Concerns about subversion grow after Republican strategist says GOP establishment will not allow Ron Paul to win
ne of the most extraordinary documents in human history -- the Bill of Rights -- has come to an end under President Barack Obama.
Writes one LewRockwell.com columnist: "The National Defense Authorization Act will make it official. It will confer upon the executive branch and the military (increasingly, the same things) the permanent authority to snatch and grab any person, U.S. citizens included, whom it decrees to be a "terrorist" -- as defined or not by the executive or the military - and imprison them, indefinitely, without formal charge, presentation of evidence or judicial proceeding of any kind. These "detainees" will have neither civilian rights in the civil court system, nor -- crucially -- even the minimal rights to due process and decent treatment conferred upon prisoners of war.
Folks, you can’t make this stuff up; although for a moment I thought it was– like an exaggerated satire from The Onion.
