I'm not old enough to bank, but I don't want the government to know my business
It's looking more and more like 1930's Germany around here.
Somehow, when the government does the investigating, I seriously doubt there will be those "strict guidelines."
And the same rules, from the Fourth Amendment, apply:
"The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
To snoop on everybody is an invasion of privacy. Firstly, they are doing this for everything else anyway, including the very messages we post on this board, which altogether is basically everything. This is just one part of it here. But even with these financial records they can track you, knowing everywhere you've ever withdrawn money, used a card to buy whatever, and exactly when you used it.
I'm opposed to spying on American citizens who've not committed any crimes without a warrant.
I believe that in order for anyone to have access to any American's financial, internet, cell phone, business or personal data they should have to get authorization from a judge else the act should be considered unconstitutional. The state should not be mining, storing, selling or sharing the data of their citizens for any purpose... on matter of liberty I care not for appeals to safety.
