    It seems to me that Congress should be forced to explain why we are at war before extending war powers.

    If it's true and you are not a terrorist, don't let it bother you. If you are a terrorist, then you might think about leaving...right away.

    So, if you're innocent, you don't need no stinkin' constitution -- that about sum up your position?

    Looks like the republicans pushed this one through too. Almost all the of "yeas" for the amendment are democrat. Though, this entire mess is bipartisan idiotry at it's finest.

    If you are innocent the Army won't be knocking your door in, but the militant might have a problem. BTW, the first post had (in the box) "Secret Bill To Be Voted On Today Would Allow The Military To Sweep Up US Citizens At Home Or Abroad" which is to what I was referring.

    So your position is that the innocent do not need a constitution. Thank you for the confirmation

    I was already aware of that.

    BTW, "Reading the link provided by the OP will solve that mystery" means that the answer to your question can be found by using your mouse or other pointing device to click on the link provided by the OP (in that little 'box' you see). This will open a new window where you can read the story (again, wherein your question will be answered, or at least the terminology that seems to confuse you will be explained). My apologies for not being clearer on that earlier.

    If the bill is passed the supreme court can strike it down by declaring it unconstitutional. Hopefully that will happen because that bill is going against every single right we have as an american citizen.
