RE: H.R.3785 To repeal section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012.
I am writing as your constituent in the 11th Congressional district of New Jersey. I support H.R.3785 – To repeal section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012., and am tracking it using OpenCongress.org, the free public resource website for government transparency and accountability.
Section 1021 is – in my view – the most flagrant violation of the 4th. Amendment of the Constitution of the United States. I therefore ask you to support the repeal of this section of the NDAA 2012.
You all can write easily to your representatives in Washington through http://www.opencongress.org
They have a standard letter, somewhat different from mine, which you can use. I can not stress enough how important this is although it may seem like a remote issue for most of you now. You may be inclined to think that arbitrary arrest and detention will only be used against people who do “bad things”. But a ruler with no lawful constraints can decide capriciously what a “bad thing” is. I have lived through that before; Cubans were arrested just to take a nice house away from them. It can happen anywhere. We are at the threshold of a very insidious tyrannical system and unless we nip it in the bud – by repealing this section of NDAA – fear will be a constant part of our lives and the lives of our children.
Do not think for a moment that the almost simultaneous appearance of this section of NDAA and SOPA/PIPA are a mere coincidence. The forces of Darkness are out to get us an unless we show that we won’t go quietly, they will succeed.
