You're Kidding!

You don't like the way they protect your right to picket? To hold signs on public property? They're great on that!

Here's their Hawai'i page:

Then one for Florida (references the RNC--where some of us might have wanted to protest them for their treatment of delegates).

What if you want to protest in Washington (state)?

They aren't huge in the jury nullification arena, but here they are defending an activist from the FIJA (Fully Informed Jury Association):

This is what Ron Paul means about forming "coalitions" -- the ACLU is a great ally on many issues.

I won't give them money, because they aren't always on the right side (just as I don't support AARP because they lobby for Social Security), but it doesn't mean they aren't often useful.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/
