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:
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.
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.
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.
