I found this while searching for NDAA protests.

"I voted for President Obama, and I have defended his decisions to friends and family for three years. No more. By refusing to veto the 2011 National Defense Authorization Act, Obama will be remembered by history as the President that allowed American freedom to be extinguished."

".....This is one of the few times in American history in which all thinking people – regardless of political stripe – are united in opposition to an action taken by our government. Here is an objection from the right and here is one from the left. Indeed, the rest of the world can hardly believe that this is happening."

American freedom ended long ago. This law is just one more nail in it's coffin.

When did American freedom ever exist? Was it before the Sedition Act (1798)? Before the Whiskey Rebellion (1789)? Before Shays Rebellion (1786)? Was it established when the Founders had decided that only the landed gentry could vote and hold office? Or that even those Americans should not have recourse to petition their government through national Initiative, Referendum, and Recall? Or afterwards when Congress made monogamy the law of the land to prevent Mormons from having more than one legal spouse? Or when Congress decided what people couldn't ingest? Or that activity between consenting adults involving the private use of their sexuality and money can be declared illegal? What exactly is freedom if all of these prohibitions upon the personal lives of Americans have been allowed while freedom is only now ending?
