"Nullification, according to Woods, is based on the concept of“free and independent states” that “have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do.”

Woods further argues that states have the right to opt-out of federal laws.

“In the American system no government is sovereign. The peoples of the states are the sovereigns. It is they who apportion powers between themselves, their state governments, and the federal government. In doing so they are not impairing their sovereignty in any way. To the contrary, they are exercising it.”

It sure seems that he does

No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters
of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but
gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder,
ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any
Title of Nobility.

No State shall, without the Consent of the Congress, lay any Imposts or Duties
on Imports or Exports, except what may be absolutely necessary for executing
its inspection Laws: and the net Produce of all Duties and Imposts, laid by
any State on Imports or Exports, shall be for the Use of the Treasury of the
United States; and all such Laws shall be subject to the Revision and Control
of the Congress.

No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any duty of Tonnage, keep
Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact
with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually
invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.

Is Woods saying that Article 1 section 10 should be ignored?

Let me see if I can place myself in Conservative Nirvana. The country will only work if/when people have the freedom to take responsibilities upon themselves without help from gov't. If they are helped by others it is because both sides benefit. An individuals freedom comes with the underlying responsibilities. When it comes to people that cannot help themselves they should benefit/be supported only from family or charity. If either of these fails , tough. You are not guaranteed comfort and welfare in the Constitution
Everyone should be treated equally except if it goes against certain societal norms.
Laws are made to punish people that break the societal norms. Laws should not be made in an effort to promote behaviors unless to protect the society. Taxes are for Infrastructure and National Defense which are interlinked and not much els
