The American Freedom Agenda Act of 2007(H.R. 3835) was introduced by Congressman Ronald Paul. The bill has not been voted on yet.

The Act repeals the Military Commissions Act, prohibits the President from detaining any individual indefinitely as an unlawful enemy combatant with out proof or substantial evidence that the individual has engaged in active hostilities against the United States, and prohibits statements extracted from the defendant by torture or coercion to be used as evidence in court.

The bill also prohibits the use of secret evidence to make foreign terrorist designations.

Text of H.R. 3835

The bill isn't perfect, and doesn't modify the Patriot Act or the Protect America Act, but it's a lot better then what we have now.

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.
Please take a moment to encourage your U.S. representative to co-sponsor this legislation by filling out the information below.
