This is truly scary.  Do most  Americans even know what is happening down there or are they too mesmerized by  Justin Beiber, too high on drugs or just too dumbed down? 


From Campaign for Liberty


SPRINGFIELD, Virginia On Thursday night, Senator Rand Paul blocked passage of an amendment that would have allowed the government to indefinitely detain American citizens until Congress declares the War on Terror to be over. 

These Americans would be detained even if they were tried and found not guilty. An attempt was made to pass Amendment No. 1274 to the National Defense Authorization Act (S. 1867) by voice vote, but Senator Pauls objection and request for a roll call vote ultimately led to the bills defeat by a final vote of 41-59.


Campaign for Liberty is proud to stand with Rand Paul as he continues to fight for our liberties against the federal governments lust to increase its police state powers, said Matt Hawes, Vice President of Campaign for Liberty. The American people should not be forced to sacrifice their fundamental values, like the right to ones day in court and fair treatment, just so politicians can keep pretending they are making us safer.

It doesnt take a lot of imagination to picture how furious the Founders would be that any American, especially one who has been found innocent of the charges, could be held indefinitely by officials sworn to uphold the Constitution. Earlier this year, Campaign for Liberty worked with Senator Paul to combat the extension of controversial provisions of the Patriot Act and the IRTPA, and the organization will continue mobilizing its over half a million members to support such efforts to defend the American peoples civil liberties.
