"For the record, yes, I am a card-carrying member of the ACLU. But the more important question is, why aren't you, Bob? Now this is an organization whose sole purpose is to defend the Bill of Rights. So it naturally begs the question, why would a senator, his party's most powerful spokesman and a candidate for President, choose to reject upholding the Constitution?"
-- President Andy Shepard (Michael Douglas), The American President (Screenplay: Aaron Sorkin)

It's my time of the year to renew my membership.

If you haven't joined yet, you really need to ask yourself the question, "Why not?"

And yes, I do actually carry the card.

On a side note, it's well-known the cast and writer of this movie dovetails with "The West Wing". It's funny to see how the story dovetails. At one point, President Shepard bemoans the need to someday learn the value of a "proportional" military response. Which we get, as an episode of The West Wing.
