I Have No Civil Rights

With the yesterday’s passage of new detainee legislation yesterday, I lost my civil rights. If, in a law officer’s judgment, I provide “material support” to the enemy, I can be accused of being an enemy combatant. Once I get that status they can lock me up, and because I’m not a US citizen they don’t ever have to give me a trial. I can’t even force a trial by suing the government because I wouldn’t have that right anymore either. I don’t think America is the land of the free anymore. If you agree and want do something about it you should vote for politicians who care about civil rights, contribute money to the ACLU, and educate your friends.
