As incredible as it sounds, the “torture bill” (HR 6166 and S 3930) that was just approved by Congress suspends those rights! Our President now has the authority to imprison anyone he chooses, without charges and without a right to trial, indefinitely. I’m not kidding. Look it up. I don’t know about you, but as big a fan as I am of all things medieval, I have no desire to return to the oppression of the feudal system.
If they voted to take away your rights, vote them out of office in November. It doesn’t matter where you stand on the political spectrum. This is a non-partisan issue. These are our personal rights as Americans, guaranteed by our Founding Fathers, and our Congressmen are supposed to be our civil servants, not our masters.
Stories to keep you up all night!
