Lots of hot, pro-liberty bills in NH legislature
« on: February 06, 2011, 12:40:58 pm »

There are so many hot, pro-liberty bills in the NH legislature, I'm having a hard time keeping up with them all.
I thought I'd just post a sample here so people not in NH can get some kind of a sense of what's brewing, now that we have more than a dozen FSPers in the NH House of Representatives!

It's a long list :D -- totally worth your time to scan thru & click for details on items that look interesting to you.

Big thanks to all the FSPers in NH who are helping push these bills forward!!!

make Kindergarten optional
Why is this important?
exempts goods and services in NH from federal law & regulation
exempts firearms, etc., made in NH from federal law & regulation
Normally federal laws override state so I assume the local police will go against the Feds when they try to inforce this.
right to use deadly force in self defense, anywhere you have a right to be
I am guessing the generic burglery and tresspassing don't count.
And what if the owner attacks the interloper first?
They may be on property illegally but they haven't initiated violence.

Constitutional Amendment:  the state shall not abridge the responsibility of parents for the health, education, and welfare of their children.
The problem with stuff like this is that that would allow the parents to teach their kids anything;
Nazism and nudity are good; oh and all NH legislators and FSPers should be shot on sight.
Can laws preven them from teaching them from doing illegal things?
It also ignore that the kids are people too and not just wards of their parents.

makes motor vehicle inspections biennial, instead of the current annual
Why is this important?
prohibit TSA groping/scanners (actually makes those punishable as a sexual assault!)
I actually like this. I may not mind driving, from NY, to NH just to fly.
Then I can go through security with at most "theater" from before 9/11.
I wouldn't even mind if the metal detectors were gone as well.
Would this law allow people to arrive at the airport 10 minutes or whenever before the flight launches instead of 1 hour, or if you are lucky 30 min.?

Kindergarten is really something recent... I went to private... and I'm not sure of the data on the value of education/social development.

Not against the Feds... they just will not assist. A court hearing will determine whether federal authorities overstepped their authority thus being found in violation of the State statute.

The 'Stand Your Ground' doctrine is a tougher one in that both parties might presume themselves to be in the 'right'.

The problem with the constitutional parental amendment... is my parents never stop being my parents.
It does create a dichotomy with Part First Article One... attempting to make me chattel.

Biennial inspections just lower the constraints on vehicle owners time.

The TSA is actually harder... in that its federal, and travellers leaving Manchester are most likely going to cross State borders at a minimum.

Kindergarten, property rights and car inspections? Don't care about that, but would drive across three states to avoid TSA scanners?


Other than the fact inspections and kindergarten cost the taxpayer money, the freedom to raise and educate your own kids and to travel are some ofthe most fundemtal freedoms. Pat me down so planes dont blow up, who cares. But take away my  ability to drive because of emissions or a cracked tail light, go f*ck yourself.

Not sure there will be savings on either the kindergarten or inspections... as that will have to do with local authorization and market pricing. Its only the State budget that is affected... and the bill adjusts to keep that revenue intact.
And you will still get a DE tag for a cracked taillight, or mechanical emissions situation... that's not being changed.

Of course, under the constitutional parental rights bill... it will be up to your mommy and daddy whether you could drive.

also many of these might not be important to YOU
but they are important to other people.
and those people will help you with bills that ARE important to YOU.

Many are also the start of the rollback of the nanny state.....baby steps...and it might take some time to get them all.

I definately wouldn't fly with these things so if I would fly it would only be without them.
So yes, I would drive across 3 states to fly.
Plues patting down won't affect the blowing up of planes.
Luckely the incompetence(sp) of the so-called underwear bomber for not succeeding was worse than the incompetence of the TSA scanners not preventing him from getting on the plane.

The system is fallible to be sure... but I'm not sure that NH can enact a bill that involves interstate commerce.

I think the best method for that would be broad citizen petition to their congressional delegation.

HB 474 - relative to freedom of choice on whether to join a labor union.
http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/legislation/2011/HB0474.html

This is the Right To Work bill. If you support allowing individuals the right to be able to work without having to join a union or pay union fees, please email the Labor Committee at ~HouseLaborIndustrialandRehabilitativeServices@leg.state.nh.us

It should come out of committee OTP - but a few more emails encouraging them to do so can't hurt.

This bill will be exec'ed tomorrow, 2/8.

Why is this important?

It increases freedom

exempts goods and services in NH from federal law & regulation
exempts firearms, etc., made in NH from federal law & regulation
Normally federal laws override state so I assume the local police will go against the Feds when they try to inforce this.

The Federal Constitution protects the states in this instance, the way the law is written.  Since these services only effect things within the state.  On top of that Federal employees who try to enforce the laws in NH can go to jail for up to two years.

right to use deadly force in self defense, anywhere you have a right to be
I am guessing the generic burglery and tresspassing don't count.

They may be on property illegally but they haven't initiated violence.


"Self Defense"  you can't just blow someone away because you don't like them.  I don't think any judge is that dumb.

Constitutional Amendment:  the state shall not abridge the responsibility of parents for the health, education, and welfare of their children.
The problem with stuff like this is that that would allow the parents to teach their kids anything;
Nazism and nudity are good; oh and all NH legislators and FSPers should be shot on sight.
Can laws preven them from teaching them from doing illegal things?
It also ignore that the kids are people too and not just wards of their parents.


Yeah so,  you think restricting what parents can say to their children is a good thing?  The "State" getting involved in parenting is almost always a bad thing and usually produces "statist drones."

makes motor vehicle inspections biennial, instead of the current annual
Why is this important?

This is big for me,  annoying nanny state laws like inspections really irritate me.  Wish they'd repeal inspections altogether.

Ironically this is where the Federal government does have jurisdiction and will enforce it over the state.  Very near 100% of all commercial flights originating from NH are going somewhere outside of NH.


Overall I like all these bills, but Lynch will veto 90% of them.  The only way to pass them is for the Republicans to all band together to override the veto, which won't happen for all of them.  It irritates me that people who also frequent this forum voted for Lynch based solely on the Gay Marriage law.  On most things Lynch is bigger government and he's going to show what kind of person he is with his veto pen.

I don't think we'll find that to be the case. Lynch is a smarter political operator than that.
