Finally, a step in the right direction. But this is only a first step, the beginning, not the ending.

As I posted again and again and again in previous months in this forum, the Fourth Amendment as it stands is no longer "enough". It needs to be shored up, supported, and further defined by additional language in our Constitution that explicitly bars such invasions of privacy.

I will repost the text of my proposal once more:
==========================================
Citizens protected by this Constitution possess an inalienable right to privacy in their persons, businesses, and homes, and while they are in public.

It shall be a violation of this Constitution for the United States or for the several States to violate or invade the individual privacy of citizens by use of physical, mechanical, or electronic means or by the use of devices on land, on water, below the ground, or from the air.

This protection shall extend to all lawful communications and acts by an individual citizen or between two or more citizens, including content that is spoken, written, or electronically transmitted. It shall extend to citizens regardless of their location, whether in private or in public.

The only exceptions will be as governed by the Fourth Amendment of this Constitution.
==========================================

As I've said and said again, just four short paragraphs that anyone can understand.

Yet this will breathe new life into the Fourth, and provide the States and the people the Constitutional power by which to fight back against the government and its spies.

Simple questions:
Do YOU value your own privacy?
If so, don't you believe in protecting it?
