      The case, then, fairly stated between us and the manufacturing States is, that the Tariff gives them a protection against foreign competition in our own market, by diminishing, in the same proportion, our capacity to compete with our rivals, in the general market of the world. But Calhoun was the catalyst for what followed. The Nullification Theory would allow states to hold a State convention in order to declare whether a law was a violation of the Constitution and needed to be nullified. Woods, Jr.

      At a dinner inJackson was asked to give a toast, which he did, proclaiming the preservation of the Union over all else. South Carolina was about to nullify the Force Bill as well, but simultaneously, a Compromise Tariff was passed by Congress, that defused the Nullification crisis. John C. On entering on this branch of the subject [the inequality and oppression of the Tariff system], the committee feel the painful character of the duty which they must perform.

      The Nullification Theory would allow states to hold a State convention in order to declare whether a law was a violation of the Constitution and needed to be nullified. Talk about backstabbing—at the time, he was running for the office of Jackson's VP, for Pete's sake. Continued below… Professor Potter rejects the historian's tendency to review the period with all the benefits of hindsight. In the primary division of the sovereign powers, and in their exact and just classification, as stated, are to be found the first provisions or checks against the abuse of authority on the part of the absolute majority. Congress did pass some reductions inbut they were not enough to satisfy the discontented. He cut off Calhoun and removed Calhoun's allies from the cabinet.

President Jackson sent ships and soldiers to Charleston and ordered the collector of that port to collect the duties indicated in the protection tariffs. What does Nullification mean?

Proclamation Regarding Nullification (1832)

Nullification is used as a reason to counteract or override the effect or force of something and John C. In drawing the line between the powers of the two--the General and State Governments--the great difficulty consisted in determining correctly to which of the two the various political powers ought to belong.

We want free trade--they restrictions; we want moderate taxes, frugality in the Government, economy, accountability, and a rigid application of the public money to the payment of the debt, and to the objects authorized by the Constitution.

The Constitution may be as Calhoun and the South Carolina nullification movement. book violated by acting against its meaning as against its letter; but it may be proper to dwell a moment on the point in order to understand more fully the real character of the acts under which the interest of this, and other States similarly situated, has been sacrificed.

The document was a protest against the Tariff ofalso known as the Tariff of Abominations. John C. On the great and vital point-the industry of the country--which comprehends almost every interest--the interest of the two great sections is opposed.

If we can now, with the increased price from the Tariff, contend with success, under a reduction of 45 per cent in the prices of our products, we could drive out all competition; and thus add annually to the consumption of our cotton, three or four hundred thousand bales, with a corresponding increase of profit.

In the absence of arguments, drawn from the Constitution itself, the advocates of the power have attempted to call in the aid of precedent. The Government is thus positively restricted to the exercise of those general powers that were supposed to act uniformly on all the parts--leaving the residue to the people of the States, by whom alone, from the very nature of these powers, they can be justly and fairly exercised, as has been stated.

The committee has labored to little purpose, if they have not demonstrated that the very case, which Mr. Calhoun believed the Tariff of Abominations would bring "poverty and utter desolation to the South.

The only safe rule is the Constitution itself--or, if that be doubtful, the history of the times. May there be a conflict between the Constitution and the laws, whereby the rights of citizens may be affected?
