Ron Paul goes on House floor to attempt to repeal law to send Americans to Guantánamo

We passed Constitutional Amendments to prevent this! The government under the influence of the corporate oligarchy is feeling the heat of some populism obviously. Next thing you know we'll be calling animal rights activists terrorists... Wait...

Can't stand his economic view, but he's spot on with this.

"And when they say, 'I want my lawyer,' you tell them, 'Shut up. You don't get a lawyer.'" Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.)

Anyhow, here's how this shit sandwich of a bill was voted on. Weird to see my favorite senator line up with Rand Paul on this issue. Here's how the house voted as well.

Strange times America.  The typical party vote is flying out the window and both sides more or less voted to strip you of your rights. YEAH for the War of Terror! I mean War on Terror and the passage of the NDAA , our "Socialist" President, "Democratic" Senate and "Tea Party" House disposed the Fifth Amendment (right to due process) and the Sixth Amendment (right to trial by jury).

That on top of the POS legislation piece called the "Patriot Act" which violates the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (safeguard against unreasonable search and seizure). Strange, those of us involved in OWS are finding commonality with those in the Tea Party in some weird ways. Lines are certainly being drawn in a new fashion, I'm losing sight of what's left and right. But with corporations hording the wealth of this country, and my government writing a law (in clear fucking violation of the constitution) that can potentially send me off to Guantánamo what good times to be an American!

To the lefties reading this, here's Maddow's 2 cents on this:
