You don't seem to understand, all of the pieces of the puzzle are coming together. The National Defense Authorization Act passed the Senate and is on
it's way to become law. It allows the military
imprison American citizens without a trial or charge
This violates the 5th Amendment, which states that "no person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law". The 6th
Amendment, which guarantees the right to a speedy and public trial, and the 7th Amendment, which guarantees the right to a trial by jury.
If a person is so much as accused of being associated with "terrorism", the military can pick them up and imprison them. This isn't a conspiracy
theory, this is a FACT! This is reality! Do you know what the qualifications for terrorism are nowadays? Basically every single American citizen
qualifies. If you have 7 days of food, you're a suspected terrorist. If you make numerous refrences to the Constitution, you're a suspected terrorist.
If you have weapons and ammunition, you're a suspected terrorist. If you pay for things in cash, you're a suspected terrorist.
Do you really think the NDAA is going to be used to protect us? The government is corrupt and it's been hijacked! This isn't a secret, it's staring us
in the faces! Count how many big bankers have been appointed to positions of power in the government. Do you think these corrupt people who lie to go
to war, crash the economy and don't get in trouble, and violate the Constitution carelessly aren't going to use this against the American people?
They are cracking down, and they have the power to throw anybody who stands in their way or even questions them into prison.
