Ron Paul Introduces Legislation to Overturn the NDAA

The Infamous NDAA

 

Over the past couple of months, there has been a great uproar over the passage of the National Defense of Authorization Act (NDAA). Despite veto threats, on December 31, 2011, President Obama quietly signed this dangerous bill into law, effectively shredding the Bill of Rights.  He chose to wish American citizens a Happy New Year by making it legal for him to have us indefinitely detained, without reason and without trial.

As expected, the bill has been met with outrage by citizens of the U.S.  Montana has launched an effort to recall their state Senators that voted in favor of this unconstitutional legislation.  Both Rhode Island and El Paso county in Colorado have drafted resolutions to nullify the NDAA.

We can expect other states to follow suit against the NDAA which would strip us of our civil liberties and suspend habeus corpus.

Ron Paul Introduces Legislation to Overturn the NDAA

Today, Texas Congressman and Republican Presidential candidate Ron Paul made a Congressional floor speech in opposition of the NDAA. In this speech, he introduced legislation to repeal section 1021 of the bill, which contains the disturbing indefinite detention clause.

Paul went on to criticize Senator Lindsey Graham and his other colleagues for their willingness to blatantly disregard their oaths to uphold the Constitution.

 

 

This is one of the many reasons that Dr. Paul should be the only acceptable choice for President of the United States. While Obama and our state representatives are perfectly willing to sign away our freedoms, Ron Paul is one of the few that is fighting to protect us.

I strongly urge you to call or email your Senators and Representatives to demand that they vote to overturn the NDAA. Even though we chose them to represent us, in passing this dangerous bill, they’ve shown that they do not care about the American people.  We must show them that this is our country and we will not sit idly by while they ignore the vow they made swearing to uphold the Constitution.

      The rest of the world understands that we need him.  It’s a crying shame that there are still so many in our own country who still don’t..I feel like God is giving us one last chance to fix the mistakes we’ve made. If we do the right thing, He just might allow us to keep our freedoms. If we don’t, He’s going to give us what we’ve asked for and hand us our slavery on a platter.

        That exactly how I feel! Too many people I talk to keep repeating the msm talking points, he’s too old, he’s unelectable……
        I’ll keep praying for guidance but this is the path I’ve chosen because it feels right in my heart.
        God bless and protect Ron Paul and our country!

          I hate the excuse that he’s too old. With age comes wisdom. Or at least that’s how it’s supposed to work. I would rather have an older, wiser, more experienced gentlemen leading my country, than some younger, reckless guy who feels like he has something to prove.

    The Constitution of the United States, as amended, is the supreme law in all United States jurisdictions, including its territories and foreign military bases. All other laws, whether federal, state, county, or municipal, and whether in respect of criminal or civil matters, must conform to the US Constitution, within these jurisdictions, or they may not be enforced.

    Acts of Congress don’t supersede the Constitution. Anyone who says otherwise is in error. When an Act of Congress and the Constitution of the United States are in conflict, the Constitution prevails.

    The Bill of Rights is a part of the Constitution (as amended), and as such it is higher law than, say, the Civil Rights Act of 1965. The provisions of the Constitution (as amended) which pertain to the creation or the regulation of US currency is legally superior to the Federal Reserve Act of 1913.

    No, there are no laws in the United States that supersede or eclipse the US Constitution. The United States exists as a legal corporate entity because of its Constitution, and as long as the United States exists, it will NEVER be possible for any other law to be higher than the US Constitution.

    What has really happened is that we have acquired a criminal government.
