The next big step for the NH Exit constitutional amendment, CACR 32, is this Thursday March 10th, when it will come to the full state house for a vote. Supporters of New Hampshire independence should immediately call or email their state representatives and ask them to support CACR 32. Please remind them that voting on CACR 32 is NOT a vote on state secession. Their vote is on whether or not to put the question on the ballot for the people to decide.

Many reps are confused and believe that if they vote to pass CACR 32 that they are supporting independence for NH and that is not true. Voting to kill CACR 32 means they are anti-democratic and do not want to allow the people of New Hampshire to vote on the matter.  Please be kind to the confused reps and try to help them understand rather than getting upset.

Here’s a handy tool you can use to discover your local state reps and get their contact information. While you can contact more than just your area’s reps, reps outside your area may not consider your comments as seriously as your local reps. So, if your time is limited, keep your state rep outreach to your area’s reps only.

Second, if you have free time this Thursday March 10th, please show up at the state house in Concord at 107 N Main St for their full house session where CACR 32 will be heard. We do not know the exact time CACR 32 will come up, but it is expected to happen at some point. The session begins at 9am but some NH Independence activists will be arriving much earlier, some as early as 7:30am, for a rally outside the state house. Feel free to bring signs or shirts promoting independence for New Hampshire. Be sure to also connect with our chat rooms on Matrix or Telegram to help coordinate. Both chat rooms are linked together, so if you join one, you needn’t join the other.

Earlier this winter, the committee hearing the bill voted it “Inexpedient to Legislate” 21-0, however there are 400 state reps in New Hampshire and because it’s a constitutional amendment any vote of the full house must be a “roll call” vote. Roll call means that each representative’s vote is recorded so we know how each state rep voted. We need to be present on Thursday to show them there is support for CACR 32 and that we are watching to see how they vote. See you Thursday morning at the state house in Concord!

NH National Anthem to be Sung at Rally Prior to Independence Bill Public Hearing on Jan 20th

NH National Anthem
NH National Anthem, “Live Free or Die”

By now, you may already know about the historic, first-ever public hearing on NH independence constitutional amendment CACR 32 happening this Thursday, January 20th at 3:30pm in room 206 of the Legislative Office Building in Concord, NH. However, you may not know that there is a rally happening prior to the hearing, starting at 2pm in front of the LOB at 33 N State St. Supporters of NH Exit will be gathering to hold signs, NH flags, network, listen to speakers, and join in singing the New Hampshire National Anthem!

What is the NH National Anthem? Back in the 70s, a previous governor, Meldrim Thompson Jr., released a very catchy little tune during his campaign called “Live Free or Die”. It recently resurfaced in the NH liberty community and with a little tweaking, the song has been reworked now as the NH National Anthem! You can download the songsheet graphic and read the words here. Thanks to NH native Bill Barger for the excellent graphic design.

In addition to the rally at 2pm, just before the hearing we’ll hold a press conference in the lobby of of Legislative Office Building starting at 3pm. It will feature, at minimum, CACR 32 bill sponsor Rep. Mike Sylvia of Belmont and the president of the Foundation for NH Independence, Alu Axelman.

Dress warm, bring your friends and NH flags and any pro-secession signage and join us this Thursday afternoon at 33 N State St. in Concord starting at 2pm! Whether you can or can’t attend, please read this post to learn the steps you can take to help us get this constitutional amendment passed!

NH Independence Bill Public Hearing is Jan 20th at 3:30pm – Mark your calendar; tell your friends!

Legislative Office Building, Concord
Legislative Office Building, 33 N State St., Concord, NH

A historic time and date is approaching. Late last Summer, a bunch of heroic state representatives filed CACR 32, the NHexit constitutional amendment. That alone was historic, as CACR 32 is the first time ever that the people of any state will be given the opportunity to officially speak to their legislature on the topic of whether or not we should leave the United States empire as we once left the British empire.

That is because unlike many other states, every bill filed in New Hampshire is given a public hearing. So, this will be your chance to speak publicly in favor of independence. If we can pack the hearing with supporters, CACR 32 could have a chance of passing, which would then put it to a vote of the people in November. With 2/3rds voting in support, we would immediately declare peaceful independence from the United States and proceed as a sovereign nation.

