This is something that I believe strongly in. I believe in our system of justice and government. I don't mean that I think it isnt' corrupted by big business and wealthy interests. It is. I don't mean that I approve of the Anti-Christ and his adminstration of greed and lies. I do not. I don't mean that I think we should invade nations based on a hearsay guised as military intelligence. We should not. I don't mean that I believe that those in prison have no rights. Every American has rights. I don't mean that I believe you're guilty because you've "convicted". Even our system is imperfect.
What I do mean is that I believe the guiding principles and ideals upon which our nation was founded are among the very best in history. Among these ideals is the cornerstone of our nation, the Constitution. Those rights guaranteed are supreme among ideals. And IT IS THE SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND.
The 4th Amendment has been interpreted time and time again to mean that a warrant shall be based upon probable cause and by a magistrate or judge. A warrant is needed to wiretap any US citizen. Now the Anti-Christ and his minions have now all but declared that this Amendment doesn't apply to them. Imagine, the mis-leader of this nation declaring that he can usurp the ultimate law of the land. He is breaking the law and yet the right-wingers will simply say it is needed for "national security". God bless those protesters above for busting in on Gonzales when he was trying to defend usurping the Constitution.
Is it a hassle to get a warrant? A bit but not as much of a hassle as it used to be. Warrants can be issued pretty much over the phone. With the click of a button, an email or a template for a warrant can be sent and signed within minutes. If you are already at the point where you can't wait a few minutes for a warrant, chances are you've alredy been listening and any evidence at that point might not be admissible in court.
As flawed as our justice system is, it is the best in the world. I believe firmly in the principle that we, as a society, would rather let a 100 guilty go free so that an innocent man is set free rather than imprison 100 guilty at the expense of one innocent man being in prison. When we override the basic principles of our justice system, we show that we have no faith in it no matter the situation. The Anti-Christ in the White House and his evil horde have shown the world they have no faith in our system of justice and they do not believe in the supreme law of our great nation.
