[Peninsula-Patriots] National Defense Authorization Act (HR 1540)

The following is a message I sent to our congressmen through the John Birch Society. If you want to contact them also, you may  use this message as a guide. The National Defense Authorization Act (Hr 1540) is one of the most anti-constitutional pieces of legislation ever passed. Think about this. The president is authorized to identify who he considers potential domestic terrorists. Some already identified by the Homeland Security are returning veterans, people with more than 7 days of emergency food, Christians, Tea Party activist, NRA members and on and on. I thought this was impossible in America but I was wrong.

The content of your message is as follows:

Dear [The message(s) you sent had each recipient's name here]: 

Hidden deep inside the conference report (final version) of the National Defense Authorization Act (H.R. 1540) that was passed by the House on December 14 and the Senate on December 15, and signed by President Obama on December 31, there is still an unconstitutional portion that needs to be stripped out. It is the concept of "indefinite detention" of American citizens, the details of which are contained in Section 1021 of this bill. Indefinite detention without due process leaves citizens without the legal protection of the Constitution and strikes at the heart of the essence of U.S. law. It is positively shameful that any elected representative would even consider voting for such an assault on so sacred a fundamental value as the right to due process. I completely reject the notion that indefinite detention of American citizens without due process is necessary for national security, and so should you, as a sworn defender of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and my elected representative. Please cosponsor and otherwise help pass Rep. Landry's H.R. 3676 in both the House and Senate, Rep. Garamendi's H.R. 3702 (companion bill to S. 2003) in the House, and Senator Feinstein's S. 2003 in the Senate to restore all the rights of due process to American citizens, including preventing the indefinite detention of American citizens without charge or trial.
