Your Rights are Being Taken Away

This is sad week for the United States of America. The National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 is going to give the rights to the government that allow for US Citizens to be rounded up and carted off to camps without due process! Yup, that's right no more right to an attorney, no more right to remain silent. Gone!

The NDAA was passed and signed by our President. We need contact the White House and demand change. The language in this document strikes at the heart of our Bill of Rights. It takes away our right for a fair trial. Slowly our nation is being taken over and our freedoms are dwindling away. I urge each of my readers to please educate yourself on this as well as some of the other changes that are being made to our rights. They are dropping us in a pot of water and slowly turning up the heat. We need to take action.

A petition has been started on the White House Website that you can sign to ask for this to be vetoed. I've signed them all, but they've been signed now. What can we do? You can also contact the White House directly here.

As defined by this legislation anyone that quotes the Constitution, the Bill of Rights or speaks out against oppressive legislation is in fact a terrorist and can be imprisoned without due process.

Wow, that is sad. A few days ago the BF and I were talking about all the change that has happened in the Middle East, and he noted how, while the Eastern tyrannies are ending, "modern" and "progressive" Western countries are trying to take rights away from their people. No more freedom of speech (or internet typing), war on demonstrations (OWS, or S21 in Germany (where one guy's eyes were shot out using a water cannon)), ... - all while claiming to do it "for the greater good". At least we can still educate ourselves on all this stuff and try to make a change for the better.
