Now THIS is protesting! Contact your State government and ask if they are doing anything like this.

I called the New Hampshire Legislative Committee and this is legitimate. If you feel that our federal government has gotten "too big for it's britches" (as my grandmother used to say), then it's important that you contact your own State government, give them a copy of this piece of legislation and tell them you'd like to see something like this in your state's legislation.

Isn't this the best piece of Legislation you have seen in YEARS??!!

I have contacted my state Reps, Sens as well as my Federal Reps and Sens, and my governor.

My state needs a bill like this too!

KUDOS to New Hampshire!!

Interesting because the federal government is already in violation of this bill. Specifically, just off the top of my head, Congress shall have the power to lay and collect taxes and Congress shall have the power to coin money and regulate the value thereof. Oh let's see, federal firearms regulations, Patriot Act in regards to Fourth Amendment...I will stop thinking about before this becomes a very long and angry list.

Props to New Hampshire's Legislature
I will be forwarding this to Ohio's legislative body with a request that such a resolution be formally adopted and passed within our state body. This embodies the full body and spirit of State Rights!

Awesome find.
S+F.

It's about time.

I guess the real question is if they have the legislative backbone to pass such a measure? If they do, I am sure many other states will follow suit. Then the question will be how to enforce the legislation?

While I like this kind of stuff, the conspiracy theorist in me thinks legislation of this sort would be used to incite people allowing the controllers to declare martial law.

This is without question the most important thread I have ever seen here.

Great find and thank you sincerely for posting this.

I will definitely be forwarding a copy of this to my state legislators and hopefully my state and others will follow suit.

However, I do not think the feds will take this lying down, there are sure to be threats and implications. I remember when Nevada voted to legalize Marijuana and the fed threatened to stop all federal funding to the state and of course Nevada folded to that authority. Although I personally do not use marijuana, I can see no legitimate reason why it should be illegal, it is after all a weed that will grow in any environment. I do not drink either, but that does not mean that alcohol should be illegal.

The fed will most assuredly use every threat and tool available to them to thwart this. I sincerely hope the states that take place in this understand that when the feds cut off their money supply, it will not matter as their citizens will be paying their taxes to the state and not the feds which will more than compensate for the revenue loss.

Finally a state has felt like it has been pushed far enough to grow a pair. I was hoping I would live to see this day come, perhaps I will. This could very well be the most signifigant development in our lifetimes.

If New Hampshire pulls this off and my state decides to stay put, I will most assuredly be moving to New Hampshire.

Three Cheers for New Hampshire.

Imagine if ALL the states could unite against the federal govt. ?

We could call such a rebellion "The United States of America"

Hell we could even write a constitution, something that would protect our rights and liberties.

And hope that someday, such a union, would not spawn some big self serving monster freakshow in the capitol.

Oh wait....

US Constitution, Section 4 as well as Amendments 10 and maybe 9 for legal justification. Amendment(s) 1 (and if need be, 2) for enforcement.

But then again if voiding the contract nullifies the contract and the Constitution is being used as the contract then it somewhat make the above point moot. Except without the Constitution, the Federal government no longer actually exists. So any action by the former federal government would be actions of a domestic enemy and most (if not all states) have that covered in their state constitutions.

Will it pass? There are many state level politicians in NH that will never reach the few federal offices allotted, so it is possible.

The free state project rears its glorious head!

This is fantastic legislation, and is sure to protect states rights to a great extent.

Naturally article 6 is my personal favourite.

They ought to have included a state-by-state ratification process for any contentious bills such as the PATRIOT act.

Never been happier to live in New Hampshire.

This almost makes up for the "Leftification" of the towns along the MA border.

My local reps are definitely getting a call or two or three.

If it does pass, I hope the State of New Hampshire is ready for the influx of patriots that will be moving there!

I know I will happily buy a winter wardrobe and learn to shovel snow to live in a state that has the stones to stand up against our uncontrollable federal government

I too will be forwarding this on to the Ohio reps. Maybe if they get enough we will see something happen here that will stop the criminal actions of the bigger brother state of DC.

Thomas Jefferson thought about this, here are a few of his quotes on the subject:

"Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories."

"Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny."

"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them."

"It behooves every man who values liberty of conscience for himself, to resist invasions of it in the case of others: or their case may, by change of circumstances, become his own."

"My reading of history convinces me that most bad government results from too much government."

As is evident, this man had wisdom that transcends time itself. He also said this about debt, tell me, do you see any correlation to our current state in this country?

"It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world."

And yet the common people keep neglecting the lessons of history. Or, for that matter, the government doesn't allow these gems of history to be taught in schools. Because I am absolutely convinced that they KNOW their history and think they can outsmart it and come up with the sure fire answer to establish a tyranny AND keep the people passive and happy.

Way to live up to your license plate slogan, New Hampshire! Now, who's taking odds on this thing passing, let's say 50-1 against? And who's taking odds on this thing being enforced, if it does pass, maybe 10,000-1 against? Shame though, because I think this is exactly what we need right now.

I would love to live there - I think it's the most appealing state in the union, with Texas a close second, but the New England climate appeals to me more...

I have thought about moving there a few times, but I can't seem to find affordable housing or steady employment. It'd be a great place to retire, but the job market isn't great there, and the commutes can be beastly, especially in the winter.

I'm only one state away - so close, and yet so far...

Can anyone go about explaining the actual process to contact a state legislature and such. It would also be a great if someone could provide a formal document that should be sent. I am not familiar with this type of stuff but seeing as though that it might make a difference I am willing to try it. I live in New York so Im not sure what side this may sway but I am eager to find out. Please don't flame my ignorance within this subject. Thank you

A most excellent find...

I would suggest to forward this to other disctricts as soon as possible.
