This is not a joke.
From the ACLU:
The Senate is going to vote on whether Congress will give this president—and every future president — the power to order the military to pick up and imprison without charge or trial civilians anywhere in the world. Even Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) raised his concerns about the NDAA detention provisions during last night’s Republican debate. The power is so broad that even U.S. citizens could be swept up by the military and the military could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United States itself.
Read the full story here then please make sure you take action and contact the Senate and let them know that they are not allowed to destroy our Constitution. The bill is S 1867 and I would argue that Sens. McCain and Levin are clearly breaking their oath of office to uphold the Constitution and pose a far, far greater threat to the very meaning of American than anything any terrorists has ever done.
