Not unless you say something that triggers ECHELON (a Pres. Clinton project).
Cute lie. ECHELON began in the early 60's. Spin on little top. Ignore reality.

The right to privacy has been derrived from a series of interpretations of several different amendments, and then joining thier meanings to imply the right to privace. Since nowhere in the Constitution does the word "privacy" even exist. I'm not saying that I disagree with these interpretations, just that they're only interpretations, nothing more.
But this thread has gone through all that already...so I'm not gonig to start again :thumbsup:
Thanks for the link though, I did enjoy reading through it.
Oh, then that an easy question to answer.

The constitution was created to spell out the rights given to the federal government. And it's clearly understood and accepted that the federal government has no power if it weren't spelled out in the constitution.
So the constitution is about what the government can not do. Not what people can do.

So yes, the exact words privacy is not mentioned. Doesn't mean that people do not have rights to it. It means that the federal government is prohibited from limiting privacy.

Well no, why would you care if the freedoms your Founding Fathers fought tooth and nail for get trampled underfoot? I mean, you only love your country, not what it stands for.

If you don't know from my posts here, then I feel no need to fill you in.
At least I have the conviction to stand by my beliefs, unlike some around here who just blather on and on and on about every side of every topic without taking any side.

You claim to be proud of your country and yet unconcerned when the principles upon which it was founded are threatened.

I strongly believe that most people are full of crap, does that count?

The Founding Fathers believed in slavery, but I'm pretty happy that it's gone.
Women can vote now too.

Maybe all the principles that this country was founded on weren't all that they were cracked up to be and should be examined and modified as the world changes.

Sure.
Whatever you say.
