American Civil Liberties Union
“So long as we have enough people in this country willing to fight for their rights, we’ll be called a democracy.” -- ACLU founder Roger Baldwin
What is the American Civil Liberties Union?
What are we all about?
The U.S.A .P.A.T.R.I.O.T. Act
The U.S.A. P.A.T.R.I.O.T. Act allows the government to invade our privacy if they think that we are involved with terrorism. We should not allow this to happen because stalking us and watching our every move is clearly unsuccessful. There are still terrorist threats and attacks that have happened since 9/11. Although they weren't as severe as 9/11, the Patriot Act is not preventing terrorist activity from occurring. Therefore, it is pointless and should not exist.
Rand Paul Against Drones
Political figure Rand Paul is against the government using technology to spy on us. He believes that it invades our privacy and violates our rights. His idea supports the ACLU's idea of protecting the people's rights before protecting our country. We need to make sure that the government does not use drones because they spy on us during our every day lives which does protect our country, but doesn't consider our individual rights.
The No-Fly List
The No-Fly List bans possible criminal suspects from flying on the same plane as other people. We are strictly against this because it invades the rights of the people. The 9/11 attack involved planes being hijacked, which is why the No-Fly List exists. Although it was made to prevent something as tragic as the 9/11 attacks to happen again, it still invades the muslim's personal rights, and they do not deserve that.
The Number Gets Bigger
Each year, more and more people's rights are violated due to the No-Fly List.
Terrorist Security Administration
The Terrorist Security Administration is the group that came up with the No-Fly List.
Barack Hussein Obama
