Pro to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
"In my view, the ACLU and the plaintiffs are entirely right to have brought the suit [aimed at curbing the FBI's expanded spy powers granted in the USA PATRIOT Act]. Americans should not have to worry that the FBI is rifling through their personal belongings - learning what clubs we belong to, what charities we give to, and what books we read."
Experts Individuals with PhDs and JDs or equivalent advanced degrees in fields relevant to the ACLU. Also top-level government officials (such as foreign leaders, US presidents, Founding Fathers, Supreme Court Justices, members of legislative bodies, cabinet members, military leaders, etc.) with positions relevant to the ACLU.
