The National Defense Authorization Act of 2012: Change wording to not affect our Bill of Rights and.
This petition had 242 supporters
The National Defense Authorization Act is being called the most traitorous act ever witnessed in the Senate, and the language of the bill is cleverly designed to make you think it doesn’t apply to Americans, but toward the end of the bill it essentially says it can apply to Americans ”if we want it to.”
Basically, the US Military can hold you without cause. This basically can basically give the US Military total power over our country. The Bill of Rights was created to protect individuals like you and I from unlawful arrests, and the ability to prove our innocence. This bill removes that right from you and also allows enough gray area in it's wording so they can arrest you for anything - even if you think we are allowed to speak freely (Freedom of speech)
Shockingly, the U.S. Senate has voted to allow the military to detain American citizens indefinitely and without charge if they are said to be suspected of terrorism.
In November, the Senate failed to adopt an amendment to ban a provision of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that allows the U.S. Military to detain U.S. citizens without charge or trial indefinitely. We must act to protect our civil rights and the security of our country, which is greatly undermined by three sections of the NDAA:
One section explicitly authorizes the federal government to indefinitely imprison without charge or trial American citizens and others picked up inside and outside the United States – who are suspected of involvement with terrorism. A second section forces law enforcement officials to transfer a large category of terrorism suspects into military custody, against the advice of counter-terrorism professionals. A third section will further institute restrictions on the transfer of cleared Guantanamo detainees.
This bill, passed late last night (Dec 2011) in a 93-7 vote, declares the entire USA to be a ”battleground” upon which U.S. military forces can operate with impunity, overriding Posse Comitatus and granting the military the unchecked power to arrest, detain, interrogate and even assassinate U.S. citizens with impunity.
Please Read more about this and let everyone know. This has been kept under wraps with little publicity because individuals like you and I would persuade against it. It violates our freedom in the USA!
Please help make a difference and contact your representative of congress and senate. Please share this information to everyone!

"The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) was recently approved by an overwhelming majority of the Senate. It will place domestic terror investigations and interrogations into the hands of the military and which would open the door for trial-free, indefinite detention of anyone, including American citizens, so long as the government calls them terrorists. This law is diametrically opposed to the rights provided by the Constitution and opens the door to an effective police state. Forbes (of all magazines) describes it as the “greatest threat to liberties Americans face”. Here’s an article from The New American describing the law."
