Rand Paul Blocks Attempt to Sneak Through Dangerous
On Thursday night, Senator Rand Paul blocked passage of an amendment that would have allowed the government to indefinitely detain American
citizens until Congress declares the War on Terror to be over. These Americans would be detained even if they were tried and found not guilty.
I'll repeat : they would have kept you in jail FOREVER even if FOUND NOT GUILTY (if you ever had a trial to begin with).
And the vote :
An attempt was made to pass Amendment No. 1274 to the National Defense Authorization Act (S. 1867) by voice vote, but Senator Paul’s objection
and request for a roll call vote ultimately led to the bill’s defeat by a final vote of 41-59.
It was defeated by ONE VOTE. ONE VOTE. I mean, that's basic. That's easy to understand. Anyone can see that this amendment is obviously
unconstitutional. Yet it still nearly passed. Anyone still denying that congress has declared war on the American people, you can't deny anymore.
Those 59 people are the following :
roll call vote
And ``only`` 59 voted for it because it was a roll call vote. I'm sure if it had been just a voice vote, as it would have been if Rand Paul hadn't
force that, it would have passed.
When the majority 50%+ of senators vote for something that basic and treasonous, you don't need a law degree to know that they are up to no good.
My point is this... congress isn't incompetent or ignorant or sellouts, they are actively going fascist. Openly. Without any remorse. Plain and
Now you know why the MSM worked so hard trying to discredit Rand Paul so he wouldn't be elected...
In other news, the whole bill, S.1867, still passed at 93-7 in the senate... so even if the previous amendment was defeated, the whole stinking bill
