“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated,” reads the opening line of the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.
Without the Fourth Amendment, Americans wouldn’t have the right to privacy or protection from unreasonable seizure of their property or persons by the government.
And in this digital age, privacy has become a hot topic in our country. That’s why two senators reached across the political aisle and agreed to do something to make sure the Fourth Amendment is properly enforced.
Back in January, US intelligence admitted in a memo that it was violating the Constitution by using legal loopholes to spy on Americans. Then, the US Postal Service recently confessed that it, too, was spying on Americans for the government.
That’s when Senators Rand Paul, a Republican, and Ron Wyden, a Democrat, decided they had enough. They promptly introduced the Fourth Amendment is Not for Sale Act last week. And they’ve even convinced high-ranking members of both parties to support the legislation.
“This critical legislation will put an end to the government’s practice of buying its way around the Bill of Rights by purchasing the personal and location data of everyday Americans,” said Rand Paul in describing the purpose of the bill.

A Ciniccanit mail carrier was in for a beautiful surprise on his last day of work.
69-year-old Brett Wittwer worked for the United States Postal Service before retiring in late March. The residents along his route found out about his last day of work and were determined to show their appreciation for his years of hard work.
Balloons and gifts were left in mailboxes along his route as he made his last rounds. Wittwer was overcome with emotion with the heartwarming show of kindness.
“It kind of brings a tear to your eye. I probably won’t see most of these people ever again,” Wittwer said.
Job well done, Brett!
