Hello fellow DP'ers. It's been awhile since I've been on this site, I've gone off and done some other things while I've been away, school has been busy etc.
However, I have come back to spread a message. A message that, even at my young age of 17, I believe to be imperative to the cause of liberty and security of republic.
First off, I would like to bring a few recent events to your attention, in case you have not noticed them as a lot of the media outlets have not reported them.
-The government, through passing the NDAA now has the authority to use the military to arrest you, within America, and indefinitely detain you (that means you could be held for the rest of your natural life) WITHOUT a trial or lawyer. Furthermore, they are authorized to use torture against you, again without convicting you with a crime nor providing you with a lawyer or a trial by jury. Those of you familiar with the Bill of Rights would know that is a violation of the 4th, 6th, and 7th amendment.

-Congress is trying to add another provision to the NDAA, one that would allow the use of propoganda by the government against American citizens. In the past, it was illegal for the government to use propoganda to be used against domestic audiences, but the government seeks to change that. This means that they will be able to disseminate COMPLETELY false information to you in order to sway public opinion into supporting their actions.

-They have attempted to gain the authority to control and censor media and info on the web (SOPA).

-The military is creating hundreds of fake online personas in order to influence online debates about American politics. This, coupled with the lifting of the ban on propoganda would make it legal for the military to flood American online forums and discussions with lies and fake support in order to sway public opinion to support government actions.

-Breaking update, President Obama has appointed John Brennan as the "Death Czar", meaning he is head of the group that makes the list of targets that are to be assassinated by the government. to re-iterate, the government has set the precedent of being able to assassinate American citizens without trial or charging them with a crime
Are you feeling afraid yet? Are you angry? Do you think that one days these illegitmate powers could be used against you or your family if you disagree with the government?
Now, does it anger you that the supposed two nominees for president BOTH support the NDAA?

Do you wish that there was something else, someone else, you could vote for that would actually follow the constitution, as well as follow the ideas of limited government, end unconstitutional wars, and begin to reign in the massive amount of debt we have piled up?

Like it and share it people. If you have any questions concerning Ron Paul's ideas, positions, electability etc. I would be happy to try and address them. Furthermore, if you have other reasons for why you support Romney or Obama over Paul and would like to share/debate them with me, I would welcome that as well.
