an American gulag?

| | TrackBacks (0)
The Patriot Act's material support provisions allow our government to criminalize speech and repress political dissent, a frontal assault on the First Amendment... 

The National Defense Authorization Act would expand those assaults by eliminating the need to prosecute. In the hands of a president, attorney general, US attorney, or even, potentially, state or local prosecutors willing to use their powers for political purposes, it offers the legal authority for severe repression... creating the authority to detain individual participants indefinitely.
