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simply: "Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (Public Law 112–81) is hereby repealed."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

This abrogation of the Constitutional rights of American citizens to privacy and a fair trial is absolutely unacceptable, and must be repealed immediately.

Do not allow our civil rights to be removed in the name of fear. If we do then the terrorists have won and turned us into them

I've lived through 14 Presidents and have seen some great ones, some bad ones but never have I seen one who blatently and arrogantly betrays America, the American people and spits on our Constitution, the military, the law and everything America has stood for over 237 years! He's the epitomy of everything humans do not want for their supposed leader! He's dangerous to everyone and everything that good people hold dear. He makes good Nero look smart and benevolant!

I totally agreed with this comments! whole point of going to Afghanistan and Iraq was for combat operations- Afghanistan still is a hostile warzone, and both U.S. and NATO forces continue to suffer losses in and out of combat hot zones. Insurgent attacks have accrued throughout areas that have been deemed ‘safe’, and in areas where hostilities were not foreseen. This is what i think if those law maker received bonuses and just sit in safe place while being protected by the military.. why not military that constantly put their lives in danger and to top them all is being separated to their family? Came on!!!!!

This disturbs me that people that have never been in a war zones make these kind of decisions. We get paid a fraction of what these public servants get paid and they cant even effectively do their own jobs.
