Have you guys noticed there's an http://aclu.meetup.com ??? Let's start organizing local meetups in our own states put pressure on locally elected officials. There's also http://bordc.meetup.com (Bill of Rights Defense Committee)

To be honest I do not support everything the ACLU does. I think the ACLU could pick their fights better. Supporting MBLA was a bad move, but I am in total support against torture and the Patriot Act.

Even if I don't agree with everything, I think we should all be able to work together on what is important. Defeating torture and the Patriot Act.

I have been handing out flyers over S. 1959 Violent Radicalized Homegrown Terrorist Prevention Act. This amendment to the Patriot Act will open the door to a crack down on free speech on the Internet.

People need to know this bill is in the Senate. The mainstream media is not telling people about this.
