We’re on the slippery slope to fascism. Exaggeration? You tell me:
The U.S. Supreme court has refused to hear a case arguing against Section 1021 (B) (2) of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which permits the military to seize U.S. citizens on U.S. soil and hold them indefinitely in detention centers without due process. Without due process means incommunicado – no contact with a lawyer – no phone call to family – no appearance before a judge. It also means ‘extraordinary rendition’ or more honestly known as “kidnapping”, is presently legal.
This decision by the Supreme Court from another planet, abrogates The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 which limits the power of the Federal Government in using military personnel to enforce the law. 98% of Americans polled are against this section of the NDAA. Implementing Section 1021 (B) (2) means, dear citizen, that you can be disappeared into a military run black prison site indefinitely. If this isn’t fascism then it is perilously close to it.
But we haven’t lost all of our rights under the Constitution – we have the right to keep our mouths shut and the freedom to remain fearfully anonymous.
