Military to Police American Civilians!?

The ACLU has advised that this week:  "The Senate will be voting on a bill that will direct American military resources not at an enemy shooting at our military in a war zone, but at American citizens and other civilians far from any battlefield -- even people in the United States itself."
According to the ACLU:  "The worldwide indefinite detention without charge or trial provision is in S.1867, the National Defense Authorization Act bill, which will be on the Senate floor on Monday (11-28). The bill was drafted in secret by Sens. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) and passed in a closed-door committee meeting, without even a single hearing."
The ACLU goes on to say that we should consider writing letters of objection to our congress folk.  Yeah, sure, that'll stop it.  And did you recognize those pigs that just flew by?
This plot which would cap off the ultimate demise of our Bill of Rights is apparently a bi-partisan scheme, and as such offers a major advantage to us good guys, in effect disallowing one political bunch to claim the "lesser-evil" advantage over the other.  (Sorry, Dems.)  But we must ask what does one suppose intelligent and caring Americans and most especially liberals should do to effectively oppose such intimidating treachery?
...Support as president a lying criminal against America and humanity such as a George Bush?
...Or re-elect as president such a superior liar as Barack Obama who continues the Bush criminal wars and who negotiates away our best interests with Republicans even when enjoying Democrat majorities in both houses of congress, and then soliciting a billion dollars in private campaign contributions that the citizens will pay back many, many fold one way or another, to include suffering the world's 37th "best" medical system, about the same in education, potholed highways and rotting bridges, tapping our phones and monitoring millions of e-mails and articles such as this daily, offering deals to gut Medicare and Social Security, examining the body cavities of traveling grandmothers with equipment now sold to us by the former Secretary of Homeland Security, and then there will be the lives of  our children-troops wasted in some godforsaken desert on the other side of the world, when, that is, they're not turned upon us.
...Or cloister ourselves behind the thick oaken doors of our churches to pray that the Prince of Peace will deliver us from all evil, and may God bless America and our "troops,"  no matter whether slaughtering "terrorist heathen" mothers and children 8,000 miles from our coastline, or now perhaps to police our streets, our parks, our speech and our homes, decked out in body armor and weaponized with truncheons, pepper spray, noise canons, and...guns!
Please respond and advise us, my partisan-addicted friends:  What are your inclinations to rise and defend the America of Tom Jefferson, the Adams brothers, Ben Franklin, Nathan Hale, Tom Paine and such? 
But be advised from here that the "lesser-evil" intellectually-challenged have now been effectively disenfranchised from whatever credibility they ever fancied that they enjoyed, and are asked to therefore spare us the aggravation of their contributions.

Leaving behind a treacherous government now addicted to perpetual war, its limitlessly greedy and power-lusting masters, as well as the retarded albeit smirky Republicans and their evermore clonish Democrat colleagues, a braindead electorate (more...)
