First you folks need to actually read the Constitution and the amendments. Collecting information is specifically allowed in the constitution.
Once again, the Constitution does NOT support collecting private information. Though the 4th amendment doesn't specifically say "the right to privacy", it has always been interpreted that way by the Supreme court.
I've shown a couple of cases supporting the above statement.
Now, you want to go off on a slippery slope. Not playing this time.
When I send an email to one specific person, that is a private interaction. The Fourth Amendment guarantees me that no government entity will read that. By the feds monitoring cell phones and emails, they are breaking the law of this land, the Constitution. I don't care what laws these traitors put in place, they don't count if they interfere with the Constitution. The Constitution was put in place to prevent the tyranny that has been creeping in the last hundred years. These liars had to take an oath to uphold the Constitution, and they've lied.
