You guys are obviously well behind the times...John Perry Barlow asked a lawyer about this way back when Phiber Optik and that bunch got busted, and was told that in terms of actual case law, the Fourth Amendment had effectively been repealed a long time ago.
Yes. I know. But, damn it, It still pisses me off every time they do that.
Then there's constant pressure to redefine the Constitution. That idiotic marriage ammendment proposal is the worst thing since prohibition. It will be a sad day when the Constitution is succesfully ammended (tax issues notwithstanding) for the sake of directly interfering with how people live their lives. I'm convinced we'll lose something truly important when our government becomes that blatant and gets away with it.
Yes. The rise of frivilous ammendments would mean something was broken, perhaps too broken to fix.
