The New Hampshire Resolution

Thomas Jefferson and James Madison memorably wrote the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions in 1797-1798 as a protest against the Alien & Sedition Acts. The Resolutions, however, state clearly the Founders' original understanding of the sovereignty of the States, and their right to secede in the event that the Federal Government failed to respect the Constitution of the United States.

The House of Representatives of the General Court of New Hampshire has introduced in the current session House Concurrent Resolution 6, which reads very much like the resolutions Messrs. Jefferson and Madison wrote over 200 years ago.

We'll keep you posted on its progress.
