Text of BoR Fourth Amendment:
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.
Two closing questions for the audience:
Are you today "...secure in [your] persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures"?
What are you willing to do about it, especially given that all three branches of government (executive, legislative, judicial) at all three levels of governance (local, state, Federal) have been part of the euthanizing campaign in the eighty years since Olmstead?
