Under the recent passed 2012 federal Defense Authorization Act American citizens may be indefinitely detained, incarcerated, not presented with charges and denied counsel based on an accusation by federal agents of collaboration with or support of terrorists.
While Virginia cannot directly undo this purported law which undermines the Sixth Amendment, I introduced HB 1160 which will prevent the use of any Virginia agency or member of the Virginia National Guard or Virginia Defense Force to assist in any way to unlawfully detain a citizen of Virginia on behalf of the United States Government in violation of the Constitution of Virginia.
Because of this act of moral and constitutional violence masquerading as a law, agencies of the Federal government can detain citizens without a warrant and without a trial who are just accused of being terrorists.
This evil has come to America and Virginia must not participate in it. My HB 1160 would keep Virginia from adulterating the rights of our citizens. If Congress wishes to play the prostitute with the US Constitution, Virginia must remain faithful to our moral roots by passing my HB 1160.
That is why you must contact members of the Courts of Justice Civil Law Subcommittee Wednesday morning and afternoon. The contact information for the members of the subcommittee and the members of the full committee are below. Please contact all of them in support of this legislation.
Thanks for your support!

Words From The Past
ON THOMAS PAINE: He has been called an atheist, but atheist he was not. Paine believed in a supreme intelligence, as representing the idea which other men often express by the name of deity.
His Bible was the open face of nature, the broad skies, the green hills. He disbelieved the ancient myths and miracles taught by established creeds. But the attacks on those creeds — or on persons devoted to them — have served to darken his memory, casting a shadow across the closing years of his life.
When Theodore Roosevelt termed Tom Paine a "dirty little atheist" he surely spoke from lack of understanding. It was a stricture, an inaccurate charge of the sort that has dimmed the greatness of this eminent American. But the true measure of his stature will yet be appreciated. The torch which he handed on will not be extinguished. -- Thomas Alva Edison (from here)
