ACLU vs NSA
Interesting how no one gives the ACLU credit for defending our civil rights and liberties

one of my good friends was a lawyer in the ACLU for years. I cannot begin to tell you how much hate he had to deal with.

Goes to show you how much discrimination there is out there and how ingrained it is and entrenched it is in our society
...the ACLU's main charter is defending the Bill of Rights
and that means basically defending the minority against the tyranny of the majority

We have freedom of speech, apparently it's implied in our constituition.

The reasoning behind not having one is that any government that would take away our rights when we don't have a bill of rights, won't care whether we have the bill or not.

Whether they are communist or not, that doesn't make them more right and/or wrong.
