In this time and age, with terrorism and an economy in the dump...
I really don't think that, in the US at least, there's a terrorism problem. We've had 2 problems in ~14 years, even less if you go farther back in history. I think to be a relevant charge terrorism would have to be more frequent. Car accidents kill around 32k people a year, so . For the couple trillion piddled away in Iraq / Afghanistan you could have given away self driving cars and saved ~450k people in addition to not having lots of vets with PTSD. So with the facts in mind, please don't list terrorism as a top 5 concern. On the economy you are correct. A real recovery, one for more than just the 1%, would be greatly appreciated.
The ACLU isn't for unlimited freedom, it's for maximizing freedom.
Unless that freedom involves anything nice like a Christmas tree or something else they have a Jihad against. Sometimes the ACLU does something I like, often they don't. To depend on them them for anything would be a mistake. The have no regard for anything historical in their Athiest Jihad, not unlike how the Taliban famously blew up the historical Buddha statues in Afghanistan as described here
Here's your maximizing freedom examples:
That seems like a stretch
To be fair we won't know if that's a stretch or not since the POTUS won't allow any citizens to read the trade treaties and those who can read the various treaties can't comment on them. I wouldn't rule it out at all. For example wouldn't corporations, who write these trade agreements, love to have a law against negative reviews or complaint oriented websites? That could fall under broad definitions of trade. Never take freedom for granted or figure that "they would never" when they happily would and increasingly are taking it away.
