This scares me even more to be totally honest...
It was a cold evening in D.C.. Most citizens are at home online, or in the stores, shopping for Christmas gifts. The perfect time to try and pass something like the NDAA without the due attention it so clearly deserves.
Those who created (and passed) the NDAA have made a mistake however in the fact that they showed their hand. What was hoped to go unnoticed has become painfully (although not painfully enough) obvious to the American citizenry. So what do you do when you overplay your hand? You try to salvage as much as you can.
So why am I scared more now? Because I doubt they will make the same mistake again anytime soon. Instead look for executive orders or some such thing. How now do they grab this obviously desired power without once again tripping alarms?
Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once its realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.
