The video of my speech a the Nullify Now event in Cincinnati is now online. I talk about nullifying the PATRIOT Act, nullifying TSA tyranny, and, most importantly, nullifying the State in your own mind.

If you’re anywhere near Austin, Texas, be sure to check out the Nullify Now event there on April 16.  I won’t be at that one, but you’ll get to hear Tom Woods, the Tenth Amendment Center’s Michael Boldin, the Foundation for a Free Society‘s Jason Rink, Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes, and other great libertarian speakers.

As for me, I’ll be at the Mises Circle in Chicago this weekend, and then giving a talk calling for the abolition of copyright and patents at Whittier Law School in Costa Mesa, California on April 14.
