What for me is the Tyranny Law from now on refers to the indefinite detention clause of the National Defense Authorization Act 2012, NDAA. It gives the president the power to arrest any American, anywhere, for any length of time, without any charge or due process. The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States has been effectively deleted, unless the detention clause is found to be unconstitutional by the U.S Supreme Court.
What is my level of confidence that the U.S. Supreme Court will rule in that manner? Very low. But it is our civic duty to oppose an illegal arrest. An illegal arrest is tantamount to kidnapping. The Indefinite Detention Clause in the NDAA 2012 bears similarity in concept to the German Enabling Laws, promulgated after the Reichstag’s fire, which served as basis for Hitler’ dictatorship.
I am endorsing Ron Paul not because I agree with him in many things but because I agree with him in the most important things. Respect for the Constitution of the United States is at the top of that list.
How dark this sunny morning is.
