Under the NDAA:

• You may be arrested and indefinitely detained merely for being "suspected" of any involvement whatsoever with "terrorism" -- a term that can be twisted to mean almost anything, including protesting against animal testing laboratories or chaining yourself to a tree as an environmental protester.

• You no longer have a right to legal representation.

• You can be held for life without ever being charged for any crime.

• You no longer have a right to a trial by a jury of your peers.

• You can be murdered by the government -- legally! -- without ever being charged with a crime.

• The government does not have to present ANY evidence against you to take all these actions. The government merely has to assert that you are "suspected" of being involved in "terrorism." Such suspicion, of course, could be dreamed up against anyone! Political opponents, Free Speech proponents, protesters, dissenters... anyone at all.

The fantasy is that BO will use his new powers to "disappear" congressional opponents to a people's agenda. The reality is that he will use them to "disappear" citizen opponents to the corproate agenda.

Surely we must all understand that a mature fascism is already here now inside the United States. It is not a matter of it coming. It is already here. Let us take heed of the above, help one another and continue to carry the Message of Liberation for all and Resistance against evil. ~Namaste @Peta_de_Aztlan

If Obama suddenly realizes that he has no chance of winning a second term, I wouldn't be at all surprised if he seized upon some cooked-up pretext to declare martial law, imprison his opponents and become the first "PRESIDENT FOR LIFE" of AMERIKA.
