    WTF, Republicans. Your front runner openly and unabashedly supports the NDAA. A bill that you have been blasting Obama for signing. Do you still support Romney, even though he supports having the authority to take away your right to a fair trial? Do you support the Constitution at all, or is it really all about the party rivalry?

    All of the GOP candidates support the NDAA, except Ron Paul. And perhaps Santorum.

    I don't support Romney's support of NDAA's support of throwing out habeas corpus.

    But will this change any voter's minds, or is beating Obama more important than defending the Constitution?

    I modified my post. Ron Paul clearly does not. Santorum may not.

    Considering Obama signed it into law I don't think replacing him could possibly be exacerbating the problem.

    Any one of them (except Paul) would change their tune and sign the same law the moment they were elected and assumed all that executive power for themselves. They are just suffering from Incumbent Derangement Syndrome at the moment.

    Or in the Case of Obama and the Democrats is holding on to power more important than following the Constitution.


    You people need to chill the fuck out about the NDAA, if it is truly such a bad Constitutional Law, the Supreme Court will strike it down at some point. That's how the system works.

    As a true conservative,this pandering disuaded me from even looking their direction. Ditto. True conservatives do not pander or compromise their values. Guess im sort of a lone wolf.

    I've been saying that Romney is Obama with an "R".

    We need to get off this false "left right paradigm" that gives us on the illusion of choice.

    Right, because courts are never corrupted and always make the right/best decisions.

    Obama has taken us back to the "Dark Ages" of the 11th Century

    The NDAA Law that Obama signed has taken us back to the 11th century. The "Magna Carta" was signed in England in 1215AD & gave everyone the right to a trial by a jury of their peers. We are so screwed now that Obama signed this law & taken these basic human rights away from us.

    Now these jerks are trying to pass the SOPA and PIPA Laws. These laws will remove most of the information from the internet. You will no longer be allowed to know what is going on in this country or the world.

    I know how we can correct this law. Since CDO's are considered WMD's “financial weapons of mass destruction" Now that the new NDAA bill has become the law of the land, can we just arrest, torture & kill all the Wallstreet Bankers & government officials we believe are guilty without proof or trial? I bet if we did this enough one of 2 things would happen. These people would either hand over their plunder or they would get rid of that stupid law & give us our rights back.

    Any of you guys in the FBI or law enforcement. Maybe we should just form a posse & round them up.

    He didn't have much choice. A veto would have definitely been over-ridden and this would have been fodder for the right wing to spew out that timely canard "That the left doesn't support the military".

    He was able to change some of the wording and issued a signing statement. It was a poison pill from the get go.

    Obama Force Congress to Take Away Your Civil Rights in NDAA

    According to Democrat Carl Levin, Obama forced congress under threat of veto to remove the provision that protected the civil rights of US citizens.

    He was against that part of it.

    Obama Signing Statement: The NDAA Doesn

    What would have been your solution? The Senate vote was nearly unanimous on this.
