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.

Keene Sentinel Runs Major Story About NH Exit

NH Independence Above-the-Fold

Despite the fact that the proposed constitutional amendment for New Hampshire independence from the United States has yet to be assigned a bill number, it has showed up as the front page feature story at the Keene Sentinel.

The story claims the proposed amendment is “Perhaps the most startling proposal at the N.H. Legislature”, quite a compliment! It also links here to NHExit.US. Of course, being a mainstream media piece, they have to trot out the standard issue claims about how seceding was supposedly settled by the Civil War, which is nonsense. New Hampshire is proposing peaceful secession, not firing on a federal fort.

NH seceded from the British and we can say goodbye to the abusive tyrants in D.C., too.

Thank you to Sentinel author Rick Green for the coverage.

NHexit Debate – Full Video

Recently, Alu “Elliot” Axelman took on Zach Hampl in a debate on whether New Hampshire should peacefully exit the United States. It took place at the SHELL liberty club on the Seacoast and Axelman – who was advocating NHexit – crushed Hampl in the debate. The audience overwhelmingly voted in favor of Axelman as the winner.

Though Hampl supposedly actually believes in keeping the union together, his defense of the Empire was floundering and unpersuasive with rambling answers. His perspective basically boiled down to some kind of affirmation of the good of the American people while acknowledging the federal government is not good, yet somehow he believes that can somehow be changed, despite generations of effort proving otherwise. That and fearmongering about federal military invasion.

Pro-Independence Speech Given at Concord, NH Freedom Rally + Radio Interview in Salt Lake City, UT

This morning the new President of the Foundation for NH Independence, Alu “Elliot” Axelman, gave a speech at the freedom rally at the state house in Concord, NH. Axelman is also an author and the founder of LibertyBlock.com, a blog that has risen to prominence here in New Hampshire. You can see his full speech here:

In other media coverage of #NHexit, earlier this week NH-based, nationally syndicated talk show host Ian Freeman appeared for an hour on “Path to State Sovereignty” on K-TALK 1640 to discuss NH Independence:

68% of NH Voters: Nation on Wrong Track – Scientific Poll

Graphic Source: WMUR

In a scientific poll conducted by St. Anselm College this month, 68% of 1,323 New Hampshire registered voters said that they believe the country is on the wrong track. Only 21% said it was on the right track, which leaves 11% saying they have no opinion. While this question isn’t specifically about New Hampshire independence, it does suggest a ripe atmosphere for NH voters to accept and seriously consider the proposed constitutional amendment. After all, if it makes it to the ballot in 2022, it will pass with 67% – 2/3rds – of the vote.

The demographic breakdowns are more interesting. More younger voters are dissatisfied than older voters, with 73% of 18-34 year olds and 70% of 35-54 year olds saying “wrong track” compared to 67% of 55-64 and 63% of 65+. This falls in line with other polls specifically about secession, showing younger people are more favorable toward the idea.

Among the political parties, 95% of voters who identified as republicans said “wrong track” as did 74% of undeclared voters. Undeclared voters are the plurality of New Hampshire voters and they are the ones who decide every election. Even 35% of democrats answered “wrong track”, as did 39% of those who self-described as “very liberal”.

75% of those living in the North Country and Lakes Region said “wrong track”, with the other regions around 66-67%. Also, the more “educated” a voter was, the less likely they were to say “wrong track”: 76% of those with a high school-or-less education level, 72% some college, 67% college graduate, 58% graduate school. You can read the full poll results here.

It’s also worth pointing out the poll was only conducted among registered voters and presumably there are some unregistered voters who might get excited enough about the possibility of independence to register to vote, though the percentage of registered voters to general population of New Hampshire is very high.

There has been a lot of buzz about the proposed constitutional amendment, with loyalists to the Empire already writing letters to various newspapers attacking independence. However, the amendment has yet to be assigned a number and has yet to really receive any mainstream media attention as a result, since its difficult at this point to refer to it. Expect to see increasing coverage, interest, and discussion as the months approach the inevitable public hearing in front of a state house committee in early 2022. All bills in New Hampshire must have a public hearing, and this one could be very well attended. This is a conversation whose time has come and people are primed to receive the ideas of independence and an NHexit.

NH Exit Advocates Interviewed on YouTube

Liberty Block founder Alu Axelman recently appeared on the Karlyn Borysenko YouTube channel for nearly two hours and easily handled various questions about New Hampshire independence from the host and her viewers. Watch it here:

Plus, liberty-oriented state representative, and the sponsor of the NH Exit constitutional amendment, Mike Sylvia was recently interviewed on YouTube by the CEO of YES California, the CA independence movement, Marcus Ruiz Evans. You can watch the hour-long interview here:

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

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.
