KUDOS to the NH State government, even more if this gets passed! Every state should do this! Here is the full text of the bill, HCR 0006


A RESOLUTION affirming States’ rights based on Jeffersonian principles.

...snip...

That any Act by the Congress of the United States, Executive Order of the President of the United States of America or Judicial Order by the Judicatories of the United States of America which assumes a power not delegated to the government of United States of America by the Constitution for the United States of America and which serves to diminish the liberty of the any of the several States or their citizens shall constitute a nullification of the Constitution for the United States of America by the government of the United States of America. Acts which would cause such a nullification include, but are not limited to:

I. Establishing martial law or a state of emergency within one of the States comprising the United States of America without the consent of the legislature of that State.

II. Requiring involuntary servitude, or governmental service other than a draft during a declared war, or pursuant to, or as an alternative to, incarceration after due process of law.

III. Requiring involuntary servitude or governmental service of persons under the age of 18 other than pursuant to, or as an alternative to, incarceration after due process of law.

IV. Surrendering any power delegated or not delegated to any corporation or foreign government.

V. Any act regarding religion; further limitations on freedom of political speech; or further limitations on freedom of the press.

VI. Further infringements on the right to keep and bear arms including prohibitions of type or quantity of arms or ammunition; and

That should any such act of Congress become law or Executive Order or Judicial Order be put into force, all powers previously delegated to the United States of America by the Constitution for the United States shall revert to the several States individually. Any future government of the United States of America shall require ratification of three quarters of the States seeking to form a government of the United States of America and shall not be binding upon any State not seeking to form such a government; and

That copies of this resolution be transmitted by the house clerk to the President of the United States, each member of the United States Congress, and the presiding officers of each State’s legislature.


Awesome, isn't it?

Perhaps you should recall what Governor Richard Call in 1861 told the secessionists from Grove Plantation in Tallahassee, “Gentlemen, you have opened the gates of hell.”

The subsequent deaths of 2% of the US population (about 6 million in today’s terms), the devastation of the Confederate states, their occupation for more than a decade and their impoverishment for more than a century proved Governor Call right—in spades.

Wonderful! Where were these states years back when the president waged an unconstitutional war? How about when he was caught lying about it? Where were these states?

It seems this anger is settled around this stimulus bill, and considering these are righties forging this bill, I see little more than ideological bickering.

This is partisanship, it has nothing to do with caring about the constitution and states right. If it did, I would have seen this years ago.
