I regarded myself as rather wise voting for Barack Obama after the presidency of a man whose knowledge of our Constitution was as great as his bravery in combat. George Bush so loved to be macho man as long as he had nothing to do with the macho part. So, along came Barack Obama and a new era of respect for the rule of law and order. Ha,ha. After five years of Obamacare, I do not refer to the health plan, but the surveillance plan, this nation has witnessed ongoing erosion of basic human rights stated in our Constitution. FINALLY! Yes FINALLY! A federal judge told the president it was time for him to take another look at the US Constitution. Judge Richard Leon told America the National Security Agency has nothing in common with our Constitution,and its policies would be declared unconstitutional.
“I cannot imagine a more indiscriminate and arbitrary invasion than this systematic and high-tech collection and retention of personal data on virtually every single citizen for the purposes of querying and analyzing it without prior judicial approvable. Surely, such a program infringes on that degree of privacy that the Founders enshrined in the Fourth Amendment.”
I hate to inform President Obama but during prior REAL emergencies such as fighting the greatest army in the world-German, that is,-we did not always follow the Constitution, but we never abused it in the manner of Bush and Obama–and Congress.
