Republican Party Denounces NDAA

Last night, the Clark County Republican Party Central Committee in Nevada unanimously passed a resolution soundly denouncing the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2012, sections 1021 and 1022, and requesting immediate action against it by the Clark County Sheriff. These sections of NDAA 2012 include language that the Clark County Republican Party calls “blatant attacks on the United States Constitution, specifically Amendments 4, 5, 6, and 8 of our Bill of Rights”. In NDAA the federal government claims the right to detain American citizens indefinitely, without producing a search warrant.

The resolution passed last night calls for and requests the Clark County Sheriff, Douglas Gillespie to publicly state that Clark County is not a battlefield, as the NDAA declares, and that he will not enforce the imposition of martial law, absent a declaration of war duly approved by Congress. In addition, the resolution requests the Sheriff to publicly state the he will not aid or participate in the unconstitutional arrest, detainment, torture, assassination, or extraordinary rendition of any United States citizen in Clark County, Nevada.

In short, the resolution asks Clark county sheriff Gillespie to live up to the oath he swore to protect and defend the United States Constitution.

The resolution also states, “a primary concern of the Clark County Republican Party is the constitutional rights and freedom of every American citizen in Clark County, Nevada.”

After reading the resolution out loud before the body, County Whip Jordan Ross leapt to the floor to make an impassioned plea for the item as a voting member of the party. After a short discussion the resolution was passed unanimously.

This meeting of the Clark County Republican Party included the election of a new Republican Party Chair and Vice Chair, as well as additional Executive Board seats, and other senior officer positions. Cindy Lake was voted in as the CCRP Chair, with Carl Bunce filling the Vice Chair slot. These seats had been vacated by officials upset at the recent and great increase in vocal and opinionated new members standing for the cause of liberty.

    Check the voting record of all these liars. The NDAA would never got off the ground in the first place if they had not been paid royally for their corrupt vote. Always promise everything in an election year. Texas just came out with the same GOP bull, and Kay Bailey Hutchenson and Conesco but voted for this, as did the rest. People need to check voting records.

    Yes, yes, they voted it in, but let’s not denounce those who have come to their senses. It’s a bit encouraging, a small bit, but a bit.

    @ DeAnna…you need to realize that the Clark County Republican party and the Nevada republican party have both been taken over by Ron Paul followers and they have always opposed NDAA. Common sense is beginning to take hold in the Republican party.

    oh wait, i forgot…now you’ll try to make a state issue since its was signed into law by the prez. But YOU bunch on idiots came up with the stupid idea in the FIRST place.

    Why did they vote for it in the first place? A Republican and Democrat came up with this. The entire Congress voted on it. Now the Repubs denounce it? Why so they could say they are first to change their mind (holy crap Mitt Romeny’s constant flip flopping must be contagious. Absolutle stupidity. Why not go back in Congress and REMOVE it all together. You voted it in for christ sakes! **Roll eyes**

      Ron Paul was ALWAYS against it, and his supporters are trying to push his views in the GOP. This is a GOOD thing.

      DeAnna you are sorely uneducated. If you weren’t so lacking in the brain department you might would know that groups of true conservatives are beginning to take back local and state party apparatuses across the nation which have been against unconstitutional legislation like NDAA among other things. They are fighting for your individual freedoms even though you love the rat cage you live in. Sad story really.
