Repeal The NDAA Bill

Because of the most recent provision to the NDAA bill the U.S. is now able to detain and hold indefinitely on American soil anyone who is "suspected of terrorism" without being formally charged with anything and without due process or a trial.

This is completely unconstitutional and can so easily be abused by the government. REPEAL THIS NOW.

      The federal government has lost it's way. Who do they represent anyway? Who owns the companies that have purchased our senators and congressmen? China, Russia, Iran? We don't know. What seems apparent is federal government is attempting to expand its role to King/Dictator/Pope/God.

      Because its a nonsense bill. And hardly any of the PEOPLE of America want this.

      If we restrict liberty to attain security we will lose them both. Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.

      Every member of Congress who voted for this bill and President Obama who signed it broke their vow to uphold and protect our Constitution. Shame on all of them. They should either repeal this law or not be re-elected this fall: Republicans and Democrats alike.

      The legal system has tried "terrorists" in the past, so why try to circumvent that process now in what it is a Democracy. And what is the justification for jumping over due process in the first place? Because we are in a "war". A "war"? Which war? On Terror? And effectively merging the FBI and military into one legion to detain/police/terrorize not only the world but its own citizens? Is this the freedom that so many of our brave soldiers have fought and died for; so they could instill fear into their own brothers? And who is a terrorist under these nebulous terms? This Bill can't even begin to sound legitimate under the tenets of the Bill of Rights, but it passed anyway. It needs to be thrown out if America is to a free and proud Country again.
