New Hampshire Reclaims State Supremacy
by Gary Wood (conservative libertarian), Tuesday, February 3, 2009
Leading by example the people of New Hampshire have boldly put the federal government on notice with HCR 6 - A Resolution affirming States' rights based on Jeffersonian principles.
Can you imagine any state in today's economic turmoil putting the federal government on notice? Well, that is exactly what New Hampshire has done and all other states should follow their example. With their House Concurrent Resolution they've spelled out exactly what violations will no longer be tolerated. More over the resolution doesn't stop at a mere legislative warning but carries it to the executive and judicial realms as well. Listen to the language from the resolution; hear it echo in your mind.
Following this is a listing of actions which would cause the nullification. A caveat to the list is that it is not all limiting yet only an example of abuses which the federal government must no longer undertake. Clearly stating the consequences HRC 6 continues, "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."
Anyone believing they are alone in our struggle for a restoration of our foundational principles must now realize they are not. Here is a legislature willing to lead by way of active legislative resolution. Reading through the entire resolution anyone will be bolstered with pride who stands against the tyrannical course our immerging socialist democracy is currently on. As we see this level of resistance we can take heart in knowing our time of restoration is coming.
Does your state have the integrity and intestinal fortitude to follow suit? I'm not sure mine does but we must at least make each of the other 49 states aware of this example and ask the question. If they do not then elections may take on a whole new meaning as we strive to continue our search for honorable representatives who embrace the core principles that gave birth to our wonderful country. Thank you New Hampshire, I for one salutes your stance for liberty and freedom!
In 1799 Thomas Jefferson laid out New Hampshire's right for this resolution when he said;
"RESOLVED: That the principle and construction contended for by sundry of the state legislatures, that the general government is the exclusive judge of the extent of the powers delegated to it, stop nothing short of despotism; since the discretion of those who administer the government, and not the constitution, would be the measure of their powers: That the several states who formed that instrument, being sovereign and independent, have the unquestionable right to judge of its infraction; and that a nullification, by those sovereignties, of all unauthorized acts done under colour of that instrument, is the rightful remedy."
New Hampshire's HRC 6
Seems that those doggone Constitutionalists up in New Hampshire are pulling Washington's chain again with a piece of legislation called HRC 6. Basically, the New Hampshire bill would tell the federal government to take a hike on matters where power has not been given to the feds.
"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.'
