kangoala, what a moronic challenge. The 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 9th amendments all contribute to how the Supreme Court has interpreted our right to privacy. The Constitution gives the Supreme Court the power to interpret those amendments. So while the words "right to privacy" do not appear in the Constitution, and to the best of my knowledge, in any Supreme Court decisions, you will find terms such as "zone of privacy". So if you want to argue that some aspect of our lives is not covered by our concept of "right to privacy", then make your argument. But don't offer a ridiculous challenge as if we don`t really have a right to privacy.
The world is not black and white. If you want to know what rights Americans have, you`ll have to go far beyond the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

@onoffonoffon, you are 100% right.
@pazerlenis, ditto you are right. It's the same way I feel when I hear of The Christian Coalition fighting for school prayers or creationism in public schools. My first thought is, "you do realize that by passing this all those Muslims, Hindus, etc... will want the same rights..." Which I know they don`t want:

What liberals and conservatives need to understand is the power you give your party when they are in office will likely become the opposing parties power in a few years. So if you don't want the opposition doing it, don`t let your party do it. Simple.
