The raft of legislation rammed through both houses of Congress since December 31st - with wide majority votes - nullifies every clause in the Bill of Rights. Every senator and congressperson who voted in favor of those bills violated his or her oath of office, the promise to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. Congress just replaced the Rule of Law with rule of tyranny. They must all be fired.
I have collected articles on this legislation, since MSM has obfuscated the provisions and their real effects on our lives. If you are unaware of what has just been done to this nation and to each American living in it, educate yourselves. Then notify your three representatives that you will not vote for any representative who voted to nullify the Bill of Rights by voting "yea" on the NDAA.
If you are totally in the dark about the indefinite imprisonment of American citizens without charges, evidence, habeas corpus, a trial by jury or access to legal counsel, start here:

Chris Hedges. What we will live under if the Supreme Court upholds the use of the Espionage Act to punish those who expose war crimes and state lies will be a species of corporate fascism. And this closed society is, perhaps, only a few weeks or months away.

passage in current Congress.
and last - Alex Jones at Infowars.com calls the NDAA a "hoax" because Congress cannot legalize tyranny by passing a law that says it can.
