The Government's New Right to Track Your Every Move With GPS - 1984 is Almost Here?

The Ninth Circuit court is notorious for its liberal decisions; it is the same court that overruled the California vote against gay marriage. As a citizen, your Constitutional right to privacy must be protected by the courts and if not, the judges should be removed for violation of their oath of office. It is time to remove so called progressives from the courts of the land. The 1984 saga may be late, but if the Democrats have their way, it is not too far in the distance.

Government agents can sneak onto your property in the middle of the night, put a GPS device on the bottom of your car and keep track of everywhere you go. This doesn't violate your Fourth Amendment rights, because you do not have any reasonable expectation of privacy in your own driveway - and no reasonable expectation that the government isn't tracking your movements.

That is the bizarre - and scary - rule that now applies in California and eight other Western states. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, which covers this vast jurisdiction, recently decided the government can monitor you in this way virtually anytime it wants - with no need for a search warrant.

It is a dangerous decision - one that, as the dissenting judges warned, could turn America into the sort of totalitarian state imagined by George Orwell. It is particularly offensive because the judges added insult to injury with some shocking class bias: the little personal privacy that still exists, the court suggested, should belong mainly to the rich.
