Stop taxpayer funding of the ACLU

32,464 Signatures Goal: 50,000

WHEREAS, the American Civil Liberties Union (the ACLU) has shown itself to be hostile to religious expression by private citizens and the civil rights of people of faith; and WHEREAS, the ACLU has declared war on the Boy Scouts of America, the military of the United States, Christmas displays, public buildings that display the Ten Commandments, and many other American traditions; and WHEREAS, the United States Congress, roughly thirty years ago, passed a provision in United States Code section 1988 that requires taxpayers to pay attorneys in civil rights cases; and WHEREAS, the ACLU has abused that law to make untold millions of dollars simply by suing boy scouts, school children, military academies, cities and towns, with the goal of punishing any who dare to exercise their First Amendment right to religious freedom and expression; and WHEREAS, the vast majority of taxpayers do not want to be forced to pay the ACLU to sue their neighbors and friends in the ACLU\'s efforts to strip America of all signs of faith; and WHEREAS, the Establisment Clause of the First Amendment was not contemplated when USC section 1988 was passed; THEREFORE, the People of the United States call upon their Congress to amend USC section 1988 so that hostile special interest groups such as the ACLU can no longer be granted taxpayer money to attack Americans and their institutions. We, The People, call upon our elected representatives to amend USC section 1988 so that fees are not awarded to the ACLU or any other plaintiff in Establisment Clause cases. We wish for the Free Expression Clause to implicate at least the same financial incentives as attacks upon faith currently have.

    If the ACLU spent half of its money actually helping to get things done for people instead of suing over political correctness there might be a chance people would approve of their closed door actions. Its ridiculous the amount of money they blow through and sad how it could be used so much for the betterment of society. They in no way deserve to be taxpayer funded nor tax free. It's a situation that I am sure meant well but is now just sad. Why should we pay for their 'in your face
    positions.
