The Ninth Amendment (Amendment IX) to the United States Constitution, which is part of the Bill of Rights, addresses rights of the people that are not specifically enumerated in the Constitution. The following are excerpts from the article entitled, While the Ninth Amendment and the Right of Nullification Protect Our Freedom, Let Us Also Repeal the 20th Century!, taken from the website, ReasonAndJest.com.

"There are so many reasons for Americans to understand and practice nullification — nullifying federal intrusions into our lives and nullifying federal restrictions on our private personal and economic lives and livelihoods."

Murray Rothbard noted, "With the inspiration of the death of the Soviet Union before us, we now know that it can be done. We shall break the clock of social democracy. We shall break the clock of the Great Society. We shall break the clock of the welfare state. We shall break the clock of the New Deal. We shall break the clock of Woodrow Wilson’s New Freedom and perpetual war. We shall repeal the 20th century."
