Reality or Nothing Act

Please, let's get this passed ASAP.

Senator Happywarrior, I'd like to offer a friendly Amendment :

Quote
Reality or Nothing Act

1)  The organization Reality or Nothing shall hereby by listed by the Atlasian federal government as a terrorist organization.

2)  The Atlasian government shall use whatever reasonable means they can to stop Reality or Nothing from committing any further acts of terrorism, while respecting everyone's individual rights.

Protecting our country against terrorism is important, but I don't want this to be an Atlasian Patriot Act.

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy
until they can no longer be recognized.

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

This is what you ask. Expect
no answer but your own.

Thats why I said reasonable means however I will accept it as friendly.

Obviously, the bombing is heinous but I'm a bit concerned about Clause 2...

Well, there is a difference between being reasonable and respecting individual rights. I guess Cheney&co considered torture a perfectly reasonable mean to fight terrorism. Wink

"reasonable AND lawful means" would be a good way of writing it.

I support this. If I have to do this formally, I withdraw my initial Amendment.

The 24 hour objection period passed with no objections, therefore the bill has been amended.

I call this bill to a final vote.

Senators, please vote aye, nay, or abstain.

The vote is open until February 14th, 2011 at 5:20pm.
