no doubt.. your privacy.. are you guaranteed a right to privacy by the constitution?.. one of the biggest questions to come our way in a long time.
And will surely affect us for years to come.

does the government own you cradle to grave ....

instead of asking all these supreme court justices how they feel on Abortion? should have been asking them how they felt about privacy issues.

Our rights and freedoms have been removed by the ACLU, liberal judges and trial lawyers one case at a time. With the population growth and the advent of real time everything via computers and TV we have reached one world status. There are many countries like Russia, China and Iran that would love to see us lose what freedom we have now. Abortion is part of the issue because it is another front of attack on Christianity. Yes my opinion :rolleyes:

I do not mean to debate the abortion issue. I believe, that is a "State" issue, and should be decided on the State level. Along with prayer in school and other such issues. I'm talking about "our" government moving into things that should be a PRIVATE matter. And whether or not the constitution provides for that privacy or not. :peace:

And a Happy 4,000 posts to you Isaac. :cool:

Your right to privacy.. here's what ol' Congressmen Ron Paul has to say about it.

Quote:

Privacy and Personal Liberty

The biggest threat to your privacy is the government. We must drastically limit the ability of government to collect and store data regarding citizens’ personal matters.

We must stop the move toward a national ID card system. All states are preparing to issue new driver’s licenses embedded with “standard identifier” data — a national ID. A national ID with new tracking technologies means we’re heading into an Orwellian world of no privacy. I voted against the Real ID Act in March of 2005.

To date, the privacy focus has been on identity theft. It was Congress that created this danger by mandating use of the standard identifier (currently your SSN) in the private sector. For example, banks use SSNs as customer account identifiers because the government requires it.

We must also protect medical privacy. Right now, you’re vulnerable. Under so-called “medical privacy protection” rules, insurance companies and other entities have access to your personal medical information.
Financial privacy? Right now depositing $10,000 or more in cash in your local bank account will generate a federally-mandated report to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network at the United States Department of the Treasury.

And then there’s the so-called Patriot Act. As originally proposed, it:
  • Expanded the federal government's ability to use wiretaps without judicial oversight;
  • Allowed nationwide search warrants non-specific to any given location, nor subject to any local judicial oversight;
  • Made it far easier for the government to monitor private internet usage;
  • Authorized “sneak and peek” warrants enabling federal authorities to search a person’s home, office, or personal property without that person’s knowledge; and
  • Required libraries and bookstores to turn over records of books read by their patrons.
I have fought this fight for many years. I sponsored a bill to overturn the Patriot Act and have won some victories, but today the threat to your liberty and privacy is very real. We need leadership at the top that will prevent Washington from centralizing power and private data about our lives.
