The room is packed! The people of New Hampshire have shown up to support our reps efforts to put forth a vote for New Hampshire independence by way of proper legal channels: A constitutional amendment. Many aren't aware that our NH constitution predates the United States and if it can authorize partaking it can take it away. However independence is the right of the people and any argument against independence is hypocritical given that the US independence from Great Britain was illegal.
We have about 80 supporters who showed up on fairly short notice during a weekday! Its great to see so many people take off work for this important day.
Let's put that as a syllogism:
US Independence from Great Britain was illegal.
X is an argument against NH independence.
Ergo: X is hypocritical.
I don't even know what fallacy to call that, other than the catchall non sequitur.
