Obama Signs Police State Legislation
USA is now officially a Police State
President Barack Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law on New Year’s Eve. The bill provides a massive $662 billion for the US war machine and makes unprecedented inroads into democratic rights, authorizing the US military to seize individuals anywhere in the world and hold them in a military detention facility indefinitely, without a trial or any other legal recourse.
There was some discussion of this bill on the Internet and the consequences of it are so radical and far reaching that many thought Obama would veto it but mainly for tactial reasons. And now that he has signed it, this will send a shiver down the spine of any thinking person.
