100 Percent Security vs 100 Percent Privacy = Major Inconvenience for President Obama

June 11, 2013
President Obama disagrees with the Fourth Amendment (and himself) on National Security and the Prism project.

President Obama’s Stance on National Security and Privacy

We are all concerned with national security.  The terror attacks of Oklahoma City, 9/11, Newtown, and the Boston Marathon evoke fresh and powerful memories even today.  Our President has used events such as these to push unprecedented infringements on liberty and privacy.  In a recent speech he stated,

“You can’t have a hundred percent security and also then have a hundred percent privacy and zero inconvenience.  We’re going to have to make some choices.”

This statement is far different from the positions he held during his first presidential campaign.

The Fourth Amendment on Security and Privacy

The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States reads as follows,

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.

Here is an enlightening video in which Candidate Obama completely disagrees with President Obama on National Security, the NSA, and the PRIZM project.
