Has the president ever read the Constitution of the United States that he has sworn to uphold and protect?
President Bush again defended his program of warrantless surveillance Thursday, saying “there’s no doubt in my mind it is legal.” He suggested that he might resist congressional efforts to change or expressly endorse it.
“The program’s legal, it’s designed to protect civil liberties, and it’s necessary,” Bush told a White House news conference.
Let’s review: “Amendment IV – Search and seizure. Ratified 12/15/1791.
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.”
In other words, the government has no legal right to spy on you without cause.
Wake up! This is not a fight between Republicans and Democrats; it’s between the government and you.
