National Defense Authorization Act

Posted by Troy on 18th January 2012 in Current Events, Political

Today they released a report saying that domestic terrorists tend to blame the government or speak out about the government and use the Internet to connect with like minded people.  Even though the NDAA allows people to be arrested by the military and stripped of their constitutional rights (Amendments 5 to 8), there’s no cause for concern.  Of course, this could be used to describe the Tea Party, Anonymous, and countless other groups as terrorists.  The politicians admit this, but say that they would never abuse this power.  My favorite part of the debate was Mitt Romney being booed when he said he would have signed the NDAA.  Here’s the thing, even if I trusted Obama with all my heart (sorry, I couldn’t stop laughing…I’m back now), there’s no way I would give FUTURE PRESIDENTS WHO I DO NOT KNOW this power.  Someone is going to abuse it.

Ron Paul has put a bill up to repeal the most egregious part of the NDAA.  And yet people call Ron Paul dangerous.  Which is more dangerous to you?  Iran with a nuclear weapon, or your government stripping your rights?  Which of these two is actually more likely?  Iran uses a nuclear weapon, or your government crushing all of our liberties?

Long Live the Constitution!
