Pro to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
"The ACLU exerts a gravitational force that pulls America towards its ideals. It provides a living embodiment of America's constitutional values. It prods the conscience, tugs on the heartstrings, spurs the democratic ambitions and goads the collective memory of the mass of right-thinking American people. It even gives its detractors something principled and meaningful to complain about. How could anyone fail to love the ACLU?"
