Resolution of Independence of the Republic of New Hampshire

Resolution of Independence of the Republic of New Hampshire

Whereas, the people of New Hampshire have recently endured prolonged and unwarranted abrogation of their natural rights; to freely and peaceably assemble, to freely travel, and to be secure in their persons and affects, as caused and encouraged by acts of the General Court and orders issued by the Governor and Council pursuant to such acts under the auspices of emergency powers;

Wherefore, the Governor and Council have imposed excessive fines and civil or criminal penalties for having violated their orders without the explicit consent of the Representatives of the General Court for these impositions;

Whereas, the people of New Hampshire have suffered abject denial of the exercise of their natural rights, and serious injury by the government of the United States of America in Congress assembled as a result of its following acts: Federal Reserve Act (1913), Espionage Act (1917), Sedition Act (1918), National Firearms Act (1934), Social Security Act (1935), Anti-Price Discrimination Act (1936), Alien Registration Act (1940), Subversive Activities Act (1950), Immigration and Nationality Act (1952), National Defense Authorization Acts (1961-2020), Gun Control Act (1968), National Emergencies Act (1976), Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (1978), Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act (1994), USA PATRIOT Act (2001), Homeland Security Act (2002), Real ID Act (2005), Protect America Act (2007), USA FREEDOM Act (2015), Bipartisan Budget Act (2019), CARES Act (2020), Consolidated Appropriations Act (2020);

Wherefore, the aforementioned acts of the Federal Congress offered justification for servants and agents of the Federal Executive to grossly infringe the rights of inhabitants; to engage in lawful commerce, to freely associate, to freely assemble, to demonstrate and protest, to freely speak and express, to freely publish information, to not self-incriminate, to bear arms, to travel unmolested, to due process of law, to be secure in one’s person and property, to be free from unwarranted search or seizure, and to not have tax or imposts levied against them without their consent, and exceeding the powers delegated to that Congress by Article I, Sec. 8 of the Constitution of the United States or otherwise falsely conferring undelegated powers to the Executive; 

Whereas, the Congress of the United States of America has empowered the Internal Revenue Service to, under threat of imprisonment, extort the people of New Hampshire pursuant to the Sixteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, without the express consent of the people or their Representatives to the General Court as required by Part I, Art. 28 of the Constitution of New Hampshire;

Whereas, the Congress of the United States has passed innumerable acts which grossly pervert the intent of the Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States; to, with malice, expand the institution of slavery instead of to abolish its private practice and greatly limit and control its public use;

Wherefore, the Presidents of the United States of America have instructed their Attorneys General to grossly abuse the prosecutorial powers of the Executive; to levy charges under the Espionage Act against its own inhabitants for revealing evidence of their high crimes, both domestic and abroad;

Whereas, the Office of the President of the United States, irrespective of its holder, has repeatedly authorized foreign warring and martial actions absent any constitutional Declaration of War or consent of the Congress; exceeding the powers delegated to this office by Art. II, Sec. 2 of the Constitution of the United States;

Whereas, the Presidents and the Congresses of the United States have passed acts and issued orders which have encouraged Federal departments to engage in broad, invasive, general, and warrantless surveillance of the inhabitants, their communications, and their movements, their properties; summarily and in totality nullifying the alleged protections of the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States;

Whereas, the Congress of the United States of America has conspired and used its powers derived and monies extorted from the people to provide for the private emolument of a privileged few;

Whereas, pleas to the Congress and Judiciary of the United States for remedy were left unanswered; leaving the people of New Hampshire to be subject to harassment and assault by servants and agents of the numerous Federal Executive departments;

Whereas, the Constitution of the United States has been so blatantly disrespected and abridged by the innumerable acts of the Congress and orders of the Executive as well as the inaction of the Judiciary, rendering the arrangement created by this compact null;

Whereas, Part I, Art. 1 of the Constitution of New Hampshire declares all rightful powers of governments to be originally derived from the people and their consent;

Whereas, Part I, Art. 32 of the Constitution of New Hampshire has been rendered ineffectual, with the General Court and Judiciary ignoring instruction, petition, or remonstrance in pursuit of redress of grievances;

Whereby, Part I, Art. 3 of the Constitution of New Hampshire provides for the voiding of the surrender or limitation of natural rights in cases where the state established thereby fails to preserve and maintain public liberty or security;

Whereby, Part I, Art. 7 of the Constitution of New Hampshire provides that the people of New Hampshire possess the sole and exclusive right to govern themselves as a free and independent state;

Whereby, Part I, Art. 10 of the Constitution of New Hampshire provides for the right of the people to alter or abolish the government created thereby.

Therefore, be it resolved,

The inhabitants of New Hampshire shall act to alter the form and style of New Hampshire’s government and establish a free, sovereign, and independent Republic of New Hampshire;

That all contracts, commitments, and arrangements having been entered into by the state of New Hampshire with the United States of America in Congress assembled, shall be terminated, severed, or otherwise annulled;
