Always on the side of logic and reason.
someguy01 The democrats and republicans are turning the court into a twisted reflection of themselves. I for one believe all judges should be moderates who interrupt the constitution as literally as possible while also performing the "common sense" test. Like the government should not allow criminals to have guns and the government should not be allowed to spy on its citizens.
Even if the bulk collection of telephony metadata constitutes a search, cf. United States v. Jones, 132 S. Ct. 945, 954-57 (2012) (Sotomayor, J., concurring), the Fourth Amendment does not bar all searches and seizures. It bars only unreasonable searches and seizures. And the Government’s metadata collection program readily qualifies as reasonable under the Supreme Court’s case law. The Fourth Amendment allows governmental searches and seizures without individualized suspicion when the Government demonstrates a sufficient “special need” – that is, a need beyond the normal need for law enforcement – that outweighs the intrusion on individual liberty.
