I have a two part question. First in cases like the Alien Sedition Act and the Slavery Recovery Act did most states pass laws outlawing the enforcement of these acts or did State governors or agency just refuse to enforce the acts? Secondly what would be considered the correct Libertarian or Rothbardian way of nullifying the NDAA or Obama Care? Because a State passing a law not to enforce a Federal law kind of seems to me to increase government.
Before any attempt was made to enforce such a law, the federal district court for the district of Iowa would have issued an injunction banning such enforcement; then, any Iowa official who attempted to enforce it would be in contempt of federal court, and would suffer the consequences.
