  •  That is not at all what it says (1+ / 0-)

    Nowhere does it say anything about government regulation.  Never have warrants been understood as necessary to support legislation.  Warrants are only necessary to enforce legislation.

    In any event, the warrant clause is separate and apart from the first clause.

    Your fanciful notions are unsupported by anything other than your say-so.  The notion that civil forefeiture statutes are unconstitutional is directly contradicted by decades if not centuries of constitutional case law.

      regulate.  Of course they can, but only outside of the rights protected by the Constitution.  There are many cases where the Supremes have held a prohibition unconstitutional because a prohibited means invading rights was used, and later upheld similar legislative regulatio9n by permitted means.

      Patriotism may be the last refuge of scoundrels, but religion is assuredly the first.

        simply does not protect a right to abortion.

          of every person to be free of state coersion absent breach of the peace.  An abortion is no n of the state's business unless the state is the Vatican.  We do not live there.

            when you find any case law supporting that proposition.  And also once you answer the question of who gets to determine what is and what is not a breach of peace.  (and why should that entity be vested with the power to make that determination).
