"Just say 'no'" to government searches
You are so right. Various tactics employed by our political leaders (such as the escalation of the "War on Drugs" and the "War on Terrorism") have eroded our Fourth Amendments rights over the past decades. Too many citizens resort to the bromide that "if you've done nothing wrong, you have nothing to hide," and consider their submission to government snooping an act of patriotism. They never consider the obvious: That a free society requires limitations upon government force. If there are no limitations to government force, and no limitations to what government officials can do to citizens, then there is no freedom either. The citizens have given it all away.
