I have not posted in awhile but I thought this important and we should do what we can to help push this through.

Tell your U.S. Representative to co-sponsor the American Freedom Agenda Act

On October 15, 2007, Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) introduced the American Freedom Agenda Act of 2007 (H.R. 3835). This important piece of legislation would reverse many of the Constitutional abuses that have occurred over the past six years.

The American Freedom Agenda Act would bar the use of evidence obtained through torture; require that federal intelligence gathering is conducted in accordance with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA); create a mechanism for challenging presidential signing statements; repeal the Military Commissions Act, which, among other things, denies habeas corpus to certain detainees; prohibit kidnapping, detentions, and torture abroad; protect journalists who publish information received from the executive branch; and ensure that secret evidence is not used to designate individuals or organizations with a presence in the U.S. as foreign terrorists.

I am jazzed by this. For those who want to read it, here is the bill (http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=h110-3835)

You should not just "spam" your representative, "spam" the Committees on the Judiciary (http://judiciary.house.gov/CommitteeMembership.aspx), Armed Services (http://www.house.gov/hasc/list_of_members.shtml), Foreign Affairs (http://foreignaffairs.house.gov/members.asp?committee=full&subnav=subcommittees), and Select Intelligence. (http://intelligence.house.gov/MemberList.aspx) Also "spam" the House Leadership (http://www.house.gov/house/orgs_pub_hse_ldr_www.shtml). Send them messages from their House websites, send them real paper letters, get everyone you know to do the same. If we can swamp an MSNBC poll we can absolutely flood the House of Representatives. MAKE THEM KNOW WE ARE WATCHING!

Just emailed this to my congressman:

Dear Congressman Barrett,
A new litmus test has been issued to determine if a member of congress is deserving of reelection, and it is HR 3885, The American Freedom Agenda Act of 2007. Details of the bill can be found at:
http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=h110-3835
I strongly urge you to actively work for passage of this bill as promptly as possible.
I would appreciate a reply back from your office indicating if you plan to support or oppose this most important piece of legislation.
Your answer will determine if you will have the support of my friends, my family and myself for reelection.

Best Regards,
Eric Burke
Anderson SC

Please note, the American Freedom Campaign and the American Freedom Agenda are two different entities. AFC leans liberal and AFA leans conservative. It's a sign of how serious things are in this country that both groups have the same drift. The AFA is aimed at candidates pledging and of course the AFA Act being passed, and the AFC geared toward having both private citizens and candidates pledge.
