It's Time to Wake Up America

The idea that a person cannot be held without charge or detained indefinitely without trial goes back to the Magna Carta nearly 800 years ago. The US Congress has done away with those rights without even holding a hearing. The National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 would allow for the indefinite military detention without charge of United States citizens and lawful immigrants in America destroying the Constitutional rights of Habeas Corpus and Due Process.

Outrage is spreading, especially among human rights groups, from coast to coast as 'The Liar Obama' signed off on the dastardly deal. But it appears a huge portion of the American people in their fear of foreign enemies have forgotten who they are and have abandoned their values of liberty and justice. "People who are willing to sacrifice liberty for security end up with neither" -Benjamin Franklin

It's time to Wake Up America. These are the rights and freedoms that once made the US, the country i grew up in, a proud, free and unique place as well as the 'shining city on the hill' in the world's eyes. It's all disappearing in the tsunami of fear flooding the US.

"As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression.
In both instances, there's a twilight where everything remains
seemingly unchanged, and it is in such twilight that we
must be aware of change in the air, however slight,
lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness."
- Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas
