For those of you that were raging against this bill.
For those of you that don’t know about this bill, this bill was passed by Congress on Tuesday. Basically put, this allows the military to detain, torture, interrogate, and assassinate citizens without reason and without fair trial. A member of the military could shoot you down right on the street for the simple fact that they don’t like you. This bill is unconstitutional and would destroy our freedom. As Americans, we have the right to act against this bill (whilst we still can).
Even is Obama vetoes this bill, without our voice, Congress can override it with the overwhelming amount of support it received (97-3 in favour of the bill).
Call, email, write your representatives and tell them that you do not want this bill put into play. It violates the constitution, people will misuse their power if this bill got an overriding vote, it denies the basic American freedoms in the First Amendment.
Here are directories that give information to contact your Senators and Representatives.

It may take some navigation on the pages.
We must act against this if we wish to continue enjoying our simplest American freedoms without worry.
Reblog to spread the word. Most importantly, contact your representatives. If their voicemail is full, wait a day, and call again. Use all possible routes of communication to let them know that you are serious.
We can do this folks. The simplest thing we can do is act.
brb, moving to Sweden.
I’m sure this bill was highly inspired for OWS, too…
Just thirteen days ago I was eight months pregnant.
Everyone loved rubbing my belly.
I even wore my “Baby On Board” shirt over my gigantic stomach.
Yeah uh…you should know the sort of danger you could potentially be putting yourself in if you go to the OWS lines.
I’m sorry, but I just can’t feel sympathy for this woman.
It just feels like it goes back around to people assuming they are entitled to special treatment because they are pregnant/have a baby, and that they should be exempt from the rules.
That’s.not.how.it.works…as much as they would like it to, and as much as some people enable their catering thinking.
If you are 8 months pregnant, and you willing throw yourself into something where you KNOW brutalities are being committed, then you are a dumb one.
I have no heart.
