I guess we’re just completely “over” the whole Constitution thing by now.

As a bonus: the Senate is currently debating whether or not to repeal prohibitions against torture.

Literally voting on something that’s an international war crime. Hooray America.

Fuck

Jesus world

I am so ready to not live in this country anymore. 

I thought that bill was for indefinite detention of anybody EXCEPT U.S. citizens?

The Supreme Court recently ruled that, if you are declared an ‘enemy combatant,’ there’s no legal restriction on detaining citizens. You don’t have to be proven to be an enemy combatant, just suspected.

When did the Senate decide to disregard our Constitution? I’m so confused on the whole thing. I mean, it doesn’t even seem remotely okay. I don’t believe it will become law because I still have some faith in my country, but still. Why do I feel like Americans have no more voice in the country’s matters? 

im starting to think SOPA was little more than a distraction now

Oh

Red Scare, meet Brown Scare.
