Well I do not believe in creating a three tiered justice system, that is a recipe for tyranny and can be used as a TOOL of such a government.
Personally, for me it has nothing to do with correctness.
If you guys fear Obama's intentions then I suggest you do not offer him or ANY FUTURE PRESIDENT a vehicle to crackdown on whom ever they would like,
in secret, BY LAW with no recourse.
There is already a frame work
a (A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are
a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or
of any State;
Now if you had to explain to me what the part "(A)" above meant what would you say???
What does "acts" mean to you?
What does "dangerous" mean to you?
"Violation of (WHAT/WHICH) criminal laws of the United States or of any State" ?
Do you see the quandary?
Now another example:
--`(B) appear to be intended--
Now the word "appear" --
Could the word "assume" be a possible synonym for appear in this context ?
(ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion
What does "intimidation" mean to you?
More importantly what does it mean to someone else or the government?
Now do the same with "coercion"...
If the US is headed for total chaos and the citizenry becomes "ANGRY" how might these
words be interpreted?
What if you are "suspected terrorist" and judged by a judicial body who is working hand in hand with possible "Fascist government entities"???
Might a government under siege use the full extent and widest interpretation of the law to quell any citizen decent?
Unfortunately these few lines hold a lot of weight and in the wrong hands could effectively silence our Democracy and any protest that may result!
` (C) occur primarily within the territorial
jurisdiction of the United States.''.
Oh,,, but this last line is very clear and not vague at all- ANYWHERE
