the opportunity to express their will at the polls this year.)

The ACLU has attacked Mt.
Soledad
memorial in San Diego since the the very beginning of Bush the
Elder's Administration because it includes a cross. This is just one of countless examples of the ACLU’s
seek and destroy mission to eliminate all religious symbols from public grounds.

vs. America

76% of San Diegans voted to save the Mt. Soledad National War Memorial from the
ACLU’s attack on behalf of a single atheist. That atheist, Jim McElroy was quoted as saying following the vote: “It still doesn't mean a damn thing," he said, according to the San
Diego Union-Tribune. “Voters should have never voted on it. It's a waste of
taxpayers' money.”

_______________________________________________________________

The reaction from ACLU-types will predictably be something like: “What is right
and Constitutional is not always popular.” Easy answer: What the ACLU does is
invent rights and distort the Constitution, which is why the ACLU is so
UNpopular. The ACLU has used dubious interpretations of law NEVER imagined by
our Founders with compliance from radical
judges
to push an agenda abhorrent to most Americans and indeed to the intent of the Constitution. Look no further than
the ACLU's pro bono defense of a website that advocates pedophilia and instructs its visitors in how to
rape children and evade prosecution. So...the ACLU considers encouraging
instruction on how to commit and get away with child rape a First Amendment
right...does anyone believe that the Founders would agree? Therefore, can't we
conclude that if the ACLU is so wrong on this, that it may be wrong on many
other things? Judge the evidence for yourself.
