New Hampshire and a few other states are resolving to draw a line for states rights. Telling the Federal government:
“It states that New Hampshire people “have the sole and exclusive right of governing themselves as a free, sovereign, and independent State; and do, and forever hereafter shall, exercise and enjoy every power, jurisdiction, and right, pertaining thereto, which is not, or may not hereafter be, by them expressly delegated to the United States of America…”
That means, the resolution states, any “Act by the Congress of the United States, Executive Order of the President of the United States of American or Judicial Order by the Judicatories of the United States of America which assumes a power not delegated to the government … 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.”
It lists as actions that the federal government would be prohibited from doing:
* 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.
* 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.
* 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.
* Surrendering any power delegated or not delegated to any corporation
or foreign government.
* Any act regarding religion; further limitations on freedom of political speech; or further limitations on freedom of the press.
* Further infringements on the right to keep and bear arms including prohibitions of type or quantity of arms or ammunition.
New Hampshire Rep. Dan Itse, a sponsor of the resolution, said he wants New Hampshire to be among the states “standing up to the federal government, enforcing the Constitution.” – as explained in the article by Bob Unruh
“Missouri, Washington and Arizona also have moved in the direction of reasserting states’ rights. ”
Unfortunately for Ohio, our state is known for its lackluster support of freedom. We still don’t have any legislation limiting the inroads made by Kelo. [The Wolves, The Kelo Decision, One More]. Don’t look for it to get better without a concerted effort. WAKE UP PEOPLE!
