New Hampshire Debate: Romney defers to “our constitutionalist”

with one comment

In a question about whether the Griswold case, a US Supreme Court Decision that interpreted the US  Constitution to imply the right to privacy, which was later used as the bases for Roe v. Wade, Mitt Romney was unable to determine if states would have the right to ban contraceptives, and deferred the question to Ron Paul, calling him “our Constitutionalist” among them.

The question sparked an unusual opportunity for sophistication in the debate. It also exposed the front runners for not having much to say about it. “Ugg…Roe. v. Wade bad,” was the extent of the conversation for most of them. Paul, on the other hand, cited the Fourth Amendment as justification for the Griswold ruling. Mitt sidestepped the question with jokes about not wanting to outlaw contraception.

Huntsman endorses National Defense Authorization Act

leave a comment »

In a CBS Boston interview (WBZ Newsradio), Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman endorsed the National Defense Authorization Act, the Patriot Act on steroids. “I would have signed it,” said Huntsman, but “in practice” he would work to ensure Due Process.

When asked if he would close Guantanamo Bay, Huntsman said he would deal with it as quickly as possible, but added “You need a holding facility somewhere,” and, “I’d find one somewhere else.”

A younger-sounding caller asked Huntsman what he believed was the biggest problem with the Republican Party. The former Utah governor identified the “isolationist streak” among the Republican Party. Huntsman said he would be against withdrawing military, trade, or “values” — whatever the devil that means — from our present, international stance, in order to continue to “make the world a better place.”

Obama’s National Defense Authorization Act makes the “Patriot Act” look benign

leave a comment »

While you were out on New Year’s Eve, President Obama signed the “National Defense Authorization Act,” granting law enforcement the power to, “indefinitely detain any terror suspect captured on U.S. or foreign soil, even if that person is a U.S. citizen,” said the Wall Street Journal. The Act, like the “Patriot Act,” provides that individuals detained as “terrorists” need not receive Due Process.

In addition to targeting U.S. citizens with indefinite detention without trial, the Act trumps the historic, “Posse Comitatus” Act, which was formed after the Civil War to limit the ability of law enforcement to use U.S. military to assist in enforcing U.S. law. As of December 31, 2011, the military may be called to assist in the management of protests and other forms of civil disobedience.
