This morning on my way to work, I heard an advertisement from Senator McCaskill's office regarding the ACLU's new "Restoring the Constitution Act," which allegedly is designed to restore certain constitutional rights which were disregarded by the USA PATRIOT Act. Here is my response:
"Dear Senator McCaskill:
This morning on my way to work, I heard your advertisement for the "Restoring the Constitution Act." I am leery of supporting any bill sponsored by the ACLU; I do not trust any entity which sues people strictly for revenue, especially when they specialize in suing the Boy Scouts of America. However, I would be willing to support the Restoring the Constitution Act, with the following caveats: 1. I must restore rights to all American citizens, without special regard for certain groups as the ACLU is often wont to do. 2. It must restore the entire Bill of Rights, including: a. The right to Free Speech, over political correctness and government censorship b. The right to Freedom of Religion, over the idea of freedom *from* religion c. The right of the individual to keep and bear military-grade firearms (as would be carried in a well-regulated militia), over bans such as H. R. 1022."
