This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.
Let's just understand one simple thing: NO ONE has the lawful authority to pass any law, rule or regulation that contravenes or contradicts the Constitution of the United States.
The Constitution is THE SUPREME LAW and over-rules or supercedes any other law.
The NDAA does NOT nullify the Bill of Rights.
Quite the contrary, the Constitution renders the NDAA null and void from its inception.
Likewise the "Patriot Act" and a host of other disgraceful pieces of "legislation."
Congress doesn't have the authority to over-rules the Constitution.
These acts may have the color of law, but they are not, in fact, legally binding on anyone.
There is a difference between having the lawful authority to do something, and simply having the power to do something by force.
A mugger has the power by the threat of force to make you give up your wallet. That doesn't mean he has the lawful authority to take it.
A rapist may exert power over you by the threat of force and make you surrender your body. That doesn't give him the lawful authority to do it.
A murderer may have the power to kill you, but that doesn't give him the lawful authority to do so.
You have the natural and legal right to protect yourself, to resist unlawful actions even if you have to use lethal force to do it.
The law doesn't require you to meekly render your money, your body or your life to any thug who demands it.
Why should you"non-violently" (that is to say "passively") cooperate with any criminal who assaults you when you have the means to resist?
It's a simple equation:
Cooperate with a mugger, and you get mugged.
Cooperate with a rapist and you get raped.
Cooperate with a murderer and you get murdered.
Cooperate with an oppressor.....
Do the math.
