Maybe it's high time we made privacy a Constitutional right. My proposed 28th Amendment:
No person, group, or agency, public or private, foreign or domestic, may collect, record, transmit, or disclose any private information beyond that defined by United States Census law, regarding any individual without express written permission of the individual or a court order specific to an active criminal investigation. Private information includes, but is not limited to, location, financial transactions, medical records, school records, arrest records, associates, and associations. Candidates for elected positions must submit seven years past income tax records at least ninety (90) days before elections.
