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simply: "Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (Public Law 112–81) is hereby repealed."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 feel like the president is being unfair to the men and women who risk their lives each and everyday! The is no specific way of determining whether it is a safe zone or not! Just being out of your home country is dangerous because you never really know who's trying to do us harm! Deployments are no joke and people die everyday! This is completely unfair to every military member and they're families!

You are either in a hostile zone or you are not. There is not an in between. Stop taking away from our military. There are other places that can be cut.

Do not, I repeat, DO NOT take anything from the military that they already have been receiving. My husband was in the military for 7 years. As soon as you were elected Mr. President, we knew it was time to call it quits. I am so glad we did because you continually screw the military over time and again. Our military is underpaid and under appreciated.

Obama, you have never served so there for you have no idea of the dangers even in the safe zones. As it has been stated before if you keep taking away the things that our men and women are entitled to we will no longer have a military. These men and women put their lives on the line for ALL of US at any given time and they care enough about our United States to do so in order to protect her, at yet it seems as tho you are trying to tear it down. Maybe if you would stop taking ALL these pleasure trips we wouldn't have to make cutbacks. PLEASE leave our son's and daughters, husbands and wives, mothers and fathers alone and let them have the things they so rightly deserve. Because if it wasn't for them we wouldn't be a FREE United States!

I am appalled at the stupidity of our government! If you think these areas are so safe bring the troops home, ALL OF THEM! Then should things get dicey you can take their place. I am so ashamed of this country for the ignorant moves our so called leaders have made. Why don't you cut your pay and quit stepping on those who have by our ignorance allowed you to be in office! We as a country need to throw your asses out and start over! Mat God have mercy ! I am one upset MILITARY WIDOW!!!

The money that is received is a small compensation for the families that are giving up that spouse/son/daughter etc. for a year. My son in law went through 4 tours and is now getting out on a medical discharge for PTSD. I t catches up to you… My husband a vietnam veteran 100% PTSD. Diagnosed years after getting out of the military. He is now gone… Again it catches up with you. Obama has not served a day in his life.

Being away from family over the holidays and volunteering to serve my country during a time of war was something I volunteered for. We all did as service members. The more you continue to take away benefits we evidently deserve the less people will join. How was Hawaii mr. President? I spent it with my military family. Not my immediate family. You sure the budget cuts don't need to go elsewhere?

Only those who have served or their families know the dangers our family members are in everyday. Are you really trying to get rid of our military completely? Why don't you cut your pay and save this country millions that way.

The people passing these Laws and Acts are people that have never served in the military. Maybe if they decrease Congress' salary they can pay for the hazardous duty pay!

I have been deployed three times going on a fourth and this is wrong! Every soldier deployed is in a hostile area . Try going there yourself and stay awhile and then maybe you will see.

How can government expect Soldiers to do the things they have to do, constantly be away from family, make absolutely insulting wages while those protected by our military sit in their offices taking their pay, benefits, etc.?
