Pro to the question "Is the ACLU Good for America?"
"I of course believe that the ACLU is good for America, even if I happen to disagree on occasion with some of the specific positions taken by the organization. It has, by and large, vigorously defended the civil liberties of unpopular minorities and thus provides a valuable 'pushback' against a government disinclined to ask questions about the legitimacy of its own (mis)conduct."
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.
