What are arguments for and against the nullification theory?

The nullification theory is based on what the 10th amendment of the U.S. Constitution didn't say. The 10th amendment granted states and the people reserved rights that wasn't granted to the Federal Government in the Constitution. Since 1796 when Thomas Jefferson and Thomas Madison first tried to nullify tariffs felt unfair to the South, there were many attempts to pass an "Ordinance of Nullification" including then Vice President John C. Calhoun to over turn the tariff acts of 1828 and 1832, that began the succession movement in North Carolina, to allowing the southern states to establish a "separate but equal clause" for minorities. If one is for the nullification acts, they prefer a weaker national government and a stronger cause for states rights. The reverse is true if your against nullification acts. In many commerce cases today, the 10th amendment is repeatedly tested.

What is the controversy between states' rights and the exercise of national power?

States' Rights is the theory that state and local government's actions and laws in dealing with social and economic problems are supreme to federal actions and laws. The theory goes back to the founding of our nation. Jefferson and Madison advocated states' rights in the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions. John C. Calhoun's Theory of Nullification, the South's justification for declaring independence from the US, also advocates states' rights. The argument of the States' Rights theory is that the Constitution is a compact between states, not between people. The states created the national government and gave it only limited power. States' Rights supporters believe that the state is closest to the citizen and can better reflect their wishes.
