Dear liberty activist,
The Liberty Committee calls upon every U.S. citizen to support two pieces of legislation: The September 11 Marque and Reprisal Act of 2001 (H.R. 3076), and The Air Piracy Reprisal and Capture Act of 2001 (H.R. 3074). Both bills were introduced by Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) on October 10, 2001.
Congressman Ron Paul has said that Congress can do more to fulfill its constitutional obligation of providing for the defense of our sovereign nation, and granting President Bush the authority to grant letters of marque and reprisal to capture or kill Osama bin Laden and his fellow terrorists is exactly what Congress should do.
Article I, Section 8, Clauses 10 and 11 of the U.S. Constitution grants Congress the power to define offenses against the law of nations and to authorize the use of nongovernmental persons or entities to capture those who commit those offenses.
H.R. 3076 would grant President Bush the authority to issue letters of marque and reprisal for the capture of those responsible for the September 11 attacks upon the United States. H.R. 3074 supports this effort by updating federal statutes to include piracy of the skies along with piracy of the high seas as violations of the law of nations deserving such serious reprisal.
Americans want Osama bin Laden and the other terrorists responsible for the attacks upon our sovereign nation to be captured or killed and using letters of marque and reprisal will be another weapon of war that President Bush can use to make that happen.
American citizens can speed up the capture of bin Laden by telling their elected representatives to get this legislation moving now. Go to http://www.thelibertycommittee.org/lomar.htm to sign up for the campaign. We are demanding urgent action to solve a grave problem, and if you scroll down to Letter of Marque and Reprisal Bills: Questions and Answers, your questions will be answered. Congressman Ron Paul is scheduled to be a guest on Fox & Friends (Fox News television) tomorrow morning (Friday, Oct. 12) at 8:45 a.m. ET to talk about this important legislation.
Numerous radio talk show programs have been scheduled for us to tell the American public about how they can help. We're conducting a multi-step campaign to get the House and Senate to pass this legislation quickly. Please join us. Go to http://www.thelibertycommittee.org/lomar.htm today.

In Case you didn't know this, Uriel1975 started the discussion on FR and I volunteered to take point since I live in Ron's district.
