The United States doesn't Exist.....

It is no longer the Untied States but the Federal democratic Republic of Amerika. The government in Washington, has gotten so involved in the daily economic life of the citizens, that it has for a long time, not been a truly capitalist country where resources are allowed to flow to where they make the most sense.

Luckily, there are still people out there, specifically in New Hampshire that realize this and the following legislation is interesting in recognizing more than just the economic meddling, here....
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.
As we may remember, powers not specifically given to to the US central government through the constitution and its amendments are specifically a right of the States. I broadly define the rights and responsibilities of the Federal Government as such:
1. defense
2. international diplomacy
3. system of law (such as civil rights)
4. monetary system
5. maintaining free and fair interstate commerce
Other than these responsibilities, the central government should not be involved in such things as;
1. retirement (Social Security promises to bury the nation in less than a decade)
2. healthcare (Unless the citizens want to have shitty medicine administered by completely incompetent bureaucrats)
3. regulation of industry or banks without the agreement of the States (What has the regulation of the banking industry achieved over the past 70 years? Probably has made the business more risky and fragile)
4. unfunded mandates foisted on the States (Absurdly designed programs that absorb large portions of local governments budgets will insure that these local governments will go insolvent)
