Why in the hell do we even have a Constitution and Bill of rights?

I mean, seriously. The government doesn't pay attention to them.

We're heading towards full retard.


It's been over 150 years since the invention of electronic communications, since they were invented the government still hasn't recognized that access to them should be just as protected as access to a handwritten document.

Not exactly the same thing. This isn't about documents, its about where you go on the internet. A warrant to follow someone has never been required, has it?

Some Republicans in favor are using the terrorist threats as fuel.

But you're not going anywhere, you're just compiling a list of resources you've read. The physical analogy isn't that you're visiting a bunch of stores and running around town, it's much more similar to getting a list of what library books you've checked out which I think does require a warrant.
