    Getting slammed by the ACLU elevates anyone a notch up in my book...

    "Ryan, the ACLU charges, has “almost uniformly harmful views on five key civil liberties issues”: immigration, gay marriage, abortion, waterboarding and voter ID laws" Sounds like ryan has the right pov on civil rights. Good reason to vote republican.

    Really?

    You're against freedom of speech?

    What about the 4th and 5th amendments?

    You know ACLU represented and helped Oliver North, you against him too?

    :upeyes:

    From the ACLU website,

    Gotta love the ACLU. They selectively protect constitutional rights, so long as the right coincides with their political beliefs.

    The thread should say,"ACLU endorses Ryan",because he'll get my vote.
    Those people at the ACLU just aren't as smart as they used to be anymore.

    Once in a while the ACLU accidently represents a just cause but in general and this case in particular a negative response from them is a validation that the Ryan is the right choice.
