I hope you didn't breathe a sigh of relief when President Obama promised not to use the power of the NDAA, also known as the Indefinite Detainment Act, against US citizens. You may be as American as Granny's apple pie but it doesn't mean you are safe.
Currently on the table in the House of Representatives (HR 3166) and the Senate ( S 1698) is the Enemy Expatriation Act. This venomous bit of legislation joins hands with the
Why would they want to do that? Well, there has to be a way to silence the dissenters. This bill bears and eerie resemblance to a bill passed by the Third Reich in Germany in 1935. The Nuremberg Laws took away the citizenship of German people based on race, blood type or dissent against Hitler's regime. The Expatriation Act threatens to take away citizenship of Americans for "engaging in, or purposefully and materially supporting, hostilities against the United States."
The very ambiguity of this law, especially when added to the other unconstitutional acts that have recently and rapidly come to pass, should strike fear into the heart of any patriotic American. For something as simple as DISAGREEING WITH YOUR GOVERNMENT you might be considered hostile. For donating to the campaign of a constitutionalist, you might be considered hostile. Other hostile acts that could label one a terrorist as per the DHS Gestapo could include having more than two weeks worth of stored food in your home, engaging is discourse on the internet regarding the state of the union, or even purchasing ammunition for your personal firearm.
This is another step down the slippery slope to a police state with total domination by the government. It sneakily attempts to circumvent the exceptions put forth on previous bills to set at ease the minds of the people. Their very diligence in finding ways to get around the arguments of the American people should make you very very uneasy. The conspiracy has ceased to be a theory and is now, simply an evident fact.
Paranoia is no longer a sign of a lack of rationality - it is the only sane reaction to the acts of a government gone insane.
