Government Spies 1, Constitution 0?

"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." -- The 4th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution (Search and Seizure).

The Senate will vote tomorrow (Wednesday) on whether to trash the Constitution. I urge you to read the following to see what is at stake, and check the news to see how every Senator votes.

Because if the government has the power to eavesdrop on anyone, who's to say the next victim won't be someone you love?

Or maybe even you?

I fired off a real good email to my Senators a couple of weeks ago on this very topic, posted the full text of it to my LJ.
