Petition To: Stop Indefinite Detention! By Rand PaulSubmitted by pinky33 on Thu, 11/22/2012 - 06:05
Petition to: My Congressman and Senators
STOP INDEFINITE DETENTION! PLEASE SIGN!!!!
Whereas: The 6th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees every American citizen the right to due process; and
Whereas: The "National Defense Authorization Act" (NDAA) shreds the 6th Amendment by allowing the indefinite detention of Americans without so much as a jury trial; and
Whereas: Granting government the unlimited power to detain American citizens without a jury trial is a dangerous precedent to set; and
Whereas: The indefinite detention provisions within the NDAA destroy the very foundations of our constitutional Republic.
Therefore: I urge you to support Senator Rand Paul's Amendment to strip the indefinite detention provision out of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) during the lame duck session of Congress.
