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!

Legislative Services Approves Constitutional Amendment for NH Independence

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.
