The ACLU and the Revolution

As Ron Paul said not that long ago, it's kind of sad that adhering to the Constitution is a revolutionary act in this day, but it is. I've been a member of the ACLU for a long time, and have been impressed with their steady hard work to maintain and regain our freedoms that are supposed to be assured by the Constitution, including but not limited to our right to not be subjected to unreasonable search and seizure, and our right if arrested to be informed of the charges and be given a speedy trial. I don't really believe that "rights" are inherent or "God-given", but I do believe that we can choose a system of government and abide by an agreement to honor certain rights for all people. It is our agreement that matters. Our system of government has been degraded to such an extent by the Bush regime that formerly unpolitical people are becoming political, because we no longer agree with the actions of our own government. We are trying to hold onto the shreds of our dignity as Americans, and to regain governmental adherence to the documents and principles that made this nation unique and great. From the link below you can join the ACLU if you're not a member, and there is an impassioned statement from one Colorado member about why his is giving his Shrub tax rebate to the ACLU instead of buying a new hunting rifle. Enjoy.
