What happened to the Forth Amendment?
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Sure I understand watching and monitoring people that are possible suspects in crimes or terrorist plots. I understand that some people many fit a profile and prompts the FBI and DHS to feel the need to monitor them. No problem with that… The problem is that if we are to keep and maintain a Federal Republic that the Constitution created and the Founding Fathers promised, then the government must follow the laws that had been set forth over 200 years ago.
What does that mean? Simple… If there isn’t enough evidence for a search warrant, then do the old fashion foot work to obtain one. Do the tailing of the suspect. Do the monitoring of their trash on trash day. Those are things that don’t require a search warrant. Then when they find what they need for a judge to sign a warrant then place the bugs and etc.
So what is the problem if you have nothing to hide? I have heard this before and asked in return, “If it doesn’t matter why did the Founding Fathers believe it was needed in the Forth Amendment?” It is really a simple reason. Before the Revolutionary War the the British Army at anytime were allowed to enter any home without cause and search for whatever they wanted to. No reason needed. This in turn meant no freedom or security in your own home. So why would you want to now give you a large portion of that freedom in place of false security?

News Story: Sunstein: Force broadcasters to air ‘diversity’ ads:
So, the government should force a private company to show ads… So when did this start? Last I checked the government can not restrict or force a person of private company to do anything they do not want to. This sounds more like something that we should to hear about in the former Soviet Union and not in this great country. But then again we didn’t have a socialist in the office until now, who by the way has made a czar for this and a czar for that. Oh and those czar have no, absolutely no checks and balances or any form of conformation in Congress. So that make me wonder where the hell our representation is at!! Isn’t part of the reasons why we had the revolutionary war, no representation in England so King George just did what ever he wanted to do until the colonist said enough!
