My friend and author Tom Woods knocked one out of the park with his New York Times bestseller on the financial crisis Meltdown and now his latest attack on big government Nullification: How to Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century, is already garnering the same popularity and influence.

At a breakfast meeting in Cayce on Friday, Mark Sanford was the guest of honor where the speaker presented both the governor and South Carolina Comptroller General Richard Eckstrom with a copy of Tom’s latest. Not much action here but perhaps the most significant aspect of this is that Sanford, given his courageous stand against federal stimulus and much unlike most GOP politicians, would likely be willing to take Tom’s proposal to heart. Let’s hope Sanford lets Nikki Haley borrow Nullification when he’s finished with it.
