The day fascism almost came to America (no seriously).

Keep a close watch on S. 1867, it's going to allow the indefinite detention of American citizens.

The Atlantic:

Is it lawful for the president to order any American held indefinitely as a terrorist, without formal charges, evidence presented in open court, a trial by jury, or a standard of "guilty beyond a reasonable doubt"? The U.S. Senate had a chance Wednesday to assert that no, a president does not possess that power -- that the United States Constitution guarantees due process. 

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) urged her colleagues to seize the opportunity. "We as a Congress are being asked, for the first time certainly since I have been in this body, to affirmatively authorize that an American citizen can be picked up and held indefinitely without being charged or tried. That is a very big deal, because in 1971 we passed a law that said you cannot do this. This was after the internment of Japanese-American citizens in World War II," she said. "What we are talking about here is the right of our government, as specifically authorized in a law by Congress, to say that a citizen of the United States can be arrested and essentially held without trial forever."

The rest is here:


Those who were opposed to arresting U.S. Citizens indefinitely (who voted for stripping the nutjob anti-American  proposal, (shout out to Barack Obama and Rand Paul for opposing this lunacy): 




Those idiot war hawk, anti-civil liberty nutjobs who wanted to detain American citizens and put them through military commissions:


   
Take note of these morons, regardless of their party they should be made to pay during their respective primary.
