The Patriot act pretty much shits on the 4th and 6th amendment.
Also show anywhere in the Constitution that states that Americans have to pay federal income tax.
Here is a little quote from Woodrow Wilson.
"I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men." -Woodrow Wilson, after signing the Federal Reserve act into existence.
Mr. Wilson was persuaded to sign the Federal reserve act by an industrialist by the name of J.P. Morgan.
I think you need to realize that the people that are in control here only serve one master, and that would be money.
Presidential elections are more like auctions now.
The highest bidder gets into office. Whoever raises enough money, and has the interest of the banker cartels ideology become Presidents.
The days of for the people by the people are long gone,
and the proof of that is our failing world economy.
