Rights & Liberties : How we can take the Constitution back from the brink (Alternet)

The American Freedom Campaign is designed to be an online hub for Americans concerned about the country’s democratic system and who are ready to act to protect the Constitution. The campaign is asking all Americans to take the American Freedom Pledge to “fight to protect and defend the Constitution.” The pledge begins, “We are Americans, and in our America we do not torture, we do not imprison people without charge or legal remedy, we do not tap people’s phones and emails without a court order, and above all we do not give any president unchecked power.”

“The campaign is also asking all presidential candidates to take the pledge as well. “This campaign responds to the unconstitutional behavior of the current administration,” said Wolf. “Therefore, our first order of business is to get commitments from those running to be the next occupant of the White House. The American people need to know that executive power will not be similarly abused in the future.”
