American Freedom Agenda Act
By Perry Willis
Change the political environment. Recruit more Downsizers. Share this message with others. Quote of the Day: "..the Bill of Rights does not come from the people and is not subject to change by majorities. It comes from the nature of things. It declares the inalienable rights of man not only against all government but also against the people collectively." -- Walter Lippmann Subject: Ron Paul's "American Freedom Agenda Act" Please ask your Congressperson and your two Senators to co-sponsor Ron Paul's "American Freedom Agenda Act." This bill would . . .
  • Repeal the “Military Commissions Act of 2007” and thereby restore the ancient right of habeas corpus and end legally sanctioned torture by U.S. government agents
  • 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
