HCR 6: NH solution to train wreck?

Published:

The New Hampshire state lagislature has introduced a bill, HCR 6, asserting its state's rights.  Basically it says the state will not recognize the federal government in matters where the federal government does not have specific authority or power as provided by the Constitution. 

This looks like an excellent approach to stopping the runaway federal government.  If all states followed suit we'd regain control of our government immediately.  This is as sweet as it gets.

Here is an exerpt (emphasis mine):

That any Act by the Congress of the United States, Executive Order of the President of the United States of America or Judicial Order by the Judicatories of the United States of America which assumes a power not delegated to the government of United States of America by the Constitution for the United States of America and which serves to diminish the liberty of the any of the several States or their citizens shall constitute a nullification of the Constitution for the United States of America by the government of the United States of America. Acts which would cause such a nullification include, but are not limited to:

I. Establishing martial law or a state of emergency within one of the States comprising the United States of America without the consent of the legislature of that State.

II. Requiring involuntary servitude, or governmental service other than a draft during a declared war, or pursuant to, or as an alternative to, incarceration after due process of law.

III. Requiring involuntary servitude or governmental service of persons under the age of 18 other than pursuant to, or as an alternative to, incarceration after due process of law.

IV. Surrendering any power delegated or not delegated to any corporation or foreign government.

V. Any act regarding religion; further limitations on freedom of political speech; or further limitations on freedom of the press.

VI. Further infringements on the right to keep and bear arms including prohibitions of type or quantity of arms or ammunition; and

That should any such act of Congress become law or Executive Order or Judicial Order be put into force, all powers previously delegated to the United States of America by the Constitution for the United States shall revert to the several States individually. Any future government of the United States of America shall require ratification of three quarters of the States seeking to form a government of the United States of America and shall not be binding upon any State not seeking to form such a government; and

That copies of this resolution be transmitted by the house clerk to the President of the United States, each member of the United States Congress, and the presiding officers of each State’s legislature.

........just keep in mind what Gregg said

"This is not a time for partisanship," the New Hampshire senator said. "This is not a time when we should stand in our ideological corners and shout. This is a time to govern, and govern well."

Justx, it's way beyond partisanship. If we want this country to survive intact we're going to have to go back to the basics of government as outlined in that damn piece of paper.
