Keep Being A Little Bitch

You mean our right to privacy is getting raped in the arse in the name of national security..
Correct. I think Jefferson is a good enough person to speak for the *intent* of the Constitution. And really it's stare decisis, just like the Right to Privacy.
Then why is Madison called the Father of the U.S. Constitution? Madison was one of three writers of the Federalist Papers. Alexander Hamilton and John Jay being the other two. Even Alexander Hamilton would blanch at what the federal government has become.
Not even Jefferson's Declaration of Independence survived the committee (John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Robert R. Livingston, and Roger Sherman) without major changes. One of the most notable changes was from "life, liberty, and property" to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" because the Founding Fathers did not want slavery to have a legal basis in one of our founding documents.
No, no, no, no, NO.I'll say it again. Stare decisis. Additionally, it's been CONTINUALLY upheld by SCOTUS.
And lets not forget why this country was founded. Religious freedom, right? Why on Earth would the Framers want religion in government? That's exactly what they were getting away from England for.
How about coming up with a logical reason as to why then.
You haven't noticed that the larger the group of people, the dumber their ideas are? We are like sheep, in essence. How many people believe in what you believe in? A VERY small percentage...
Plus ... on the previous topic... isn't the Patriot Act the biggest privacy rape of this country?
