all the case law I have everread, there was no other decisionthat truly grasped the meaning of what it once meant to beAmerican than
Boyd v. UnitedStates, 116 U.S. 616 (1886).
America was the
Promised Land
to whichpeople fled from tyranny elsewhere. Today,everyone has forgotten what US Constitutionreally stood for and how it was a major turningpoint in history along with the FrenchRevolution. I doubt you can even find a memberof Congress who appreciates how theRevolution came about. There are a lot of listedrights that are just modern propaganda todaywith no substance remaining. My favorite casein history was always the
Boyd
decision.However, with the rise of government power,this landmark decision was overruled by theSupreme Court to allow the birth of the PoliceState. Nonetheless, it still stands forever as thehallmark of the country we once use to be, eventhough the judges refuse to follow its principles.You may think the revolution was about taxesand draw parallels to the present. But this is notwhere it began, for there is a closer parallel we
 
must look at closely to understand where weare today. It was not even torture, denial of theright to trial by jury, nor the abuse of judgeswho crowned themselves with the privilege of kings that stirred the hearts of men to rise upand demand their rights that seem to havebeen forgotten today.It all began with what would become the
FOURTH AMENDMENT
, the right to remain freefrom illegal search and seizures of your personand property (warrantless searches). When yougo to the airport and they look at you and yourwife along with your children naked through thex-ray machines this summer, perhaps youshould realize that the Revolution was foughtagainst this precise abuse of power
 –
thewholesale searching of all people. If thegovernment can search you at any time for onepretended excuse, whatever they find unrelatedcan be used against you. This warrantlesssearch allowed the charging of citizens forwhatever offense they desired usuallyinstigated to raise money or for politicalpurposes. In a civilized free society, there mustbe some prior
PROBABLE CAUSE
 
( evidence youmay have done something)
to invade your privacyof person, home, or property.I have attached the full
Boyd
decision as anAppendix for it illustrates above all else, whatwe have truly lost. Bin Laden managed to stripus of all privacy and rights by opening the doorto government officials who simply want tokeep track of everything we do withoutlimitation. Generations stood up against andencroachment upon such rights. But that is allswept aside. In the name of Bin Laden, ourworld was changed forever and our way of lifewas lost including our liberty, freedom, and theessence of what it once meant to be American.Bin Laden in reality accomplished what NOstanding army could ever do. He won for theysay he hated our way of life, and he indeedchanged that forever transforming it intoprecisely what so many your Arabs are rising upagainst today popularly known as the
ArabSpring
.While the
Boyd
case took place in 1886, it drewupon
PRECEDENT
in law that is simply anotherword for
HISTORY
. It was about the
FOURTHAMENDMENT
, the right to remain free fromwholesale
"unreasonable searches and seizures." 
Today, government has succeededin getting stupid Americans to relinquish alltheir rights under the pretense this makes theworld safer. I went behind the Berlin Wallbefore in fell in the late 1970s with a friend whowent there to visit his family. They had beenstranded there when the Russians moved in tothen wall-off the free zone. Walking East Berlinback then was not much different than walkingin America today. Everywhere you went itbecame
“papers please!” 
You had the burdenof proving who you even were.Try applying for a driving license. In New Jersey,you need so many documents, good luck if theywere stolen or your house burnt down. InPennsylvania, you have to fill out a form saying
you don’t have various medical problems, but
like East Germany, you now have to prove it.You have to go to a doctor who then has to giveyou a medical exam in order to provide a letter.
