National Defense Authorization Act

National Defense Authorization Act

“The only provision from which U.S. citizens are exempted here is the“requirement” of military detention,” Greenwald writes. “For foreign nationals accused of being members of Al Qaeda, military detention is mandatory; for U.S. citizens, it is optional. This section does not exempt U.S citizens from the presidential power of military detention: only from the requirement of military detention.”(1)

This is what happens when Americans fall asleep and follow their government with blinders on. The laws that were passed during the Bush administration began what is becoming the eradication of the Constitution and The Bill of Rights. It is the responsibility of the people to ALWAYS keep their government in-check, making sure that they are following both the laws of the land, and the will of the people.. in not doing so, we the people, are losing the most valuable rights that this country has. The very laws that this country was based upon are being trashed in the name of fear, that's how it begins people.

More and more people are completely losing faith that ANY real number of politicians will be elected to office that will truely be there to enforce the will of the people, and bring this country to the greatness that she was always meant to be. With the passage of this law, it is my hope that people will be awakened to their civic responsibilities, and the absolute importance to NEVER follow their government blindly. I believe that MORE protest need to be staged so that people may make their views known, and be more assured that our government knows that THEY WORK FOR US, and that we.. the people of the United States, will not be forced into a communist nation as other countries in the past have been.

*just my views*

NDAA is a horrible a law, Obama signed it on New Years Eve, this is what Amnesty International has to say about it: "Provisions that were snuck into the bill with little notice from mainstream media could spell indefinite detention without a hearing, keep Guantanamo open, and hinder fair trials."