Mark your calendar now for January 20th, 3:30pm. The location is the Legislative Office Building in Concord, NH at 33 N State St, room 206. However, the room number is subject to change based on how many people show up. By default, bill hearings are held in small rooms with barely enough seating for the committee and perhaps a dozen attendees. However, if enough people pack the room, the committee will have to move the hearing to a larger room. Join our Telegram or Matrix chat rooms for ongoing updates from on-the-ground, or just ask at the front desk where the State-Federal Relations and Veterans Affairs committee is meeting – hopefully we’ll be easy to spot with a big crowd.

The most important thing you can do is attend this meeting, whether or not you want to speak. Every hearing at the state house also allows you to sign your name to a sheet indicating whether you are for the bill being heard, so at minimum you should sign the sheet in the hearing, and if you are so moved, also sign up to speak in favor of CACR 32. Remember, the bill, if passed would only place the question on the 2022 ballot, so we don’t need to convince the representatives to support secession, only that they should support letting the people vote on it.

Whether or not you can attend the meeting, you can help immediately in other ways:

See you January 20th at 3:30pm at the Legislative Office Building at 33 N State St. in Concord!

It’s official! NH Exit Amendment is Bill Number “CACR 32”

NHexit.US logo
It’s time to break up, peacefully.

It took a few months, but the proposed constitutional amendment for New Hampshire to declare independence from the United States, submitted for 2022 by seven state representatives, is now official. The Legislative Services department has fully processed the bill and assigned it a bill number, CACR 32.

CACR 32 has also been assigned to a committee, State-Federal Relations and Veterans Affairs, where it will receive a public hearing, as do all bills in New Hampshire. Supporters of independence for New Hampshire are encouraged to contact the committee members in advance of the hearing and ask them to recommend the bill be passed. All twenty-one members are reachable at this email: HouseState-FederalRelationsandVeteransAffairs@leg.state.nh.us.

Interestingly, the secretary of the committee, state representative Susan DeLemus happens to be the wife of Jerry DeLemus, who was just released from five years in federal prison for standing peacefully with the Bundy Ranch back in 2014. Though DeLemus may be a natural ally of New Hampshire Independence, others on the committee will likely need persuading, according to Alu Axelman at LibertyBlock.com.

When contacting the state reps on the committee, it’s important to remember that we don’t need to get them to agree with NH independence to support the bill. All they need to agree with is that the people of New Hampshire should have the chance to vote on the question. To oppose CACR 32 is to oppose allowing people to have their say on NH independence. If empire-loyalist state reps love the federal government so much, surely they trust their constituents will decide to stick with the feds, and should let them have the chance to show the world their loyalty.

Voter's Guide
This voter’s guide could be on the 2022 ballot.

Any state rep voting against CACR 32 is clearly frightened of what the people of New Hampshire would do at the polls when confronted with this question:

“Are you in favor of amending the first part of the constitution by inserting after article 7 a new article to read as follows:

[Art.] 7-a.  [Independent Nation.] New Hampshire peaceably declares independence from the United States and immediately proceeds as a sovereign nation.  All other references to the United States in this constitution, state statutes and regulations are nullified.”

In order to get on the ballot, it must pass both the NH house and senate with over 60%. If it appears on the 2022 ballot, it requires 2/3rds of NH voters to pass. Step one is to get the bill through the committee with an OTP – Ought to Pass recommendation. This can be done if enough people reach out directly to the committee members and then show up in-person for the public hearing where they can speak out in favor of the bill. As of now, the date for the public hearing has not yet been set. Stay tuned here at NHexit.US for updates on when and where.

Regardless of what happens with the committee, just having a public hearing on the bill means that New Hampshire is ahead of the other two big states where independence is being discussed, California and Texas. Loyalists in the TX legislature killed their bill earlier this year before it could ever be heard, and CA is still struggling to get their proposal on the ballot.

We’re making history. With your help reaching out to the committee, this bill could be on its way to making New Hampshire the first state to peacefully exit the United States. At the very least, it’s going to get a lot of conversations started and minds will be changed to favor #NHexit.

NH State Reps to File Constitutional Amendment to Declare Independence from U.S.

State Reps Mike Sylvia, Matt Santonastaso

State Reps Mike Sylvia & Matt Santonastaso

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.
