Update 12/2/11 - Solution to the Treason
UPDATE 11/29/11 - The Senate has COMMITTED TREASON - THEY ARE NOW THE TERRORIST AGAINST THE U.S. PEOPLE! They Voted FOR the Bill!!!
UPDATE 11/30/11 - Sign the Petition to IMPEACH ALL THE SENATORS WHO COMMITTED TREASON AGAINST THE PEOPLE AND U.S. CONSTITUTION!
This is it! This would take away any last freedoms we think we may have.
Edit to Add - 11/29/11 - Any Elected Official who votes for this Bill will be Committing TREASON! It passed through the Armed Services Committee of the Senate - with a 26-0 pass!
A Bill that allows the military to become the police and declares the U.S. as a battlefield, then the military can take and detain any U.S. citizen in the battlefield! They never have to charge you with anything nor give you a trial with this bill! In other words, if they don't like what you say or do, you can be picked up and held for the rest of your life without ever be given a reason nor trial!
If you enjoy what little freedoms we have left... then you need to let your elected official (not that they listen to the people) to vote NO on this bill!
It is coming up for vote on Monday or Tuesday - Carl Levin (D) and John McCain (R) created a bill behind closed doors that proclaims even the U.S. as a battlefield and U.S. citizens can be proclaimed enemy combatants!
This is so serious! This makes the military the Police and allows the military to come to your front door and arrest and lock you up! Remember the patriot act allows the U.S. to take people and never say they have them.
This would even go farther, it will be the military not the FBI, CIA etc to take U.S. citizens. It could be the military that could start shooting at us, since we would be in a battlefield!
Is it because the government doesn't trust the police to stop the Occupy Wall Street folks? Is it because they know the police may even join the OWS movement at some point?
The ACLU is telling everyone to contact they elected official and tell them to vote NO!
This is so outrageous!
We will be Egypt/Syria/Libya if this goes through! The military will be our police!
Lindsay Graham and Kelley Ayotte both (R) support the bill - they feel the U.S. is a battlefield now.
The Senate will be voting on a bill that will direct American military resources not at an enemy shooting at our military in a war zone, but at American citizens and other civilians far from any battlefield — even people in the United States itself.
The Senate is going to vote on whether Congress will give this president—and every future president — the power to order the military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians anywhere in the world.
The power is so broad that even U.S. citizens could be swept up by the military and the military could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United States itself.
The worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial provision is in S. 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, which will be on the Senate floor on Monday. The bill was drafted in secret by Sens. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) and passed in a closed-door committee meeting, without even a single hearing.
In support of this harmful bill, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) explained that the bill will “basically say in law for the first time that the homeland is part of the battlefield” and people can be imprisoned without charge or trial “American citizen or not.” Another supporter, Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) also declared that the bill is needed because “America is part of the battlefield.”

Do you enjoy the few freedoms we have left? Do you want the military to be able to come to your door step and take you away?
We could become Germany under the Nazis! Seriously... we could. They went to people's homes and took them without reason and locked them up and killed them. The U.S. is basically about to Okay doing the same thing here. The government will officially become a Nazi government if this bill goes through. Because it will allow them to do exactly as the Nazis did!
Go to this link - fill out your name etc... through the ACLU, it will go to your Senator saying - Do NOT vote for this.
