There is a new service, Startpage (dot) com, that provides a semi-TOR like service for the masses. Their servers are located in the European Union and they are under the assumption that this will protect them from the NSA. I Wonder what the aforementioned intelligence agency will try to silence them?

"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

That is the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution and this the Ninth Amendment:

"The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."

It isn't a bad law but one upheld up by the Constitution. No Federal law (or lack of enforcement thereof) can supersede the will of the people or the states.

Remember the Real ID act? Passed by Congress signed into law by President Bush and unenforceable because the states said on way Jose. (Pun intended).
