I have never called on the services of the ACLU, but always have cherished it as an organization with the highest standards doing one of the nation's most urgent jobs!

Your name has NEVER been besmirched and I trust implicitly the stands that you take and your methods for achieving and protecting civil liberties for ALL.

I try never to break the law, but it's reassuring to know that YOU are out there if my civil liberties are abridged. Thank you for your many works of good service.

One of the greatest Charities to support American civil liberties you will find. There are many people who find it fashionable to gripe about them and complain, however these people do not know civil law or their own Constitution. If these people knew anything about the Constitution, they would know what an outstanding charity the ACLU is. The ACLU will (and have) help ANYONE whose civil liberties are infringed upon. I applaud the work the ACLU does and am a proud supporter. I am honored to donate a portion of my paycheck every week to this great charity.

This group is the most UNAMERICAN that has very been.It makes the KKK look like babies, because it uses our own court system against the people of this Great Country.

The ACLU fails us when its web pages don't even mention numerous civil liberties issues that are beyond a narrow political agenda. The ACLU's complicity of silence in countless crimes against humanity will not be forgotten. Even a casual glance at our country reveals that the ACLU is losing their stagnant, reactionary fight to preserve freedom - increasing our freedom is never part of their plan. Our condition will continue to worsen until people stop putting all of their faith in organizations that sound good but don't have our best interests at heart.
