The latest email from C4L President John Tate calls members to action against the government's desire to indefinitely detain American citizens:
In their mad rush to get out of town before the holidays, the statists in Washington, D.C. are launching an all-out assault to rip as much liberty away from you and me as possible.
With the NDAA expected to be voted on in both houses of Congress TODAY, it's absolutely vital you contact your U.S. Representative and Senators IMMEDIATELY.
Please call and demand they vote against the NDAA.
Please note, there's not much time, so it's absolutely critical you act at once.
As you may remember, just a few weeks ago, an amendment was added to the NDAA to curtail the blatantly unconstitutional indefinite detention provision.
Of course, the statists said the amendment was "no big deal," and the new provisions didn't limit their power to throw American citizens in jail forever and throw away the key.
But their actions tell a different story.
The McCain-led Conference Committee just stripped this provision from the NDAA at the last minute.
Their goal is to ensure statists can continue secretly targeting American citizens and throwing them in jail for years or even decades without so much as ever giving them a trial!
This is outrageous.
That's why it's so critical you contact your Representative and Senators NOW and DEMAND they vote against the McCain NDAA.
Tell them to vote to STOP the indefinite detention of American citizens and vote against any defense authorization bill that includes this language.
If you're unsure of who your elected officials are, you can find out here. Then contact them through the Capitol Hill switchboard at (202)224-3121.
If you don't get through on your first try, please keep calling.
I hope those outside Arizona will also make a special call to Senator McCain's office at (202) 224-2235 to remind him of his sworn oath to DEFEND our rights – not strip them away in a blatant grab for power.
But please act now.
