SC to oppose Feds’ indefinite detention scheme?

May 7, 2012
By

The following alert comes from the Tenth Amendment Center:

The [South Carolina] senate finance committee is considering a bill, S. 1184, to amend state law, effectively nullifying sections of the NDAA authorizing indefinite detention. The bill prohibits the agencies of the state and its subdivisions, including their officers and employees, acting in official capacity from “[engaging] in any activity that aids an agency of the armed forces of the United States in execution of [the NDAA], in the investigation, prosecution, or detainment of any citizen of the United States in violation of Section 3, Article I, and Section 14, Article I of the South Carolina Constitution.”

S. 1184 was introduced February 7, 2012, and now sits in committee with two sponsors; an additional two sponsors have signed on from other committees. Given recent passage of Virginia’s own nullification of the NDAA, let’s continue this trend and send yet another message to the politicians in D.C. – we won’t allow them to abridge our liberties.

You are urged to contact individual members of South Carolina’s Senate Finance Committee, politely explaining why S. 1184 will help restore liberty and continue in the restoration of our Constitutional Republic. Should this bill pass, South Carolina will be the second state to reject the Feds and their unconscionable, unconstitutional NDAA.

Of course, a true nullification would prohibit the Feds from enacting the NDAA within the borders of the State; however, this is a good first step. We need more people at the State and local level with the same fire and conviction that Robert Barnwell Rhett had when he boldly stated, ‎’I am a nullifier and will never consent that more power should be given to this government than strictly belongs to it.’

    The language of Virginia’s NDAA “nullification” was a little weak. One major shortcoming is that it did not say that Virginia authorities would RESIST the Feds carrying out unconstitutional NDAA detention against Virginians. All it says is that state authorities don’t have to cooperate with the Feds if they determine the US or Virginia constitution is being violated.

    So yes, it’s somewhat encouraging, but still a long way from the ideal.

    “Of course, a true nullification would prohibit the Feds from enacting the NDAA within the borders of the State; however, this is a good first step.”

    Well I managed to totally ignore this when I typed my comment. My apologies. I guess it doesn’t hurt to reiterate your point though :)
