This is what happens when an informed citizen heads to a town hall debate. House Representative Jeff Miller was asked, in Navarre, FL, if the rights of American citizens had expanded, reduced or remained about the same under such laws as the Patriot Act, the National Defense Authorization Act.
Representative Miller asked for some clarification, and the moderator explained that he was asking about the allegations that a citizen can be detained without a warrant and without habeas corpus.
Miller said that the NDAA does not allow the government to detain American citizens indefinitely.
Someone in the audience who knew better, shouted "liar!" And that is an informed citizen.
