What I Dislike Most About The ACLU

There are many many reasons to dislike the ACLU, but here are three that really irk me...

* The ACLU doesn't even really seem to be concerned with what their stated goals are. They claim to be champions of the constitution, yet in order for them to take up someone's cause they must first espouse the ACLU brand of politics and religion which pretty much is just straight up liberal socialism. They will not take up your cause if you are a Christian or a conservative, in fact most likely they will fight against you. I think that somewhere in their copy of the constitution it says that Christians and their beliefs are to be erased from the public sector, a concept that would have infuriated the founding fathers. For the ACLU it's freedom of religion..unless you happen to be one of those Christian kinds, then you are to be segregated from the general public. Also, the ACLU denies the very foundation of what this nation was built on. We left England because of people like the ACLU who were forcing their own brand of religion on the whole country. Humanism is that religion today, but the tactics are the same, squash anyone who isn't bowing at the alter of man himself. Everybody worships something.

* The AClU is actually trying to stop any effort to control the borders to our country. In what part of the constitution does it state that we must let in illegal aliens? I mean just which version of the constitution do they have over there and how much crack was the guy smoking that wrote it? Those that want to get into this country must go through the proper channels. It's a system that would be safe and possibly even reliable if we were able to implement it fully. Could it be that the ACLU needs the votes?

* Drugs. The ACLU wants to legalize drugs...all drugs. Ok, now we know that their version of the constitution is warped. What, did Jerry Garcia find it in the enchanted forest? The last thing we need is a country full of drugged out hippies driving cars, getting weapons, babysitting our children, and teaching our children. They deny that this is what will happen. But they are just straight up wrong about that. Drugs are illegal because they are dangerous, not just to the person using, but to those around that person as well. Just another warped cause that the ACLU champions.

Come on, do you really think if drugs are legalized everyone's gonna sprint down to the nearest dealer and load up? I don't think drug laws are preventing anyone from using them; we already have way too many drugged-out zombies. I don't see how it could get any worse. Drug laws are just filling up our prisons with millions of nonviolent offenders who aren't a threat to anyone.

Drug use is a victimless crime. If someone commits a crime while they're wasted on drugs, we already have law covering that. Nobody's trying to ban alcohol in order to crack down on drunk driving; they should use this same approach to all drugs. If someone commits a crime while they're wasted on something, I'd be in favor of tacking on an extra sentence.

Yes I do believe that more people will use drugs if they are legal. It goes without saying. A lot of people are turned off drugs only because of the fear of getting caught not because the drugs are bad.

You have it backwards. Many people are turned on to drugs because they are "taboo" and something they shouldn't be doing so they do them as to rebel against the system. Should they be legalized, the allure of their forbiddenness not only declines, but dissapears entirely.
