NHexit Debate – Full Video

Tue, 2021-11-09 17:18 +0000

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

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

Wed, 2021-09-29 16:13 +0000

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

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.

NH State Reps to File Constitutional Amendment to Declare Independence from U.S.

Fri, 2021-09-10 01:32 +0000

State Reps Mike Sylvia & Matt Santonastaso

New Hampshire state representatives Mike Sylvia and Matt Santonastaso are teaming up to file a bill which, if passed, would put the following proposed constitutional amendment on the 2022 ballot:

“Are you in favor of amending the first part of the New Hampshire Constitution by inserting, after article 7, a new article to read as follows:

 

[Art.] 7-a. [Independent Nation.] New Hampshire declares itself as independent from the United States and peaceably, immediately proceeds as a sovereign nation. All other references to the United States in this constitution and state statutes and regulations are nullified.”

In order to get on the ballot, it must pass both the NH house and senate by over 60%. If it makes it to the ballot, then to pass it must receive over 2/3rds of the vote. If enough people vote for it, it will go into effect immediately and New Hampshire will be free again.

If you’d like to show your support, you can sign an online petition here and help in a variety of different ways.

Once upon a time, the people of New Hampshire declared independence from a tyrant in Britain.  It’s long past time to declare independence from the tyrants in Washington DC.  Our relationship is abusive and DC is the abuser.  It’s time to break up and go our own way.  The way of freedom.  Live free or die.  Death is not the worst of evils.

This website will enable you to help us make the vision of New Hampshire as an independent nation a reality.

We’re just starting with the website, so please check back for tools you can use to spread the word and express yourself to the media, your neighbors, and NH reps and senators on this issue.

The Manchester Free Press aims to bring together in one place everything that you need to know about what’s happening in the Free State of New Hampshire.

As of August 2021, we are currently in the process of removing dead links and feeds, and updating the site with newer ones.
