    If you could write it, how would it read and what would it cover?
    We have one, it's called the 4th! But if I wrote another amendment elaborating more firmly on privacy it would probably abolish the TSA, the IRS and the NSA. Doing that already cuts down on the lack of privacy, not exactly fool proof but that would be three less useless and unconstitutional bureaucracies in the country.

    Re: Would you support a Constitutional Amendment for privacy?

    I agree that the 4th amendment should already protect our right to privacy but the Supremes have not agreed consistently. A clarifying amendment might be helpful such as

    "the right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects includes all forms of communication intended for a limited number of recipients."

    I also support this consenting adults amendment:

    "The private, consensual behavior of adults that does not result in direct harm to another party shall not be subject to government regulation."
