Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions

  • 1 Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions

    Резолюции законодательных собраний Кентукки и Вирджинии 1798 и 1799 в ответ на принятие Конгрессом США, который контролировался федералистами [ Federalists], Законов об иностранцах и подстрекательстве к мятежу [ Alien and Sedition Acts]. В резолюции законодателей Кентукки [Kentucky Resolution], составленной Т. Джефферсоном [ Jefferson, Thomas], отмечалось, что деятельность федерального правительства основывается на договоре между штатами [ interstate compact], и если это правительство присваивает себе полномочия, не делегированные ему штатами, то штаты могут объявлять неконституционными его действия, основанные на таких полномочиях. В резолюции Вирджинии [Virginia Resolution], составленной Дж. Мэдисоном [ Madison, James], эта же идея выражена в более дипломатичной форме: она касалась прежде всего прав и свобод личности. Дж. Кэлхун [ Calhoun, John Caldwell] и другие лидеры южных штатов интерпретировали эти резолюции как основу доктрин нуллификации [ Nullification Crisis] и сецессии [ Secession]
