Our civil rights have been raped after 9/11. Have you noticed that?
Let’s start with the Patriot Act.
This unconstitutional document has completely violated our civil rights.
This document Violates –
The First Amendment freedom of speech guarantee, right to peaceably assemble provision, and petition the government for redress of grievances provisionViolates the Fourth Amendment guarantee of probable cause in astonishingly major and repeated ways. The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution reads:
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons of things to be seized.”
The Patriot Act, now passed and the law of the land, has revoked the necessity for probable cause, and now allows the police, at any time and for any reason, to enter and search your house – and not even tell you about it.
Violates the Fifth Amendment by allowing for indefinite incarceration without trial for those deemed by the Attorney General to be threats to national security. The Fifth Amendment guarantees that no person shall be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law, and the Patriot Act does away with due process. It even allows people to be kept in prison for life without even a trial.
Violates the Sixth Amendment guarantee of the right to a speedy and public trial. Now you may get no trial at all, ever.
Violates the Eighth Amendment (cruel and unusual punishment).
Violates the 13th Amendment (punishment without conviction).By law, they give the White
House a lot more power at the expense of Congress and the courts and undermine the structural checks and balances intended to safeguard our liberty.
Ron Paul said it so well…
He also said nobody in Congress read it

Glenn Beck Reacts to the “RightWing Extremism” report issued from the DHS
FOX Judge Napolitano Government and Liberty – Right Wing Extremism
Next,NATIONAL SECURITY PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTIVE/NSPD 51 AND HOMELAND SECURITY PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTIVE/HSPD-20
These directives would in effect make the President a dictator in case of a catastrophic event. The President will NOT work with the other branches of government equally to ensure a constitutional government is protected. It says clearly that there will be a cooperative effort among the three branches that will be coordinated by the President. If the President is coordinating these efforts it effectively puts him in charge of every branch. The language in the directive is entirely Orwellian in nature making it seem that it is a cooperative effort between all three branches but then it says that the President is in charge of the cooperative effort. Bush started this and passed it on to Obama

The government could NOT of gotten away with all this and much more, if it weren’t for 9/11. Because of 9/11 we gave up our rights! They realize the threat posed by large grassroots movements who are against the left right paradigm, especially ones including veterans and patriots demanding less government intrusion in our lives and a return to a constitutionally limited Republic.
