    on this issue (actually two balls) written by Jefferson and Madison that kept rolling and caused havoc far into the future concerning nullification. They were the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions. Quite and interesting read and here is a link to the summary of them. As one historian noted, Jefferson wrote the KY Resolution when he was a VP (he wrote it secretly) and could very well have been impeached for it.  But he and Madison were appalled at the Alien and Sedition Acts and these resolutions were a result of that.

    As far as "sectional thocracies", I think the Catholic church is already operating those inside of the Catholic owned hospitals across the country.
