The latest email from C4L President John Tate:
Your liberties are once again hanging by a thread. As little as five votes, in fact.
Next week, the lame-duck U.S. Senate will take up the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).
And the statists will do virtually anything to keep the power to lock up American citizens at will and throw them in prison forever without so much as a trial - effectively GUTTING the Sixth Amendment in the process.
The good news is Senator Rand Paul is offering an amendment to prevent the indefinite detention of American citizens and reaffirm the Sixth Amendment.
Last time he tried a similar effort, it only failed by five votes, and you and I had very little time to mobilize against this outrageous assault on our liberties.
That's why I'm hopeful with your IMMEDIATE action today, we can DEFEAT the indefinite detention provision of the NDAA.
So won't you please agree to call your senators IMMEDIATELY?
Tell them to REJECT the indefinite detention of American citizens and vote against any defense authorization bill that includes such an abuse of power.
Demand they support Senator Rand Paul's amendment upholding our rights.
Of course, time is running out, so your action today is absolutely critical.
You can find your senators' contact information here.
This outrageous assault on our remaining liberties isn't something out of Fidel Castro's Communist Cuba.This is something statists in our federal government are doing!
What freedoms won't they take from us?
What constitutional liberties will they not crush as the statists' national security state continually expands to fit a bunch of bureaucrats' idea of "safety"?
You and I can't let this happen. You and I MUST fight back.
So please call your U.S. senators IMMEDIATELY.
P.S. Next week, the U.S. Senate will take up the NDAA, and Senator Rand Paul will be fighting to prevent the federal government from locking up American citizens and throwing away the key without even so much as a trial.
So please call your senators TODAY and demand they reject the indefinite detention of American citizens and vote against any defense authorization bill that includes language allowing this abuse of power.
Urge them to support Senator Paul's amendment to uphold our rights.
Please act TODAY!
