Ron Paul took time off from his campaign schedule to introduce legislation to repeal section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012.

Ron Paul showed why he is the leading advocate of the Constitution in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. This week he introduced legislation to repeal section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012. Signed into law without fanfare by President Obama, section 1021 of the new act authorizes the President to order the Armed forces to detain, "any person 'who was part of or substantially supported al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners,' and anyone who commits a 'belligerent act' against the U.S. or its coalition allies in aid of such enemy forces, under the law of war, 'without trial, until the end of the hostilities authorized by the [AUMF].'"

With the link of Ron Paul Bill to Repeal, I added

For my friends that are not aware of this, President Obama reluctantly signed a bill called NDAA. It allows the government or military to detain an American indefinitely without bond, trial, lawyers or even a charge if that person is suspected of terriorist UNTIL the CONFLICT is over. This reminds me of McCartyism if you substutite the word communist for terriorist. But at least if you were accused of being a communist, there was a hearing with the Senate committee. Under this bill you can disappear without a phone call home. Please asked your state leaders to repeal it.
