Thus proving that the Senate is, actually, an enemy of the American way of life…Traitors to the people who they claim to represent.
Likely Obama will Veto it…….. Maybe? We can hope.
The fact is that this bill effectively guts the basic Constitutional protections that each of us currently has. And only ONE Republican dissenter. These people betrayed their oath that they took to “defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same;”. Sadly, they have become the enemies of the Constitution. And of the American people.
Ready to vote from the rooftops yet? ‘Cause the Senate has decided that you can be arrested and held indefinitely by the military….Not the police, the military. No courts, no trial, nothing. The Senate has decided to attempt to destroy your country. They have decided you are a slave, not a citizen: Subject to arrest and unlimited detention, with no trial. Yes, they claim it is all for Al-Queda, but READ THE BILL. It specifically gives the military or others the right to waive the requirements, or designate “National Security” as a reason to hold anyone….And no trial …With no definition of what those circumstances are. Will this be abused? I dunno. Could it be? Yes. Why open the door to circumvent the Constitution? Look, I am all for using every tool we have to detect, find, stop, and prosecute any terrorist. But not at the destruction of out way of life and the loss of the protections that the Constitution provides.
“They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
Think about that.
I expect the left (Carl Levin) to push for such legislation…..But the right? Mr. McCain: where are the principles you claim to have? What, really, do you stand for?
Someone should charge McCain (and Levin, and anyone who voted for this clusterfuck) with treason (the evidence is right there in the minutes!), and when he is (they are) convicted, he should be hanged as a lesson to others. Perhaps we were better served by having Obama elected rather than McCain. Let us not forget that McCain was the pick of the Republican establishment for our leader only a few years ago. Were the Republicans real Americans and Conservatives, they’d disavow him and kick him out of the party. But they won’t.
There is more to say, but I’ll not cross the line here and become the first to find out if the new law will be implemented. I’d hate to be labelled an Enemy of the State.
But Mr. McCain: I wouldn’t piss in your mouth if your teeth were on fire, you traitorous son of a bitch. You have written legislation which can be used to violate the rights of American citizens. You have undermined the Constitution.
And for that I cannot forgive you.
