The right to Remonstrate is a protected right in the Constitution of New Hampshire,
Part I, Bill of Rights, Article XXXII;
“The people have a right in an Orderly and peaceable manner, to assemble and consult upon the common good, give instructions to their representatives; and to request of the legislative body, by way of petition or remonstrance, redress of the wrongs done them, and of the grievances they suffer.” June 2, 1784
The General Court has a Constitutional duty to assemble for redress of grievances, Article XXXI;
“The legislature ought frequently to assemble for the redress of grievances, for correcting, strengthening and confirming the laws, and for making new ones, as the common good may require.” June 2, 1784
(Amended 1792 generally rewording sentence and omitting "for correcting, strengthening and confirming the laws.")
The Remonstrance is a Constitutional Right, exercised to protest any encroachment on the rights of the people, or, any usurpations of power by design, or inattention to the Laws of the Land. The Remonstrance is an instrument, a protective tool, and it is to be used as a remedy to protest any government actions which are repugnant or contrary to the Constitution of New Hampshire, or, the Constitution for the United States of America, or, the laws written pursuant thereof.
I would argue that the below acts of our NH legislatures are just a few actions that have encroached on our rights and should therefore be remonstrated by the citizens:
1. House Voted week of March 15, 2020:
HB 1279 - Relative to the terms resident, inhabitant, residence, and residency.
HB 1653 - Relative to domicile, residency, voter registration, and investigation of voter verification letters.
HB 1672 - Allowing voters to vote by absentee ballot.
The term “resident” is not referenced anywhere in Article XI of the state constitution or anywhere in the Bill of Rights. Resident means a person living somewhere permanently or on a long-term basis; for example a college student, not necessarily a Citizen of the State of NH.
2. Senate Hearing Scheduled March 17, 2020 has been postponed.
HEALTH & HUMAN SERVICES
SB507 - Relative to prescription medication for treatment or prevention of communicable disease.
No matter where you go for any healthcare, a hospital, medical office, lab, pharmacy etc, any healthcare worker (doctor, nurse, EMT, pharmacist) whether they know your history or not, is authorized “by Standing order” to inject you with vaccines/biologicals and they will not be held liable for anything. This bill is using language that takes away every right we have to protect ourselves against complete medical tyranny. Where in the state constitution is this authority given to the legislatures? Is it a conflict of interest for doctors in the senate to push vaccine bills?
3. Bill was voted Inexpedient to Legislate during the 2019 session but was then voted by the senate majority to be "slipped" into the state budget as part of the "bipartisan" budget deal.
SB306 - Establishing the Housing Appeals Board
This bill authorizes state appointed bureaucrats to potentially overrule decisions made at the local municipally ELECTED Planning Board & Zoning Board of Appeals. This appeals board creates more state suffocation and takes power away at the local municipal level. One size fits all policies DO NOT fit the NH advantage. Concord does not know better than our locally elected officials & this bill creates unnecessary government red tape, in my view. Where in the state constitution is this authority given to the legislatures? This bill is now law, as Chapter 679 in the NH Planning Land Use Regulation 2019-2020 Edition.

More Remonstrances and Less Fraud & Lawyers in Concord are mandated for sustainability.
