We have an update on the process to get a constitutional amendment on the ballot which would declare independence from the United States. A couple of weeks ago, liberty state representative Mike Sylvia filed his proposed constitutional amendment with “Legislative Services”, the state government bureaucracy that reviews all proposed bills filed by the senators and state reps. Two weeks later, they returned to him the officially drafted CACR or “Constitutional Amendment Concurrent Resolution”, which you can see for yourself here.
Sylvia’s proposed amendment wording was untouched, and in the “voter’s guide” they added this excellent summary:
AT THE PRESENT TIME, New Hampshire exists as a sovereign state of the United States of America.
IF THE AMENDMENT IS ADOPTED, New Hampshire will peaceably declare independence from the United States of America and proceed as its own sovereign nation.
State Reps Mike Sylvia & Matt Santonastaso
That should make it clear to voters what this amendment will do, should it make it to the ballot. The next step is Sylvia must get his co-sponsors to sign on. He recently reported that he has several other reps who have told him they would like to co-sponsor. He must submit the co-sponsors and any final changes by October 7th, next Friday.
Then, Legislative Services will assign a number to the bill, so it will be “CACR X” (where X is whatever number they assign) and it will next be officially set for a committee hearing in early 2022! That is when people will be able to show up and testify publicly regarding their support – or opposition to New Hampshire independence. Exciting times! Stay tuned here to NHexit.US for the latest.
State representative Mike Sylvia appeared on “Declare Your Independence” along with Liberty Block‘s Alu Axelman talked with host Ernest Hancock about how the bill was created and filed, why independence is necessary, and Mike explains the accessible political process here in NH. You’re guaranteed to learn something.

Earlier today, he posted this video where he discusses the inevitable breakup of the United States and specifically brings up the proposed constitutional amendment to allow New Hampshire to peacefully exit the US. He also covers leftist and NH-native Sarah Silverman’s recent statement supporting a divorce between the various states:
New Hampshire state representatives Mike Sylvia and Matt Santonastaso are teaming up to file a bill which, if passed, would put the following proposed constitutional amendment on the 2022 ballot:
“Are you in favor of amending the first part of the New Hampshire Constitution by inserting, after article 7, a new article to read as follows:
[Art.] 7-a. [Independent Nation.] New Hampshire declares itself as independent from the United States and peaceably, immediately proceeds as a sovereign nation. All other references to the United States in this constitution and state statutes and regulations are nullified.”
In order to get on the ballot, it must pass both the NH house and senate by over 60%. If it makes it to the ballot, then to pass it must receive over 2/3rds of the vote. If enough people vote for it, it will go into effect immediately and New Hampshire will be free again.
