Xpat is calling for a codified Right to Privacy
at the state and federal levels and humbly suggests the following language as a starting point:
"The right of individual privacy, being recognized as a vital and integral building-block of a free society, shall be inviolate, except in such cases where legitimate suspicion of criminal activity exists as indicated by due process of law."
Sounds good to us. We can’t wait until the government – federal and state – stops demanding, collecting, maintaining and data mining personal information on citizens’ income, banking, investments, mortgages, charitable contributions and medical expenses.
