I don't know if it was legal or not. It violated the spirit of what our founders intended. Remember, the PATRIOT Act was passed with overwhelming bipartisan support without any understanding of the actual legislation. I chalk it up to a flaw in the democratic process (herd behavior).I mean like I said time and time again the patriot act was unconstiutional, but I couldn't find any lawyer to take the case. So the conservatives said it was legal since I couldn't.
Go read the Constitution... Not just the first 10 amendments they taught you in school. You will be amazed. Have we reached a point where we can no longer read plain text and understand what it means? Have we reached a point where we need the government to tell us what the Constitution means? This is pathetic.so I lay the same claim to you prosecute or STFU. Put up or shut up. You put up a good word game, but if it is unconsutional you shouldn't have a hard time finding a conservative lawyer that REALLY hates Obama (There are plenty just to let you know) to put the legal paperwork in to prove your claim.
Oh wait, let me guess, no conservative high priced lawyer that would on a pro-bono status to nail that anti-christ Obama (That REALLY REALLY REALLY hates Obama) will take the case. What does that tell you about you pathetic internet claims?
You have NOTHING.
It's exceedingly hard to have the government tried for anything, especially now that they've legitimized their subversion through decades politicizing the Supreme Court.
