Stop The Madness

This is a 16 year old American Citizen named Abdulrahman al-Awlaki. He is only different than your children or my children because of the family he was born into. This child did not have any ties to terrorism yet our government used a calculated drone strike to kill him citing "He should of had a more responsible father". This is a case of one man playing judge, jury and executioner.

I commend Rand Paul for defending the constitution and making a point of having the Justice Department condemn drone strikes on Americans on American soil, but what about Americans overseas. Are you not entitled to due process of the law if you travel overseas? Rand Paul made Eric Holder answer the easy questions and now I would like the hard questions answered. Can our government kill an American overseas with out due process? Regardless of what the government thinks it knows about you and your actions are you entitled to a trial by jury? I know many people think that if someone has ties to a terror organization they should give up their constitutional rights, but the government can call anything they want a terrorist organization. They can come out tomorrow and say that The Tea Party is a terrorist organization. Should I forfeit my constitutional rights? Should I have to live in fear because a governmental organization does not agree with my core beliefs? Some people think I am crazy for asking the question but where do we say enough is enough? I think when an innocent 16 year old is killed we need to draw the line. Could Abdulrahman al-Awlaki have turned out like his father? Maybe but we should have let him decide what kind of person he wanted to be.

If a U.S citizen decides to join a terroist group, and chooses to live in that country, I do not see how they can still be considered an American Citizen. You turned your back on 'your country". We have people dying every day deffending our rights and our country. This man can join a terrorist group, go over seas, turn his guns on us, and you want due procces? Should American's be killed on American soil by drone strikes, no. Should terrorist be killed on foregin soil, yes. They are terrorist, nothing more, nothing less.

They are terrorists according to our government but without due process we have no proof that they are terrorist. We can not give our government that much discression.

The government calls anyone/organization that does not fit into the cookie cutter mold a "terrorist" organization including "domestic terrorists" without proper investigation into who/what these people actually are. They continue to legalize drugs in order to keep Americans the sheep they have become. Question everything.....
