The United States is now a battlefield, not because of any invading army, foreign enemy, or civil insurrection, but by an act of Congress. In a shameful, disgraceful bipartisan vote on the 220th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights, Congress passed a bill that essentially eviscerates the rights guaranteed in that hallowed document and guts the rule of law in our nation. Why should we be surprised? James Madison warned, “No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.” ...
The bill declares the entire world — even the United States — a battlefield and turns American citizens into mere subjects who can be jailed indefinitely, or killed simply on the order of the president. It allows the president to use the U.S. Armed Forces to detain anyone indefinitely, even American citizens on American soil, who he and he alone determines may be a terrorist. No evidence, no trial, no lawyers. Just shoot them or send them to the Bastille!
