Since Obama came into "power" there have been more law suits than ever before. What does that tell you?
Twana, You found more nails and a bigger hammer>>> Great day to strenthen the Platform..!!!Ron
I really don't know what to think about this one.
I do know this. We have GOT to get the left out of power if we are to save this republic!
Thank you, THIS gives me hope that the left is not winning. If ACLU is still publicly funded, it should be abolished. It does not stand for anything for America just the left.
Slow down on the partisanship! We're really willing to give away all of our rights just because the other party is losing?
How do we know that those were actual terrorists, rather than someone who just looks funny? Every Tea Partier should want proof that American's rights are not being violated. We are the "small government" movement, not the "jail and torture everyone" movement.
Woah my butt!!! Has nothing to do with partisanship!!! Has everything to do with right or wrong!!!
Obviously you are on the wrong side here, Asecondopinion! You wanna defend ACLU? That tells me you are on the WRONG side! You defend a man we know is a terrorist? You say waterboarding is torture? Do you also believe that terrorist are freedom fighters that are just victims of us?
Firstly, we know who told us this man was a terrorist. It is the government. The very government we accuse of fraud in Fast and Furious, Bailouts, Solyndra and the like. We must not really be expected to all of a sudden trust the government on this issue.
Secondly, of course waterboarding is torture. Even the CIA is not denying that waterboarding is torture. And of course the terrorists that perpetrated crimes against the American people should be punished. But not until we are allowed to see who these terrorists are, and try them in court. The biggest thing that you may be missing here, is that we don't really know who the government says is a terrorist. What if they pick you up, torture you, and say they won't release the pictures on you. Will you then be inclined to change your mind?
And in some cases, any conservative in their right mind would side with the ACLU. Just because an organization takes on positions on cases that conservatives disagree with, does not mean the organization is discredited. That would be like saying "since a local Tea Party was cited for sexual harassment and hate crimes, they are all racists." Same logic, different propaganda.
Asecondopinion you are off! Either you do not know the ACLU well and defend what you do not know OR you do know them and you believe just like them!
As John Stuart Mills, one of the greatest proprietors of Free Speech in America, wisely stated "An opinion has no value until it has been matched against an opposite opinion."
Instead of screaming at me that I am a traitor to the cause, not a true conservative, etc. Look at the facts I have presented. I have already been a featured speaker at the Northwest Ohio Conservative Conference. http://www.nwohioconservativeconference.com/ I know what I am talking about.
If you cannot answer to the facts and logic that has been presented in a balanced, non-rhetorical manner, then it may be time to re-examine the facts you have been told.
Asecondopinion seeing you are a supporter of the ACLU proves who you really are. It does not matter if someone else calls you a conservative. You actions/words speak louder than what a person wants to proclaim you to be. Maybe you should examine the ACLU!
An opinion pulled out of thin air instead of built upon fact is an opinion of the worst kind!
