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simply: "Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (Public Law 112–81) is hereby repealed."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

What if we cut the pay for legislators and the presidential cabinet? I don't see that they are getting any less pay.

I have always stood by President Obama's side by sticking up for him when no one else would. I think his decisions are made with the desire to help American citizens, but I just couldn't figure this one out. I understand we need cutbacks to help bring us out of the debt we're in, but taking it from the men and women who deserve it and need it most does not seem like the best plan. If we worked with the affluent population and asked them to help our nation, I think America would be more understanding when the less well-off had to give up their pay too. I wish that the "big guns" of corporations would give more tha take. I wish they understood that millions are plenty and minimum wage isn't enough. I wish they cared more about other's living situations. I know someday we'll reduce inequality, I know that as a future social worker (I graduate this spring) I will fight for it every morning I wake up and I'll dream about it every night after I fall asleep.

Mr.Presedent why not take your pay away because you sit behind a desk and do NOT defend our country? Our Military gets paid very very little as it is and you want to take more away from them? Shame on you and anyone who allows this to pass!
