"...But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security..."

S.1867 - Senate Moves To Allow Military To Intern Americans Without Trial

The following is from This information is too important not to re-post:

The Senate is set to vote on a bill today that would define the whole of the United States as a “battlefield” and allow the U.S. Military to arrest American citizens in their own back yard without charge or trial.

“The Senate is going to vote on whether Congress will give this president—and every future president — the power to order the military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians anywhere in the world. The power is so broad that even U.S. citizens could be swept up by the military and the military could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United States itself,” writes Chris Anders of the ACLU Washington Legislative Office.

Under the ‘worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial’ provision of S.1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, which is set to be up for a vote on the Senate floor this week, the legislation will “basically say in law for the first time that the homeland is part of the battlefield,”


Conservablogger's Remarks:  

Leave it to Senate Democrats to push a bill that absolutely violates the constitution.  We are protected from illegal searches and seizures... so what they did was legalize all seizures.  This type law would allow the government to 'make examples' out of people who don't conform with the establishment.

That is, anyone who stands for individual liberty, limited government, personal responsibility could be prevented from holding rally's in defiance of the current political whim.

This is blatant overreaching that we must stand against.
