Re: the ‘Indefinite Detention’ Bill

I've deliberately avoided talking about the utterly treasonous Section 1031 of the National Defense Authorization Act, which presumes to do away with the 5th amendment -- you know, the one that guarantees "No person shall be [...] deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law ..." because:
a) the Patriot Act, the attacks on Habeas Corpus, and the recent assassination of American al Awlaki already presume to do this, so why ratchet up the fear by screaming about yet another totally illegal and therefore illegitimate law?
b) the bill hasn't actually become "law" yet, Obama said he was going to veto it.

Well, I guess now, after all but seven senators passed the bill, it looks like they've got more than enough votes for a congressional override. And we should know who these traitors are. Here's a page that gives the roll call of both House and Senate versions of the bill, plus a revealing interview with Paul Craig Roberts on the subject.

Personally, I don't think in terms of "we've been stripped of all our rights today ..." -- the Constitution trumps any law a bunch of traitors come up with. And the Declaration of Independence says we have been endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights, among which are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. So don't fear, trust in God, and hold these traitors accountable for their blatant disregard for their oath of office and the Constitution.

This is going to come to a head, and it won't be pretty. But if you're with our Creator, you know you're on the winning side.
