I can't defend the people that worked in these two ACORN offices in Baltimore and Brooklyn. It's pretty much indefensible. I also can't defend ANY tax money going to this organization.
I will defend the other works that ACORN has done in the inner-city to educate citizens about their rights. They've stopped the abuse of police power by telling citizens in many cities that they do not have to consent to unwarranted searches and be bullied into letting police into their houses.
They have worked side-by-side many libertarians educating citizens on their natural rights which government should be protecting, not infringing.
Like I said, I can't defend the indefensible. I will defend what I know of ACORN and much of what they do this country needs.
