If you haven’t heard about Senate Bill 1867 to be voted upon TODAY it is paramount that you know about it. This will basically give the US “The power is so broad that even U.S. citizens could be swept up by the military and the military could be used far from any battlefield, even within the United States itself.” Basically the US could use military action (which has been previously illegal) on American citizens based on a military panel with NO DUE PROCESS of law. There is potential for a giant abuse of power!

You can listen to an awesome podcast that goes into it here.
You can try to read through the MONSTROUS bill here. Good luck.
This is coincidentally sponsored by a Republican (John McCain) and a Democrat (Carl Levin). Bipartisan support for a bill taking away American’s civil liberties and giving the military ability to use force against Americans? You have to ask – what’s going on here and what is coming down the pipeline?
Oh, and guess what Presidential candidate (Republican or Democrat) is AGAINST this. I’ll give you a hint – Ron Paul. Thank you Ron Paul.
