With the recent passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), a new tool added to Bushe’s Patriot Act. to limited our Freedom. President signed this bill into law with what he referred to as “reservations”. If somehow you missed the memo, the government can now throw you or anyone else into prison just because someone high enough up the totem pole believes you might be a threat.
To do so they will label it terrorism but really it could apply to just about anything because no longer do they need justify your detention to anyone, not even the courts. No phone call to your lawyer, no bail, no court date, just prison for as long as they want. We’re talking about The Count of Monte Cristo style prison with no hope for escape, hard to believe? Basically, it’s the Patriot Act being codified one step at a time. What’s next, remember we did not always pay income tax, the government said it was only temporary.
Until we collectively decide that it’s not going to be business as usual we will watch what America stood for continue to vaporize before our eyes. Americans can no longer afford to sit by as our country slides into full on 21st century style fascism where corporate interests rule and the citizens of the U.S. are less than an after thought. Our government seems to consider us not only a nuisance when exercising our 1st Amendment rights but now obviously a danger. Who are these elected officials to just wipe out whole sections of the Constitution in the name of control but wrapped in the cloak of safety? It is time to do your duty as a citizen and contact your representatives on these issues of constitutional rights or we truly will have none. We’re almost there now.
