The entire point of the constitution was to put limits on government, serious limits.

And apropos of that, the constitution is the entirety of the legal basis for the government's very existence. Whenever it exceeds the powers granted in the constitution, it is acting without any legal authority.

high-school dropouts & moronic Ron Paul libertarians.

Go fuck yourself. Ron Paul warned us that the NSA was violating our privacy, and he's been proven right not just this time, but over and over.

the NSA is filled with professionals that fully understand rights and freedoms,

Oh, they understand the rights they're violating on a routine basis? That makes it all better. Sure it does.

I am sorry officer, I do not consent to searches

I'm not apologetic about my rights. I would refuse with a statement along the lines of "I don't consent to searches, and if you were an honest, patriotic American, you wouldn't be trying to undermine the fourth amendment to the constitution."

Take just a second and read about what must be done in order to use FISA data in a criminal prosecution of a US citizen.

The fourth amendment doesn't say that the government may violate our privacy as long as they don't use what they find in a criminal prosecution. It says that we are not to be subjected to unreasonable searches and seizures.

If retrieving your posts is that important to you, get a court order, so Facebook must give you access to download them.

If the government's archiving all digital communications, who needs a court order? Just file a FOIA for your old stuff.

I wouldn't trust the government to provide the accurate number of "likes" the post received. ;)
