Stop taxpayer funding of the ACLU

32,692 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.

    Hillary Clinton, the most unlikable, dishonest, phony, incompetent, Democratic 2016 presidential candidate in U.S. political history, lost because she did not connect with the American people, her untrustworthy regarding her thousand deleted emails, her abortion fanaticism, calling Americans deplorable, selling herself with I am a woman, I am the wife of Bill Clinton, I defended my husband’s infidelities, I support “open borders” and I deserve to win so, “Why aren’t I 50 points ahead?" in the polls, was not enough to win the presidential election. The liberal biased mainstream media was on her side, had hundreds of celebrity endorsements, had an army of wealthy donors, spend more money than any presidential candidate in history, and yet she lost. Can you believe that? Hillary Clinton lost the easiest most winnable election in modern American political history. And it's her own fault, no one to blame but her. What a waste of time and money ($1.2 billion), hope you wealthy donors, Democratic supporters, and uninformed Clinton voters are happy, as you voted for a LOSER.
