The Indiana State Senate took a big step forward last session in response to the “Indefinite Detention” powers of the NDAA when it passed SB400 by a pretty strong margin. But, the House refused to move the bill forward and there’s still work to do to nullify this unconstitutional federal act.
What was most lacking – beyond political courage in the House – was strong grassroots organization behind the bill well in advance. Last minute support was strong, but next time, Indiana legislators need to be on notice for months in order to get this important legislation passed. With your work and dedication, liberty will win.
In order to take this to the next level and get a victory, your action is needed right now. Starting today, and all the way through the rest of the year, local governments around the state need to be pressed to take a similar action – passing legislation in support of due process and to nullify “indefinite detention”. And at the same time, calling on the state legislature to do the same. When the state is blanketed with local communities willing to nullify this unconstitutional federal act, the state legislature will be on notice. Do your job, or else.
It’s going to take work to ensure that this is how things play out. Here’s what you can start doing right now.
1. Contact your local legislators – County, City, Town – and urge them to introduce model legislation in support of the Liberty Preservation Act.Details
