Over the past decade our freedoms have been taken away one after the other. Lately it seems the process is being fast tracked. Beginning January 2012 American citizens can now be subject to indefinite detention without due process (NDAA). Say goodbye to the fourth amendment:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
At 7:03pm ET on Tuesday, 28 February 2012, our 112th Congress violated another covenant with the American people by voting 399 to 3 in favor of H.R. 347, a bill which would make it a felony to participate in many forms of protest. It breezed through the Senate with unanimous consent and now lacks only President Barack Obama’s signature to become law. The three patriots who voted Nay were Paul Broun (R-GA-10), Justin Amash (R-MI-3) and Ron Paul (R-TX-14). If this receives the President’s stamp of approval, there goes a good portion of the first amendment:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
This election cycle it is more urgent than ever to elect representatives who you can be sure will stand up for American freedoms and restore the constitution! Time is running out.
