As shown at Pat Dollards Young American Documentary, the New Hampshire State Legislature is living up to their state motto, "Live Free or Die."
The New Hampshire state legislature took an unbelievably bold step Monday by introducing a resolution to declare certain actions by the federal government to completely totally void and warning that certain future acts will be viewed as a “breach of peace” with the states themselves that risks “nullifying the Constitution.”
This act by New Hampshire is a clear warning to the federal government that they could face being stripped of their power by the States (presumably through civil war!
The remarkable document outlines with perfect clarity, some basics long forgotten. For instance, it reminds Congress “That the Constitution of the United States, having delegated to Congress a power to punish treason, counterfeiting the securities and current coin of the United States, piracies, and felonies committed on the high seas, and offences against the law of nations, slavery, and no other crimes whatsoever;. . . . . therefore all acts of Congress which assume to create, define, or punish crimes, other than those so enumerated in the Constitution are altogether void, and of no force;”
Federal gun crime laws? Void. Federal drug crime laws? Void. The gazzillion other federal criminal laws that deal with anything other than the specific enumerated crimes? ALL VOID.

Will other freedom loving states join in by supporting New Hampshire and passing similar legislation themselves? Time can only tell. However, I certainly do hope that other states see how we are being striped of liberties and freedoms by the slow move towards Socialism and take a brave stand against the encroaching federal take over.
Washington State has proposed a similar bill with HJM 4009 - 2009-10
Arizona, Montana, Michigan, Missouri & Hawaii are following suit, with Hawaii claiming Independence as well. California and Georgia are said to also be drafting similar legislation soon if not already.
