To the editor:
In another example of why bipartisanship is a bad idea, the 2013 version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) is soon to be approved by Congress and affirmed by the White House. This legislation continues to grant military authorities the power to detain anyone (including citizens) labeled a “terrorist.” It is the most dangerous form of ignorance to think that acts such as these are intended to protect.
Our elected officials and the mainstream media continue to distract the public with flavor-of-the-month issues. Meanwhile, basic rights are being usurped by a federal government drunk on power and devoid of accountability. If you feel safer by surrendering your liberty, I suggest you take time to read the U.S. Constitution. Then resist those who see it as an obstacle to their goals.
