The slave mentality of Congress, unconstitutional detention edition

Posted by Charles II on December 2, 2011

Democrats who do not believe that the Constitution exists:

Casey
Conrad
Hagan
Inouye
Kohl
Landrieu
Levin
Lieberman (Lieberman doesn’t believe in the Constitution either, but not a Dem)
Manchin
McCaskill
Menendez
Ben Nelson
Pryor
Reed
Shaheen
Stabenow
Whitehouse

Republicans who believe that it does:

Rand Paul

You can read Greenwald on how bad this bill is–and how completely out of control the situation was before this bill ratified the suspension of the Constitution–here.

Once again, the rights defined in the US Constitution are not just rules on a piece of paper. They are some of the basic human rights. These include the right to face one’s accusers, to due process and to a speedy trial. Passing laws that fly directly in the face of the Constitution is, in effect, to deny the existence of God and the inherent dignity of Humankind.

This will not end well.

    Yep so true but it will be us little people that are going to feel the blunt of this act of treason by the so called elected officials of this country. Then again this will see a day in court but there’s not much hope there with the current supremes. If it does pass and it will then why bother with elections in 2012? It looks like the begining of the end of citizens rights to be able to complain about their govt. I think I remember this happening somewhere else around 1938 or so. I think I need new tin foil for my hat!
