Statement Introducing the American Freedom Agenda Act of 2007
Ron Paul Speech to Congress
October 15, 2007
Madam Speaker, today I am introducing a comprehensive piece of legislation to restore the American Constitution and to restore the liberties that have been sadly eroded over the past several years.
This legislation seeks to restore the checks and balances enshrined in the Constitution by our Founding Fathers to prevent abuse of Americans by their government. This proposed legislation would repeal the Military Commissions Act of 2006 and re-establish the traditional practice that military commissions may be used to try war crimes in places of active hostility where a rapid trial is necessary to preserve evidence or prevent chaos.
One market technician who gets it is at:
But he seems to consider Ron Paul and his supporters "Moon Bats".
He has a petition to fix the fallout of the mortgage mess:
I think Rep. Paul would support it, and could introduce it as an Act, but I don't have any way of contacting the campaign. I think supporters of this petition and supporters of Ron Paul should be on the same page.
Cute video of Tucker Carlson, Pat Buchanan, and Bill Press talking about Ron.
Also, Howard Fineman says Ron Paul WILL be a factor...in fact, Howard is due to call me tomorrow. Why I haven't talked to him since I Chaired my town for Pat! (Pat's a fun guy!)
One of the great advantages of living in Boston is that many great writers come by to speak about their books at the Harvard Coop. Tonight I went to listen to Naomi Wolf discuss her latest book The End of America - A Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot. If you read only one book between now and the election, this is the book. Even during a period when I am so busy and cannot seem to find the time nor the attention to finish any books, I devoured this one in two days.
While listening to her speak, she sounded exactly like Dr. Paul. "We need to restore the rule of law and get back to the Constitution," were her exact words. Below is a video of talk she gave in Seattle just a few days ago which mirrors closely the talk she gave this evening. Tonight however, she made a point that Ron Paul had just introduced the American Freedom Agenda Act, and noted how very important this piece of legislation is.
After her talk, as I was speaking to her about Ron Paul and the Daily Paul, the strangest thing happened:
Hot off the presses is Naomi Wolf's latest blog posting titled, Finally, Action! Ron Paul Introduces Bill to Defend Constitution!
Here is a snip, but please read the whole thing:
On Monday, Rep. Ron Paul, the outsider Republican presidential candidate who has long upheld these values and who was an early voice warning of the grave danger to all of us of these abuses, introduced the AFA's legislative package into Congress. (The mainstream press has an irrational habit of disparaging outsider candidates -- as if corrupt money and machine endorsements equal seriousness of purpose -- even though the Founders hoped that the system they established would lead citizens, ideally those unembedded in the establishment, to offer their service to the nation.) It is the American Freedom Agenda Act of 2007 [PDF], and you should read it in its entirety: just as accounts of the recent abuses send chills down your spine, this beautifully argued document feels historic and has the ring of great power to correct great injustice.
Thank you, Naomi Wolf.

Just a reminder about the debate. Might also be a good idea to politely write and ask them to give Ron Paul more questions, better questions and equal time to answer; questions on Federal Reserve and Internet Regulation for example.
Since the beginning of the campaign the mainstream media has done their best to ignore, dismiss and marginalize Ron Paul while those of us involved in the grassroots movement in support of Dr. Paul have seen his support spread like wildfire through the internet. But as important as the internet is, the fact of the matter is that most of America gets their news and views from the mainstream media. As such the general public has been confined to a dark room as far as information on Ron Paul goes.
The most diligent of the people in this room have caught glimpses through the keyhole or under the door when the light on Ron Paul is at its brightest, such as in the debates. But most inside the room just go bumping around cursing the dark but not really working at seeing where they are going.
But now Ron Paul is pushing open the door of the mainstream media.
With permission and by request, I am reprinting this excellent piece written by Joseph Baca of NH. Enjoy!
Most interesting article on the net today is from NewsMax and you can find it here:
I've been tracking traffic patterns of the 2008 Election on Hitwise.com, a company that tracks 25,000,000 surfers to over 1,000,000 websites (now that's a TRUE poll sampling). I'd like to mention that HitWise.com is no 'crumb' company. They were recently purchased by the credit giant, Experian, for a mere $240M dollars, and boast clients like Honda, Heinz, Panasonic, and Virgin.com to name a few.

The next Nationwide Rally is on the weekend of Oct 27/28. This is the last weekend in October to generate a BIG boost in Ron Paul donations.
There's nothing to register for to be part of it. Simply:
I just got off the phone with a reporter from Bloomberg in DC who is writing a big story on Dr. Paul's surging popularity. It is always fun, (and then frustrating) to talk to these reporters. So far I've spoken with Wired, the Boston Globe and now Bloomberg. (The Wall Street Journal emailed while I was away on vacation). What strikes me is that I can talk to reporters for half and hour or 45 minutes on the phone, and then when I get off the phone, I think of all these things I should have said! Drats!
