I increased my monthly ACLU donation this morning!
Advertisements [?]
It felt great! I told the person I spoke to that my reason for the increase was due to the right wing's recent actions, including the Flag Amendment and the Marriage Amendment. I truly believe that the ACLU is part of the cure for the right wing fever that this country seems to be going through. Few things make me happier than hearing about hateful right wing ballot measures being knocked out by the ACLU in court! Things like that weaken the right wing; they spent all that time and money spreading hatred and got NOTHING out of it!! The far right wouldn't spread lies about the ACLU if they didn't see them as a major threat to their agenda. I encourage everybody to either make a donation or increase their donation to show your disgust with the radical right.

Regardless of whether we Democrats beat the Republicans in November, we can always weaken them by supporting the ACLU and similar groups. Remember the saying: "If you can't beat'em, hurt'em!" That will make it easier to beat the far right in the long run.
