NH House Votes to Prohibit Indefinite Detention in the Granite State

Indefinite detention - NH House votes against itHB 399, the New Hampshire Liberty Act, passed the NH House by a vote of 337-15.

Talk about bi-partisan support!  And yes, I am enthusiastic about that.  Back on February 18th, I challeneged New Hampshire Democrats to show us what they were made of when it came to the Federal Government, under the guidance of Mr. Obama,  giving itself the right to detain people indefinitely and they have spoken.

Dan Itse’s bill would make it a crime for anyone to aid or abet indefinite detention in the Granite State without due process and the Democrat majority House stood up to support that.

Now maybe it’s a no-brainer vote.  Perhaps it’s an easy one-off, a gimme.  Heck, Democrats voted to nullify National ID back in the day.  How hard could this be to support?

Well if it that were true why did 15 New Hampshire reps still vote against it (including one Republican)?

I’m sure we’ll find out.  They have officially made themselves infamous in the political-activist community and I expect that some folks will want some answers.  We will try to share those with you as they become available.

Until then, here they are.  The 15 House reps who would not vote to prevent indefinite detention without due process in the Granite State.
