Obama Congress and the NDAA

Until the people change the way they vote, we will never have real change in government. An example of this is the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Part of the NDAA allows the government to detain US citizens with no access to due process.

In other words, the government can declare someone a terrorist, that someone could then be detained forever.

Why would a government that was supposed to be founded individual freedom wish to detain people without due process?

This case will go all the way to the supreme court. I am willing to bet the supreme court rules the government can detain people that are deemed a national security risk.

The supreme court allows the government to play its “national security” trump card from time to time. All the government has to do is say the information is part of national security.

What a lot of people do not understand is the government had the right to detain members of the general public under Executive Order 9066 signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 19, 1942. The United States Supreme Court upheld Executive Order 9066.

Instead of using an Executive Order to detain people, the government now has the full authority of a law passed by congress and signed by the president.

Blacks were detained without due process, as slaves.

Native Americans were detained without due process, their lands taken, and they were forced to relocate to reservations.

Military Prisons

Ask yourself, why is the White House demanding military prisons for Americans under the NDAA?

My personal opinion, its because the government is planning for something big – something like another World War.  To ensure national stability, the government wants to the right to imprison people at will, and for an undefined amount of time.

I have always doubted the FEMA death camp theory.  But with the passage of the NDAA, and increasing tensions with China and Iran, detainment camps are looking more and more feasible.

In 1918 Congress passed the Sedition Act as part of the Espionage Act of 1917. The Sedition Act prohibited people from speaking about the government or the war effort in a negative light, or interfered with the sale of government bonds.

Congress repealed the Sedition Act on December 13, 1920

Instead of waiting until another conflict arises, it appears congress wants to get everything in order before the next war.

Congress VS the People

There has been a lot of talk about how obama is a liberal, and how he wants to destroy the nation.

Was Thomas Jefferson a liberal because he owned slaves?

Was Andrew Jackson liberal for kicking native americans out of the southeast? Jackson even ignored a supreme court ruling.

Was Woodrow Wilson a liberal for signing the Sedition Act of 1918 into law?

Was FDR a liberal for detaining Japenese Americans?

Was George Bush a liberal for Guantanamo Bay? For some reason torture is ok when it comes to national security.

There has been a long history of human rights violations on part of the US government.

What obama is doing is nothing new.
