz “

I guess that’s how Gaetz sees people who believe states have sovereignty over the federal government. We’re just a bunch of angry townspeople with pitchforks and torches. That’s exactly how the media first portrayed the tea party people a couple years ago – angry, white racists who try to incite riots at town hall meetings.

Yet, who is the one actually calling for violence? Gaetz is. He even put it in writing. He wants us all shot or hanged because we would rather live in free and independent states than live in submission to federal tyranny. He thinks that part of his oath to the Constitution is to fight to protect and “preserve the union” at the expense of the Constitution.
