    I can’t understand why they would do this to american people this is evil nazi BS. Why declare war on Citizins? Ofcourse there are people trying to lie and say this bill says does not say the US military can imprison civilians with no formal charges and hold them indefinitely with no trial
    but it does read it. And it is very scary that the only reason it is opposed by Obama is because it leaves him with no power and not that it gives Amercan people no power. ANd that a bill like this would pass through senate is very scary. Why what did we do wrong?

      Americans vote with their emotions; that has been mostly fear. Therefore they huddle with what is perceived to be the strong and traditional values and overwhelmed by lots of superficial news.
      We need to get people to understand that POLITICS is not an option it’s a obligation. How do we make politics fashionable, something to be knowledgeable about, something fascinating.

    When trying to understand a piece of legislation, it is helpful to have the actual words within the bill as well as the various amendments and changes that refer to any particular section. I cannot explain a bill to another person if I have not seen the wording for myself~to avoid misunderstandings and misinterpretations, I feel best when I can go to the source.

    Does WAMM have those parts of the bill referring to indefinite detention? Torture? Thank you.

    “WHY would they do this to the American people”? Because the American people have made ourselves completely irrelevant by behaving like brainless sheep in the voting booth, that’s why! Despite enormous evidence (see practically every single significant bill enacted over the past 20 years at least) that BOTH political parties are now fully owned and operated by the Corporate cartel (aka Wall Street), Americans keep handing over their votes to one of these two completely corrupt corporatist political parties! It’s as if Americans have a really bad case of battered spouse syndrome!
    Here is some earth shattering news for everyone. In a real Democracy, the citizens are the ones who get to pick who will lead and represent them, unlike what we have here in the U.S., where the Corporate cartel determines who the American people get to “choose” for their ‘leader and representative’, from a approved list of candidates who only belong to the two corporate owned political parties!. THIS is not a Democracy, it’s a big illusion!
    As Americans, we have all violated our obligations as citizens of a Democratic country, by obeying the orders of the Corporate cartel, by voting only for the Corporate approved candidates of the corporate owned and operated political parties!
    It’s time Americans wake up! The world will not cease to exist if Americans actually exercised their obligations as citizens of a democratic country, and actually voted for someone who is better aligned with their needs and interests, and is not a member of the Corporate owned political parties. In simple terms–stop voting for the same two corrupt corporate political parties–and then perhaps “we, the people” will become relevant with our government again!
    Make a vow to never again support (with donations or your vote) any member of either of the two corrupt corporate political parties, because they have only one interest–to act on behalf of the corporate interests of their owners. We are invisible to them, except for maintaining the farce of a Democracy in this country. Step away from your abusers and don’t look back!
