ACLU Cheers Election Results

Crossposted from
Stop The ACLU

So, America voted for change? They should be careful what they ask for because
they will get it. For those that voted or stayed home in order to send the
Republicans a message on election day...congratulations! Your all important
"lesson" will now backfire in your face. You just cut off your nose to spite
your face. Not only have you helped to give both Houses over to the left, put
Nancy Pelosi in as the Speaker of the House, and completely destroyed any chance of getting a Constitutionalist majority
in the Supreme Court, but groups like the ACLU seem to think this election was a mandate for their
Look, you can't say we didn't warn

Yesterday voters nationwide rejected candidates who failed to uphold
civil liberties and rejected ballot initiatives that undermine fundamental
freedoms of all Americans.

"American voters have reinvigorated our system of checks and balances essential
to stopping the abuse of power," said Anthony D. Romero, American Civil
Liberties Union Executive Director. "Voters finally had enough of the 109th
Congress that repeatedly rubber-stamped legislation that violates our basic
rights. Voters also rejected many state ballot initiatives designed to restrict
civil liberties and meddle in our personal lives. The 110th Congress should take
note - voters rejected political scare tactics and government power grabs in
favor of civil liberties and policies that keep us safe and free."

Ah, the old "Safe
and Free" banner!
Since when did the ACLU care about us being "safe"? So
now the ACLU is promoting itself as a champion of both safety for our citizens
and of freedom. What a joke! When 9-11 occurred what measures did the ACLU take
to ensure our safety? None, zip, nada. This organization has done nothing to
ensure our safety; in fact it has chosen to sue our government on behalf of
terrorists outside of their legal jurisdiction while they were
located in prisons on foreign soil.

They have since then demanded that the government release and make public top secret security information
regarding not only the activities of our military, but also that of our intelligence forces. They have also initiated one lawsuit after another against the government to stop the searching of
individuals for security purposes in mass transit situations, and to stop the
government from detaining and questioning or interrogating individuals who have
ties or contact with known terrorist individuals and organizations. That is
just naming their actions off the top of my head. The fact is that the ACLU is making America less safe.

If what the ACLU means by political scare tactics are the warnings about the NSA surveillance program being
put into jeopardy and other liberal techniques of surrender and stupidity then I must disagree. Perhaps the
American people fell for the scare tactics of groups like the ACLU. It isn't a
scare tactic to state the truth about the threats we face from our enemies, and
the threats still remain. The beat goes on.

In several congressional races voters rejected the strategy to paint
national security as a polarizing issue. In Ohio, incumbent Senator Mike DeWine
was defeated. DeWine sponsored legislation that condoned the president's
warrantless wiretapping program.

Looks like that is exactly what the ACLU is saying. America voted against
effectively listening in our enemies plotting to destroy us. "Safe and Free"
once again. Pundits and talking heads take wasn't about Iraq, the
ACLU say it was civil liberties stupid!

As a non-partisan organization, the ACLU takes no official position
in any race for elected office.

....except when they want to. Then they take out full page political ads opposing candidates that
they do not like. They didn't hide the fact they wanted a Democratic
controlled Senate to kill the NSA program.

"The American people have spoken," said Caroline Fredrickson,
Director of the ACLU Washington Legislative Office. "The lame-duck session
should not be used to ram through proposals that the American people have
clearly rejected. The rule of law has been seriously compromised over the past
five years, and lawmakers must now seek to reaffirm our commitment to
fundamental freedoms."

Oh, that isn't the message you meant to send by staying home and pouting over
overspending and the lack of immigration reform? Well, that is the message the left received as you
handed them the power to speak on behalf of the majority. Their beloved ACLU
says you clearly rejected the kind of proposals they wouldn't like. You wanted
immigration reform? Ha! You just kissed that goodbye to hell. Say hello to

As Ace says so

"Punishing" politicians doesn't make sense when you wind up enacting
the very policies that caused you to want to lash out in the first

Sure, the GOP are to blame for their many mistakes but the reaction to that
was up to the individual voters at the end of the day. It looks like some
Conservatives decided to punish themselves by punishing the GOP. The left's
voting I can understand. What doesn't make sense to me that so many were
willing to shoot themselves in the foot by empowering and emboldening the very
party that will make sure the policies they were protesting continue and the ones they want will never happen. Well, the
fight continues and now it we just have to fight that much harder.
