Another outragous anti terrorism bill
The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed HR 1955 titled the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007.
This bill is one of the most blatant attacks against the Constitution yet and actually defines thought crimes as homegrown terrorism.
It states in the first subsection that in general the efforts to defeat thought crime shall not violate the constitutional rights, civil rights and
civil liberties of the United States citizens and lawful permanent residents. How does this protect constitutional rights if they use vague language
such as in general that prefaces the statement? This means that the Department of Homeland Security does not have to abide by the Constitution in
their attempts to prevent so called homegrown terrorism.
This bill is completely insane. It literally allows the government to define any and all crimes including thought crime as violent radicalization and
homegrown terrorism. Obviously, this legislation is unconstitutional on a number of levels and it is clear that all 404 representatives who voted in
favor of this bill are traitors and should be removed from office immediately. The treason spans both political parties and it shows us all that there
is no difference between them. The bill will go on to the Senate and will likely be passed and signed into the law by George W. Bush. Considering that
draconian legislation like the Patriot Act and the Military Commissions Act have already been passed, there seems little question that this one will
get passed as well. This is more proof that our country has been completely sold out by a group of traitors at all levels of
government.(visit the link for the full news article)
