Politics vs. the Constitution

To expand a bit on the last posting, take this organization for example, forwarded by the Lonely libertarian’s mother:

Bill Of Rights Defense Committee

It sounds good. After all, who doesn’t want to defend the bill of rights? But just read through the website, and the focus here seems to be entirely anti-Patriot act and War on Terror concerns. There’s certainly a lot more to the Bill of Rights. Free speech and eminent domain issues come right to mind. And it makes the lonely libertarian wonder if groups such as these are really concerned about the Bill of Rights or if they’re really just using the Bill of Rights as a means to a political end.
