Tell Congress: Support HR 3785

To Repeal Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act

Conservative Action Alerts had reported the dangers relating to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 in the last months of 2011 before it was signed into law by Barack Obama on New Years Eve.

Section 1021 of the NDAA contains language that endangers American citizens by nullifying essential liberties guaranteed by the Constitution -- rights to privacy and a fair trial.

HR 3785 -- which repeals section 1021 -- was introduced by Representative Ron Paul (R-TX) on January 18, 2012. A portion of Rep. Paul's statement is as follows:

"Section 1021 essentially codifies into law the very dubious claim of presidential authority under the 2001 Authorization for the Use of Military Force to indefinitely detain American citizens without access to legal representation or due process of law. Section 1021 provides for the possibility of the US military acting as a kind of police force on US soil, apprehending terror suspects – including Americans — and whisking them off to an undisclosed location indefinitely. No right to attorney, no right to trial, no day in court.”

HR 3785 reads simply: "Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (Public Law 112–81) is hereby repealed."

PLEASE STAND WITH CONSERVATIVE ACTION ALERTS, YOUR FELLOW AMERICANS, AND THE CONSTITUTION AND SIGN THIS PETITION AND SEND YOUR MESSAGES TO CONGRESS DEMANDING THEY PASS THIS BILL!

I am outraged that we would allow this to happen to the men and women that serve and protect our country. Take the presidents, congress and senate 6 figure salaries and see how that goes. They aren't protecting our country in anyway. They aren't worth the money we pay them. Give to the men and women that actually deserve it

I am outraged that you elected officials, and I don't care which side of the aisle you are on, should be ashamed of yourselves. That is in fact if you feel anything. These men fight so you can go to your cushy jobs, live a life of luxury and give yourself raises as you deem you are "owed". You would do better to forego your raises and give the to these men who are fighting in a war where they are getting shot at and killed every day. I'd call hazardous & down right dangerous. They deserve it not you.

Instead of cutting military pay and whatnot . They should of cut Obama care and programs that the government pays that are useless. Military soldiers should be pay more and pay less taxes due to the fact that's some of us(grunts) are in front of enemies lines.

With all of his recent actions with the hazardous pay and cutting retirees pay it really shows hiw much he cares about the men and women that sacrifice their safety and being away from their families to fight for our freedom! They keep this up and soldiers will slowly start getting out and they won't be able to get men and women to join the service either!
