Resolution Condemning the 2012 NDAA



WHEREAS, the most recently enacted National Defense Authorization Act passed the Congress by an overwhelming bipartisan majority and was signed into law by the president and,


WHEREAS, provisions in this law provide agents of the federal government and the military the authority to indefinitely detain both citizens and non citizens, on US soil, without charge and,


WHEREAS said detention can be effected solely on the basis of an unsubstantiated accusation that the detainee poses a threat and,


WHEREAS, there is no provision for due process or judicial review of said actions and,


WHEREAS, said detainees can have their right to legal counsel withheld and,


WHEREAS, detainees are denied their right to be informed of specific charges and be confronted by their accuser and,


WHEREAS, detention can be indefinite with no fixed term, and at the whim of the detaining authorities and,


WHEREAS, such authority confers upon the government of the United States unprecedented power to usurp the rights of the people in a direct violation of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights,





NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Libertarian Party of Delaware calls on every candidate running for elected office, national, state, or local, to denounce this abrogation of constitutional due process rights, and to do everything in their power once elected to repeal and nullify this brazen violation of Constitutional protection and natural law.
