We want to thank Mr. Martin Armstrong of Armstong Economics, Forecasting the World, for giving us permission to repost this article found here (pdf file). We consider this one of the best postings on the 2012 National Defense Authorization act. It includes history,court rulings and even Bible quotations, that illustrate how lack of forward thinking, emotional knee jerk reactions and apathy are leading us down the road to tyranny. If we are not already there as our post Michigan replaces democracy with Autocracy leads us to believe.
Mr. Armstrong understands what it is like to have his rights taken away. He was held in U.S. prison for over 7 years on a "civil contempt" charge. Note, not a criminal charge, but a civil contempt charge! So to say it can not happen here is a lie. It can and it is!

2012 National Defense Authorization Act
I am almost without words. Anyone who is against this new 2012 National Defense Authorization Act is being called a “traitor” as is the case with Senator Marco Rubio of Florida. The provisions of the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act, approved by the Senate last week, will allow the military to arrest terrorist suspects in the United States and detain them indefinitely without trial. But the definition of terrorist is anyone who disagrees with government. It might be safer in prison than out here right now.
