    The hell of it is that Obama has removed his VETO threat, he's caved again. This legislation is dangerous to American freedoms, whats to stop the Government from claiming that you or I are terrorist sympathisers and hold us indefinately if we protest or write against some government action or war ?

    We know damn well they couldn't detain us if this authority to detain indefinately without Habeas Corpus rights, doesn't become law, but we have no such assurance once this passes. This legislation should have the American People hitting the streets in protest of yet another right being taken away for the sake of supposedly keeping us safe. Most have no idea of the slippery road this takes us down.

    As far as I'm concerned this is the last Straw with Obama going back on the principles he ran on in 08'. The only way he'll get my vote now is as a vote against an even worse Idiot such as if Newt Gingrich gets the repub nomination. Even then I'll have a hard voting for him this time around because when it comes to the wars on 'terror', foreign policy and politicians selling out to big money interests, we basicly get the same damn thing whether we vote repub or dem.

    Ron Paul is looking better all the time !!
