... today in Washington, Congressman Aaron Schock voted to not pass an amendment to a provision in a defense bill that would reverse the indefinite detention of terror suspects caught on American soil, including American citizens.
Uh, what? Let me read that again--Congressman Aaron Schock voted NO on an AMENDMENT to a provision of the NDAA that would have helped secure American citizens their right to HABEAS CORPUS!
Let me repeat that it again so it is crystal frickin' clear! SCHOCK VOTED TO LET THE MILITARY DETAIN YOU, an American citizen, INDEFINITELY WITHOUT A LAWYER, JUDGE, OR EVEN CHARGES.
Though, under this system they can just make the charges up!

Listen, we've got a real problem. Our rights are being taken away on all levels and it's at an alarming rate. It's not just Aaron Schock, it's other area congressman like Bobby Schilling (who you thought was TEA Party affiliated) and 236 others. See for yourself.
Defeating Washington Senator Smith's Amendment No. 46 means the military has the power to arrest you and detain you indefinitely. Schock, Schilling, and a slew of other Representatives from the police state Chicago, 'er I mean Illinois, all voted to allow the military to arrest you and your kids and hold anyone indefinitely.
If you missed that whole debate at the end of last year, I'd really like for you to get brushed up on your history. Just do a search for NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) indefinite detention and you'll see what I'm talking about. While you there also read about how the NDAA passed last year legalizes troops to bestiality. Not making it up.
And now the good news. Congressman John Shimkus voted in favor of the amendment to reverse the indefinite detention part of the National Defense Authorization Act. So maybe there's hope for him and 181 others.
Oh, and by the way ... all you left-leaning apologists who are reading this thinking "yeah, Greg, go get 'em ... attack them Republicans! How dare they vote for the end of due process in this country and legalize bestiality for the military?"
Just remember who signed the legislation on New Year's Day ... President Obama. That's who!
