Support Ron Paul's "American Freedom Agenda Act"

1 post in this topic

We need to reclaim ALL of the civil liberties ground we've lost in

the last seven years. And one bill would do exactly that. The lead

sponsor is Congressman Ron Paul, and it's titled, "The American

Freedom Agenda Act." <http://www.downsizedc.org/etp/campaigns/82 >

The ”American Freedom Agenda Act” is a bill . . .

The full text of this bill can be found on the Background page. This legislation will . . .

  • Repeal the “Military Commissions Act of 2006” and thereby restore the ancient right of habeas corpus and end legally sanctioned torture by U.S. government agents
  • Restore the ”Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act” (FISA) and thereby outlaw warrantless spying on American citizens by the President of the United States
  • Give Congress standing in court to challenge the President's use of "signing statements" as a means to avoid executing the nation's laws
  • Make it illegal for government agents to kidnap people and send them abroad to be tortured by foreign governments
  • Provide legal protection to journalists who expose wrong-doing by the Federal government
  • Prohibit the use of secret evidence to label groups or individuals as terrorists for the purpose of criminal or civil sanctions

This one simple 3-page bill will . . .

  • Restore basic Constitutional protections
  • Empower Americans to support human rights, democracy, and the rule of law in the world at large free from the stink of hypocrisy
  • Protect Americans and American soldiers from blowback by foreign powers in retaliation for our government's transgression of America's most hallowed principles

If ever there was a bill that all Americans should support, it is this one. Please use the form below to send a message to your elected representatives asking them to co-sponsor the “American Freedom Agenda Act.”

Sending a message is easy. You can write as much or as little as you want. And we start with a brief sentence or two for you. We do this so that . . .

  • The most important point of this campaign is not lost on the Congressional office.
  • No one can hijack our system for a purpose inconsistent with Downsizing DC.
  • But you can still personalize the rest of your message — explain why you were motivated to send this message, or what you believe is the most compelling argument in support of your position.

Are these messages read even with so many folks sending a common first line? You bet they are! Congress cannot afford not to pay attention. And many DC Downsizers get responses from their Congressmen. If you receive a letter, feel free to share it with us at comments@DownsizeDC.org.

  • If you've used our Educate the Powerful SystemSM before just enter your user email address and password, and hit GO. You'll be taken to a screen where you can add your own comments to the message to your elected representatives.
