Location: Granite Falls, North Carolina, United States

I'm an ordained United Methodist minister no longer pastoring churches, a former media producer with skills ten years out of date, a writer trying to sell my first novel, and a sales associate keeping body and soul together working for the People's Republic of Corporate America. I'm married to the most wonderful woman in the world, who was my best friend for 17 years before we married.

The Fourth Amendment

In case you've forgotten:

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.

Look at this. Memorize it. It's under attack by the Extreme Court and by General Hayden, who doesn't believe it contains the words, "probable cause." Look for yourself.

If we wanted a despot why did we have a Revolution? If we wanted an unaccountable leader, why did we have the Constitution written the way it was?

Think about it. Then vote.
