"Free Speech in America could effectively become a memory, and those who have constantly fought for our freedom(s) will likely be muzzled and may be hauled-off to internment camps, which we now know exist and when S 1959 is passed into law, it’s inevitable that they will soon be used." Sound like a bad science fiction movie? This comes from an unusual web site...they might just be a little radical. http://justanothercoverup.com/?p=334 And one of the links about the bill took me to another unusual site calling to prevent government coverups. http://www.roguegovernment.com/news.php?id=4682 These may be a little "out there". What do you think? any merit to this?

"VIOLENT RADICALIZATION- The term `violent radicalization' means the process of adopting or promoting an extremist belief system for the purpose of facilitating ideologically based violence to advance political, religious, or social change." The above quote is from one of the linked sites. This quote sums up what this law is about. Actually, the law is not needed. It is already very much against the law to advocate, conspire, or plan to violently overthrow the government of the USA. It is against the law to advocate, conspire, plan, or commit violence for any reason. Given the slight danger to our civil liberties if this law should go into effect, I gotta ask,"What do we need it for?". Seriously, why would our legislators consider this bill? It is not needed if the honest intent is to have a tool to incarcerate people committing or planning violence.

Yes there is merit to this. It is just being attempted a lot sooner than I expected. Our own Congress is our worst enemy and has been for a long time,and this is just further evidence of this.

If people do not think this will pass, they are very sadly mistaken. Just this morning a teacher was "arrested" for a comment on a blog post! Americans need to wake up BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE to say or do anything about this.

There are hysterics everywhere... my own sister firmly believed that if the Equal Rights Amendment was passed (way back when), men and women would have to share bathrooms with no doors on the stalls!! Paranoia runs rampant on the internet... do yourself a favor and don't buy into it!
