The ACLU is a fraud. They ranked Bernie Sanders higher than both Gary Johnson and Ron Paul the last time I looked at it. That tells you something, because Bernie Sanders is a socialist and has no problems taking your money and redistributing it to others without your consent.

For example, if you're pro-life, you get dinged on your report card. Wonderful. How dare you tell a woman - or anyone - that they don't have a right to murder another human being. I guess if you're murderer, your score on their report card goes up.

I wouldn't be surprised that voting against affirmative action and other collectivist types of legislation also gets you a ding on your report card too.

I saw this yesterday. Glad to

I loved the zero torches

I loved the zero torches Obama got for ending the surveillance state. Also, I apologize if someone posted these links yesterday, I just saw it today.
