EFF, the NRA of the 21st Century If you value your liberty, join the EFF.
join both Four boxes to be used in defense of liberty, in this order: Soap box, ballot box, jury box, ammo box.
The EFF only has two of those in its arsenal. The NRA has three. The people have all four, at least the ones that aren't too apathetic to drag themselves away from American Idol long enough to go vote...

said by pawpaw:The EFF is indeed an impressive org. They plod along at the foundational level fighting the good fight relatively uncelebrated. I respect that.

said by dnoyeB:Agreed. The EFF works in broad foundational concepts of law & society much like the ACLU and remain unconcerned with any one single industry or issue. NRA concerns are extremely narrow: guns.
