Obama Calls For Indefinite Preventive Detention Without Trial

leave a comment »

Salon.com: Only a Constitutional lawyer would have to balls to suggest that his proposed “Indefinite Preventive Detention Without Trial” is even remotely constitutional no matter how he and Congress plan to word it.

And don’t be fooled by this silly notion that it’s only for the GITMO terrorists. The US Patriot Act and other terrorist act prompted legislationhas put thousands of “regular” Americans behind bars for the very same nebulous threats that President Obama is claiming to be acting on.

Legislation like:

If passed this legislation will make it possible for ANY law enforcement agency and/or offiicial to claim you are a significant “future” threat and hold you without cause or charge indefinitely.

That doesn’t sound like a properly functioning democracy to me! And it sure as hell doesn’t sound like the HOPE and CHANGE Mr. Obama promised for nearly two years leading up to his election win.
