    So yet another anti-constitution bill was passed almost unanimously (388-3) in congress & signed into law by King Obama on Thursday without much press. This basically says you can no longer protest or assemble in defiance in any place the secret service is present or plans to be present in the near future! Why wasn't this passed when we had all the occupy people or the G8 people protesting? Only now that gun rights are being fought for are they are they trying to strip our right to protest this baloons policies ?

    PS Ron Paul was one of the 3 who refused to vote for this. I wonder how long it will take for the Supreme Court to throw this one out?

    The crux of this is "willfully & knowingly". They're removing "willfully" and that's the big deal. Willfully means the gov. must prove intent. With that removed, they don't have to do that anymore. It gets their ducks in a row for mass arrests at any protest or civil demonstration. They'll silence opposition at any cost and continue to destroy the Constitution and B.O.R. with impunity.

    That's the one. For some reason, it's popping up on the web now.

    Thought so. It gets a (dis)honorable mention in my thread titled "Scorecard: How Many Rights have Americans Lost" over in the politics section.

    Only 3 voted against the bill, Ron Paul, Paul Broun, and Justin Amash, 30 did not vote and most were republicans which amounts to a yes vote.

    They had a lot of republican support for the bill and as you can see most voted for it. government is no longer for the people by the people and of the people. It is an elite group who believe in control of the masses and they should stop using democrat or republican because none are any of that
