    So I guess all of the men and women in uniform who have sworn to defend that little archaic document (including the 4th amendment in its entirety), against all enemies foreign and domestic, are doing so under false pretense.  All it takes is a little bit of threat of danger and we throw it all out for convenience.  Not my way of doing things and not the principles I put my life on the line for while I wore the uniform of my country.  For me, taking the oath of enlistment and my commissioning oath was a serious thing.  I meant that I would sacrifice my life if necessary for certain principles.  The 4th amendment, as written, was one of them.  The NSA surveillance, whether under Bush, Obama, or anyone else violates the constitution, and we need to know when our government is doing illegal activities.  The NSA/FISA court does not have the authority to violate the constitution.  NO ONE DOES!!!
