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simply: "Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 (Public Law 112–81) is hereby repealed."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

Soldiers while deployed are always at risk in a combat area of operations. It is a sad day in our history when we look to take shortcuts to save a dollar, when our Soldiers are in harms way deserve all entitlements due to them. All Soldiers should contact their state lawmakers and voice their concerns. I will continue to prayer for all Soldiers deployed and their families. Keep the faith The Lord will have the last say!

This is wrong, my husband has been in for 6years in the military and that combat pay has helped take care of us , his family. Lower the congress and presidents pay, these soldiers give up family, home comforts for our country. This is a real hardship that is a huge sacrifice. I am sick about this and hope something can be done. Support our troops!

A slap in the face to the military. The politicians should look at their own pay for cuts instead of military members that have barely enough to get by as it is.

5 years military. . This is horrible. Cut cogress pay since they are not "working". Congress should never be allowed to give itself a raise. Make welfare applicants take a drug test, that will save a lot of our funds for those that deserve it like soldiers down range.

Wrong priorities. Welfare moms don't need smart phones. Soldiers need their pay. Enough said.

My child is serving overseas, another deployment, his wife and children should not be forced to do without because Obama says so. We are his employer and it's time we as a county hold him accountable. Fire him!
