Stop the NDAA: Demand a Veto!

20 Dec

Watch the video. Hit the “read more” button. learn what YOU can do to stop this Un-Constitutional Legislation!!!

Last week, Congress gave final approval to the National  Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), despite the fact that it allows the president  to put “any person who has committed a belligerent act” in military detention.  By giving Obama and any future president the power to imprison anyone indefinitely  and without trial on the basis

Odd: I never noticed the resemblance until now.

of accusation—even without proof—of a  “belligerent act,” the NDAA is a direct assault on the Bill of Rights.

President Obama had previously said he would veto the bill,  but last Wednesday he backpedaled. He hasn’t yet signed the bill, though, so  there’s still time for us to act.

Call the White House  at (202) 456-1414 and demand that President Obama veto the NDAA.

Your actions have already made a real difference. Only seven  senators opposed the NDAA in a vote December 1, but after dozens of actions  across the country, the number of Senators opposing the bill nearly doubled to  13 by late last week.

So hit the phones  today and tell the president to veto indefinite detention.

President Obama has until December 26 to either sign or veto  the bill, but he hasn’t taken any action yet. Time

This is what you are stopping!

is running out, but you can  still make a difference.

Defend the  Constitution. Call (202) 456-1414 now and tell President Obama that We the  People are counting on him to veto this un-American law.

    The NDAA only goes to further stifle our Constitutional Rights without the approval of the Americans, just as the Patriot Act was adopted WITHOUT public approval or vote just weeks after the events of 9/11. A mere 3 criminal charges of terrorism a year are attributed to this act, which is mainly used for no-knock raids leading to drug-related arrests without proper cause for search and seizure. The laws are simply a means to spy on our own citizens and to detain and torture dissidents without trial or a right to council. You can read much more about living in this Orwellian society of fear and see my visual response to these measures on my artist’s blog at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/09/living-in-society-of-fear-ten-years.html
