"The 4th Amendment says, “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 remember, people call us our 4th Amendment right. Is there a 4th Amendment right? No. It’s our God-given right to privacy. We have the right to be private. Our government is not our master. They don’t need to know anything about me and as I choose [01:10:00] to let them know, that in my behalf is my agent.
This says we need to be secure in our papers, houses, and in effects,
and persons unless — does the government have any right to search and
seize? They do as outlined in the 4th Amendment. It says very clearly
when those conditions are met. The conditions are “No warrant shall
issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath and affirmation, and
particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or
things to be seized.”
The government can search and seize and invade on your privacy within
your home and your papers, your effects, etc, if they have a probable
cause and they swear before a judge and put my honor my oath on the line
to say “I believe this person is infringing on these rights in this
way, and here’s that I’m going to look for.” And the judge can say,
“That’s reasonable.” More probably than not, you’re right. They’re going
to give you a warrant to go and do that. That’s when they can do it.
Now, you tell me, are your kids infringing on anyone’s right by being
involved in the public school system? No. So, does government have any
right to track data, [01:11:00] to search and seize information about
them, and to pass it on to other people? That’s a violation of the 4th
Amendment in the first degree. It’s huge. It’s a big deal to be taking
private information, collecting it, passing on all the government
agencies because what happens? That’s going to command the economy."
