    The Constitution doesn't mention privacy and you've seen what they've been able to do with that.  Sure, the government can't search or seize without a piece of paper that they give themselves saying they can, but those pieces of paper aren't exactly hard to get, and they even have 72 hours to get a piece of paper after they've already searched and seized.

    Laws are written with long-winded and hair-splitting language for a very good reason: i.e. to leave no ambiguity.  People being what we are, I think a constitution should be written the same way.

    Domestic politics is the continuation of civil war by other means.
