The NDAA stands for the National Defense Authorization Act. It was signed into law by President Barack Obama on December 31, 2011.
It is meant to simply be a law setting the budget of the Department of Defense. President Obama also issued a signing statement on the bill to address national security and impose economic sanctions on Iran.
However, Section 1021 of this act allows the POTUS to detain ANYONE he wants, for WHATEVER REASON he wants, without a trial, without due process, indefinitely.
This bill passed the U.S. House of Representatives 283-136 and the U.S. Senate 86-13.
American USED to be a free country.
Here is a list of YOUR elected officials HERE IN OKLAHOMA that voted to APPROVE this travesty of liberty:
U.S. House (ALL 5 of them):
2 of the members of the U.S. House are up for re-election this year (Lucas and Cole) and one of them (Lankford) is trying to run for U.S. Senate. Jim Inhofe is also up for re-election this year.
These people need to be replaced! Anybody that would knowingly and willingly sign off on a bill that allows the government to detain American citizens without due process should not be allowed to represent us!
Make sure you do your homework before you decide who you are going to vote for. If they do not support the concept of liberty, they do not deserve YOUR support!
