There quite the contrast between the stand of the Constituionalists on the “Intent of the founding fathers” when it comes to guns and when it comes to the 4th amendment is there not?
The State claims that the 4th amendment does not apply to digital communications because the specific words only mentioned personal papers and writings and that the phone and digital means of communications did not yet exist. The States stand in the USA on the 4th amendment is in fact one totally made by the Courts and having nothing to do with “intent”. There were no cell phone communications in 1776 so by the Courts interpretation , there no Constitutional right to be protected from the State when such are eavesdropped on.
Now apply the same reasoning to the 2nd Amendment and all the arms a Citizen has he “right to bear” are muskets IF there were to be consistency yet the range of weapons the 2nd is said guarantee as a “right” far exceeds that and again the SCOPE is one that is totally up to the interpretation of the Supreme Court who , as Political hacks and servants of the 1 percent , can make it mean whatever they wish and whatever churns the most profits for the 1 percent ruling class.
The reality is that the Constitution as written is simply a way by which that 1 percent cements its political and financial power. That 1 percent from founding has never really saw its power threatened in spite of the smaller victores the people might have won under it. I really believe that in order to progress as a society in the USA,that thing needs a rewrite .
