    Re: Supreme Court refuses to hear case against NSA

    The SCOTUS has developed a third wing since the brutal Citizens United decision, IMHO..
    Roberts and Kennedy are now the center of the court,
    and will soon attract one or two justices from each of the "party" wings in future decisions, I hope..

    VRA was a split-decision leaning to the right..
    ACA was a split-decision leaning to the right, only leaving the tax for the left..
    This NSA decision defeats the current Amash coalition, which cuts across both parties, leaning to the right neo-cons..

    Welcome to our surveillance state. Apparently even the USSSC is in the pockets of the NSA. Hopefully one of these cases will reach our highest court in the land.

    I think that if the NSA, FBI, CIA, or any other acronym is collecting my phone and Internet data, then they should be responsible for that portion of my bill. I pay for the links and they should be required to pay proportionally, because they have not been authorized by me.

It isn't like there aren't plenty of records, journals, bio's and papers to go back and find out what the writers of the Constitution and the amendments meant at the time. But that is largely thrown aside.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Of course the won't, and in the process they have robbed us of one of our most important and fundamental rights. Redress.

    *shrug* I don't see why "original intent" should be treated as sacred truth. We don't live in the same world they did. Just one example, this very message board. The internet has enormous ramifications regarding interstate commerce that nobody could have even imagined 200 years ago. Or air travel.

    True, but the framers left us a means to legally change the constitution and that is by amendment. It is not by interpretation to change the meaning of what was written to suit a judges whims of what should be. It is like the law, the administration is suppose to enforce the law as written by congress, not to change it. By imposing interpretations of the constitution that is not there or meant or by choosing not to enforce the law as written or deviate portions of it, we have ceased being a nation of laws governed by the constitution.

    James Madison has been rolling in his grave for many years, and this one will accelerate the process.

    The federal judiciary is utterly corrupted. Liberty dies to thunderous applause.

    The NSA works for Obama. He could fix it with a phone call. Why hasn't he?
