A couple of days ago I posted the text of Representative Opsommer’s concurrent resolution in the Michigan house regarding the 10th amendment. Michigan legislators are not the only ones considering such resolutions, and New Hampshire has it’s own.
From NH HCR 6:
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…
And… it goes on to further reinforce the sovereign authority of NH residents, and decries the best efforts of the feds. My sincerest thanks and respect goes out to the legislators in the great state of New Hampshire, who recognize the encroaching federal ambitions which are DIRECT violations of state’s sovereign rights, and further are contradictory to the individual rights of all of the US citizens.
Which will be the next state to remind the bloated power mongering federal government, that it belongs to us, and not the other way around?
