The future these Americans will awaken into should they fail to heed the many warnings being shouted out to them was described best by George Orwell in his seminal work 1984 wherein he warned….“People simply disappeared, always during the night. Your name was removed from the registers, every record of everything you had ever done was wiped out, your one-time existence was denied and then forgotten. You were abolished, annihilated: vaporized was the usual word.”

The Total Collapse

voices from across the political spectrum are concerned that the bill opens the door for the military – led by the president as commander in chief – to indefinitely detain American citizens, even within the U.S.

"We're talking about American citizens who can be taken from the United States and sent to a camp at Guantanamo Bay and held indefinitely," explains Rand Paul of Kentucky, one of 13 senators who voted against the bill.

"There are laws on the books right now that characterize who might be a terrorist: someone missing fingers on their hands is a suspect, according to the Department of Justice. Someone who has guns, someone who has ammunition that is weatherproofed, someone who has more than seven days of food in their house can be considered a potential terrorist. If you are suspected because of these activities, do you want the government to have the ability to send you to Guantanamo Bay for indefinite detention?"

The senator was likely referring to documents released by the Department of Justice in Obama's first year in office listing everyone from returning veterans to pro-life activists to 2nd Amendment advocates as possible "domestic terrorists."

Joining Paul in opposing the bill were unlkely allies Ben Cardin D-Md., Tom Coburn, R-Okla., Mike Crapo, R-Idaho, Jim DeMint, R-S.C., Dick Durbin, D-Ill., Al Franken, D-Minn., Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, Mike Lee, R-Utah, Jeff Merkley, D-Ore., Jim Risch, R-Idaho, Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Ron Wyden, D-Ore.
