First the rogue government passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) which includes a provision that allows the government to arrest anyone (including citizens) and detain them indefinitely for any acts the government deems support terrorism. It is well documented that language was introduced that would clearly exclude citizens and that it was voted down.
The language is ambiguous so they will be able to do what they want and will be able to defend their acts using the cover of an illegal law.
But just in case, there is a bill, HR 3166, that would strip US nationals of their citizenship for acts of hostility against the United States. Yes, if the population decides to take the same action against the government that our Founders took then the government would strip those involved of their citizenship. That would certainly make it easier for them to detain us under the NDAA.
Enemy Expatriation Act – Amends the Immigration and Nationality Act to include engaging in or purposefully and materially supporting hostilities against the United States to the list of acts for which U.S. nationals would lose their nationality. Defines “hostilities” as any conflict subject to the laws of war. [author note: they can decide what constitutes acts that are subject to the laws of war] Summary
Perhaps the people in Congress are worried because they have long ago passed the kind of tyranny from which this country fought to escape. They might have an inkling that the country is a powder keg and at anytime the collective last nerve will be plucked.
We conduct our revolutions at the ballot box in this day and age but that does not mean the people do not reserve the right to disband the bonds that tie them to government should that government fail to serve those people.
This bill is designed to allow our government one more tool to usurp the authority granted under the Constitution and to drive another nail in the coffin holding our freedom.
Dissent is patriotic and it is even more patriotic to fight peacefully or otherwise to keep our freedoms and I will be damned if any government official will ever remove my citizenship because I defended the Constitution against any enemy foreign or domestic.
The government is moving toward total control. How long will it be before we are approached with the words, “papers please”?
Oh wait, we already get that when we travel, unless we are illegals and then we are left alone (or given government welfare).
They have us under surveillance, they can detain us indefinitely without due process and now they want to strip our citizenship if we ever defend ourselves against their tyranny.
It would serve them well to remember these timeless words:
“When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.” Read the rest of the US Declaration of Independence
