The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) was signed into law by Obama this year. It allows the military to indefinitely detain American citizens without a trial if they are suspected of being involved in terrorism. When Romney was asked if he would have signed this bill into law, Romney said yes and explained that although he understands that this power could be abused, he said he doesn’t think Obama would abuse this power, and he wouldn’t abuse this power as president.
This should really be the story of the debate, but you won’t get to hear much about this, of course. The whole point of having a Constitution is that you don’t give the president and the federal government power just because you trust them. That stupid answer by Romney should disqualify this man in the mind of the voters, if they were really paying attention. It shows how little Romney understands or cares about following the Constitution.
Why not throw out the law and give a president that we trust, the power to literally do anything? Would that be OK with Romney? Let’s establish an official dictatorship and just make sure that it is someone that we trust that is running things. How about that?
