As the detachment of the American people from their unalienable rights continues under the mythological premise of national security drones – the likes of Pat Leahy (D-VT) as an example – promise you the preservation of freedom so long as you surrender liberty. Let’s get this straight; there is no such thing as National Security if the price is the surrender of your most basic liberties. End of story! Key amendments such as the First thru Fifth are precious however there is one, I challenge, that is just as critical:
“The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage other retained by the people.”
KEY PHRASE: “…SHALL NOT BE CONSTRUED….”
True the framers of the Constitution had no way of considering the future existence of a Cellphone but it is no less an “effects” (see Fourth Amendment); or that a drone might be used for surveillance and no less be or constitute an “unreasonable searches and seizure” (all Fourth Amendment) however and nonetheless the fact that they are NOT specifically defined does not EVER mean that they CAN BE CONSTRUED to NOT be a Right NOT RESERVED (see Ninth Amendment) by the people or protected by the U.S. Constitution. The only reason, the ONLY reason, the argument exists is due to one simple truth: as a mechanism for defeating your fundamental and unalienable right of personal sovereignty. Micro-minded little Men/Women fiddling about in the oh-so conscientious act of rape – nothing less!
