This week is the hearing for CACR32. If approved, it would set the stage for a vote to allow New Hampshire peaceably declare independence from the United States and proceed as a sovereign nation.
The NHEXIT movement has been around for years though not always by that name. As early as 2008, when I began this strange hobby of mine, there were political activists whose mission was to find a way for NH to succeed from the union.
Federal oversight has overstepped so often, and in so many ways, it would take years to count them. Our current regime has embraced medical tyranny, public health despotism, unhindered migration (including drugs, disease, and human trafficking), fiscal insolvency, and the trampling of many on the way to all of the natural rights our constitutions were crafted to protect.
It has been reduced to an abusive relationship enabled by countless acts by previous “stewards” of the American experiment in every political party. At the local, state, and federal levels.
It is not difficult to imagine why such a movement would not arise.
It did, it has, and it’s here, and CACR32 is the latest vehicle in pursuit of this dream. A sovereign nation-state of New Hampshire.
I won’t estimate the odds of success at the legislative or executive levels of the process. It seems unlikely, as does a popular vote in favor. The same sort that got us into this mess also hobbled the Granite State with federal handouts. That’s as good an excuse as any to get the deed done, but the climb is steep, and the rewards unlikely to appeal to the average voter.
That said, it is no reason not to try for reasons, not the least of which are that it will piss off the Left.
They are already running campaign messaging targeting any Republican who supports CACR32 or, more generally, succession. It almost makes me more inclined to embrace the idea.
