National Defense Authorization Act – The Constitution Nullified with a Pen Swipe
Recently Congress passed a bill called The National Defense Authorization Act – HR 1540. It would be better described if they called it Americas Police State Act. I believe this currently the single most important issue facing the American people. It changes the course of history and wipes out much of what it means to be an American (and our Constitution) without even raising a weapon. They will accomplish with a pen what others have failed to do with war.
What is particularly frustrating is that the main stream media has had virtually no coverage or mention of the Act, almost a total blackout. In my opinion this is the most critical and pivotal issue we have faced in our lifetime. It is nothing less than nullification of the constitution, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 14th amendments. Whats more the language in the Act was written to purposely hide and mislead the public about the authority it would give to the Government. In one section they say it won’t apply to American Citizens only to add in another that it can be. Essentially the Act allows Government to label someone a terrorist or terrorist sympathizer which enables them to illegally wire tap you, to literally go to your home pick you up and place you in detention without right to trial, without the ability to contact a lawyer, without your family having access to where you are. You can be shipped out of the country to Guantanamo or some other such place and never be heard from again. Now I know what you are likely thinking, something is wrong here, this can’t be accurate reporting. You are assuming that I must be missing something, that I’m exaggerating. Well I don’t blame you that’s what I thought when I first heard about this. I’m a skeptic, I spent considerable amount of time investigating, including downloading the actual act. Believe me it’s true and what can be considered reason to suspect you a possible terrorist is equally scary. Things like missing fingers on your hand, storing more than 7 days of food, having guns, having waterproof ammunition are just a few of the things that can make you a suspect and subject to wiretapping, computer hacking, and seizure.
Please write your Congressmen today and let them know that this is unacceptable! I have provide a link that makes it very easy to contact all your representatives at one time.
